Larnell Lewis Drum Workshop
The Beaches Jazz Festival is excited to be hosting Larnell Lewis for the second time! Larnell is one of the very best drummers on the music scene today. If you play drums, or are just a fan, this workshop is for you. There will be time for a Q&A. Come and meet the amazing Larnell Lewis!
Toronto native Larnell Lewis is a musician, composer, producer, educator and clinician. One of Canada’s most promising up-and-coming drummers, Lewis has garnered international status with his most recent works with the three-time Grammy Award winning band, Snarky Puppy. He is a part-time music professor at Humber College, has been featured on the cover of Modern Drummer (September 2016), and has performed with such artists as Fred Hammond, Lalah Hathaway, Lisa Fischer, and Laila Biali.
Most recently, Larnell has been focused on recording his upcoming debut album In The Moment. This project explores Larnell’s deep connection to jazz, fusion, and his Afro-Caribbean roots. In his clinic Larnell will share his approaches to drum parts and overall composition for the album. And as always, participants can expect to get a few pointers on foot technique as well as other fundamentals for the instrument.
Larnell is sponsored by Yamaha Acoustic and Electronic Drums, Evans Drum Heads, Promark Drum Sticks and Zildjian Cymbals.
