Default 15 for tickets to Aaron Spears UK clinic

I wondered if fellow UK drummers felt 15 was a bit steep for a clinic, (despite the obvious logisital and cost implications of getting Aaron over from America).

Having a day job, I've got no trouble paying - but I reckon it might be just a bit too much for kids or students.

I also wondered, what the average price was for a clinic in the US or the continent.

The majority of the clinics here are free. The drummers are usually in town for a concert or such and their sponsors are selling product with them there. I did pay 10.00USD to see Bozzio and 5.00 to see one other drummer. Depends on the drummer, shop, and the sponsors.

Yes $10 US is about average. That is not much more than a cover charge to see a band or the cost of a movie ticket. Why would you not think that an artist like Spears would be worth it? They need to get paid for their work.

If you want to see Aaron Spears for free - http://www.drummerworld.com/Videos/aaronspearsMD.html

Aaron Spears is already doing a UK clinic tour, so his TA travel costs are spread over a number of events. If you want value (& by the way, I think 15 is completely acceptable for a clinic worth seeing), then you can see Aaron at the London Drum show, plus a ton of other great players (including our own Derek Roddy), & a good gear exhibition, all for 15!!!!!!

Or maybe they want to keep numbers down? Perhaps Aaron prefers a smaller crowd for his clinics.

$40-$50 in Oz.

We don't get all that many clinics so I don't mind.
