Default Drum Clinics in the UK? How to find them...

Hi all,

Does anyone know if there is a directory online where you can view all the the drum clinics and events that are booked for the year in the UK?

Or, how do people keep up with whats on in theUK?

Any advice much appreciated.

Many thanks
Gavin

In general, it's a good idea to keep track of music/drum shops' sites or facebook pages, where they announce upcoming clinics. 'Like' those facebook pages so you always see the latest from them. You could also sign up for their emailing lists, but you'll also get a lot of unrelated mail.

You should do the same for all applicable manufacturer's sites, as they usually help promote the artists whose clinics they also sponsor.

Everything you need to know about the UK drumming scene. And not a bad bunch of chaps on the Forum.

Many thanks for the response. Good idea. I'll get liking.

What about drum publications - are there any that are particularly good at listing clinics?

Thanks

Print magazines often have to much lead time to insert clinic announcements, unless an artist has a lengthy clinic schedule that can be promoted months in advance. Online magazines will of course be more current.

Try Zildjian , Paiste, Gretsch etc. websites and look for their artists sections. They will sometimes print their clinic schedules. My local shop has a Twitter and Facebook account and post clinics there.
