Now in its 3nd year, hosted by Matt Green from the UK National Drum Fair, a monthly drum clinic invites some of the UK’s top drumming talent to perform in The Palace Studio.  The clinics are interactive, inspirational and educational.

He has also held many masterclasses at Royal College of Music, Royal Academy of Music, Royal Northern College of Music, Trinity College and many others. 

There is also the opportunity for a deserving local player every month to join the clinic via an open audition held a few weeks before. So whether you are a student, amateur or playing regularly in a band and would like the chance of playing with some of the country’s leading drummers, please fill in the form on the ‘Apply to Play’ page.
