Space is extremely limited to allow Jimmy to personally guide students through exercises that help hone and improve their drumming skills. Throughout most of the camp, students will play alongside Jimmy on their own, individual practice kits and pedals and benefit from the invaluable experience of drumming with a rock drumming legend.
