WHY GRID BOOK DRUMLINE CAMP?
With over 20 years of experience in the percussion community, we strive to bring you the best possible information to take your performance to the next level. Our mission is to provide memorable experiences in an inclusive atmosphere that fosters personal, social, and emotional growth. Get ready to have the time of your life drumming, getting better, and creating memories that will last a lifetime.
Here’s a peek at what you can expect from a Grid Book Drumline Camp:
Camp Friends Are Best Friends
The friends made at camp are likely to last a lifetime. The camp experience offers so many opportunities for growth that it is hard not to develop lasting friendships with the people those experiences are shared with.
Learn Something New
Our curriculum is designed to provide a variety of information in an order that helps you develop in a world-class way.
Intimate Class Sizes
Our camps have been designed to provide a very personalized experience. Class sizes are limited to 10 members to provide a lot of individual time and Q&A Sessions.
The Grid Book Staff is best described as phenomenal. Mark Perrett and John Lluvera are outstanding educators who truly care about the individual experience of each camper. With over 20 years educating in the field of percussion and a track record of producing students who perform at the highest levels in the activity, your camper is in good hands.
At the end of the day your experience as a marching member is very little about the music, and much more about being a good person. At Grid Book we help students develop leadership qualities that will translate into everything else they do in life. We build great role models and the theme of leadership is something we spread through the entire camp.
Chop Out Sessions
Our famous Chop Out Sessions are fun and exciting with energetic music that we play along to and chop out. This is always a camp favorite.
At Grid Book we are committed to the growth and development of our campers. Our mission is to provide memorable experiences in an inclusive community that fosters personal, social, and emotional growth. We truly believe our camps have the power to transform lives and are proud to continue our mission of bringing you the best camp experience in the world.
Here is what past campers had to say:
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What age do I (or my child) have to be to attend camp?
During your camp days, you will log onto the Grid Book Snare Camp Livestream using the link sent to you via email. Each day will include two 3 hour education blocks where we will go over a variety of topics. You will be interacting with the clinicians during the live stream in a number of ways including playing on your drum or practice pad, listening to masterclass lectures, having conversations, watching other campers drum, and getting personalized feedback for your performance.
Do I have to have a web cam to participate?
We encourage students to use a device that has both audio and video capabilities. That way we can watch you play. But we have had students join the camp without video and they gained a lot of value through simply playing along and watching the stream itself.
Are online camps actually worth it?
Yes, the online camps bring a high level of value and allows you to attend camp from anywhere in the world with an internet connection. Our online camp includes the same exact curriculum and mission as the In-Studio camp. Students in the past who have attended our online camps have said they loved the experience and many have made drumline auditions since attending. The level of growth for any of our camps is undeniable.
How can I prepare for camp?
The most important thing you can do to prepare for camp is to come with an open mind and a great attitude. Campers are not required to have anything memorized or prepared for camp. Just come ready to learn and have some questions prepared for our Q&A sessions.
What should I bring to camp?
Is this camp for beginners only?
This camp is great for beginning to advanced players. We designed the camp to give feedback in an appropriate way as needed for the skills of each camper.
What is your dismissal policy?
While problems of the following nature are rare, our primary goal is to ensure that all campers have a positive camp experience, therefore, it is understood that a camper will be dismissed from camp if their conduct is detrimental to the camp experience and/or other campers.
