Billy Cobham's Art of the Rhythm Section Retreat
THIS IS FOR YOU IF:
If you're an advanced student, educator, or high-intermediate to highly advanced level of musician, this program is for you! For optimal participation in this program, you need to have a good command of your instrument, from at least a high-intermediate to a highly advanced level, plus a basic understanding of how to collaborate with one another in the Rhythm Section, in terms of presenting a musical statement as a group. While it's not required to read music/sight read, it would be helpful, but not necessary.
Please note: This program is not intended for beginner to basic-intermediate musicians. This intensive program is chiefly about how to interpret, translate and react to the musical ideas presented. Billy and our coaching team will be working with you, and are not there to be judgmental personally or over-critical. This is a fun and supportive learning environment where everyone learns together from the immersive experience.
We look forward to seeing you there!
