hey friends!

i am thrilled to announce my first-ever rhythm section camp next august 5-8 in nashville, tn. this will be an action-packed four days and nights filled with lessons, workshops, live performances, jam sessions and syncopated sixteenth-notes!

this camp is for musicians who want to further develop their skills on guitar, bass, drums, and keyboards. if you play any of these instruments, this camp is for you!

if you know me at all, you know that i am very passionate about rhythm, groove, pocket, and time feel. we are going to discuss and explore all of these topics and more. each night will feature a concert from me, my band, and our special guests. i’ve handpicked all of the instructors not only for their experience and expertise but also for their ability to articulate how and why they do the things they do. this is truly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to learn directly from the best of the best.

every morning, there will be a breakout session for you to focus on your particular instrument, followed by a group masterclass with me and my band. we’ll take a break for lunch, and in the afternoon, we’ll come back for another breakout session and a group masterclass with our special guest for the day. at night, there will be a concert, and after the concert, we’ll have several jam rooms for you to get together with other campers and instructors!

this camp is for everyone, from beginners to advanced levels. we will have specific lessons each day that will cater to your ability level. the beauty of these rhythm section concepts is that they apply to all skill levels!
