Master Class – All drummers must bring their own instruments, music stand, area rug, sticks, practice pad, unless all supplies are provided. The preferred drum set is a 6-piece drum set with crash left, ride, Crash right & Hi Hats. Level 1 drummers can bring a 5-piece drum set. In the master class we will all play the same groove or fills at the same time, creating one big sound.

Some grooves and fills played will come directly from A Book written by JD along with other styles and relavent topics.

Drummer slots: The number of drummers in the class can range from 10 to 50 depending on the venue size. Reserve your spot in advance to ensure a spot in the front.

Here is an example of a daily schedule for drum master classes with JD:


It’s different from a concert and master class in many ways. The audience will experience the art of the musician up close and personal on a musical and verbal level in a clinic setting. The audience will bring no drums; just sit back and enjoy. Expect Band tracks and drum loops to be used during the performance and maybe a live band appearance as well.

The clinic will always involve Q & A segments relevant to his world travel & musical experiences. He looks forward to sharing his stories of the life journey through music and how being a global traveler affects his level of passion and drive to live life to the fullness. Most of all, it’s in the drum clinic he explains how he interpret rhythms in his own special way. Ear plugs worn at this event maybe necessary.


Private class involve the teacher and student studying the drums together with undivided attention to the student’s needs. The location of private classes may be in person or online.

Here is an example of a private lesson scheduled in between master class sessions as mentioned before:

30 minute sessions:
1245pm – 115pm
315pm – 345pm
545pm – 615pm
