Rhythm and rhythmic skills, along with the hearing skills needed to control your performance, are key skills in drumming education. But how do you create and generate ideas? And how can you educate yourself (and your students) to develop improved rhythmic abilities? This clinic will offer a structured, in-depth approach using perspectives from the realms of world music (including African and Carnatic influences), Swiss/French rudiments, and fresh approaches to use these inspirational sources.

The topic of collapsed rudiments (a concept of the late great Jim Chapin) and streamlined technical abilities (including Moeller Technique) will be just one of the tools used here to process rhythmic concepts. Claus will demonstrate these concepts both in solo excerpts and musical applications.
