Drum Corps Clinic!

Learn to play beats on drums and cymbals and march in a few parades!

Let’s start a drum corps and march in a few spring parades! Learn to play marching beats on parade snare drums, tri-toms, bass drums, and even cymbals if you want. We’ll learn basic drum technique, come up with our very own street beats, and – fingers crossed! –  if circumstances allow we’ll march in the Memorial Day and Alumni Day parades in the village of Woodstock. Drums and sticks are provided and we'll make our own practice pads. Let’s make some noise!

IMPORTANT: The health and safety of our visitors and staff is our #1 priority. If, due to circumstances beyond our control, it becomes necessary for Artistree to close its doors this fall, any in-progress classes will move to an online format.  Our instructors and patrons will keep in mind that a transition to virtual learning is a possibility. Artistree will issue no refunds or credits for classes that cannot continue to run in person and must move to a virtual platform.
