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.
The Grid Book Percussion Studio is a well-equipped facility which offers campers the opportunity to play on live instruments in a large drumline setting. Our building offers a rehearsal space dedicated to marching percussion, retail space to discover more about Grid Book products, public restrooms, and refrigerator space for students who bring their own meal. For campers over 18, there are a variety of food and beverage locations within walking distance of the studio.
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.
Grid Book Nation Community
Our dedication to excellence attracts individuals from across the globe. The Grid Book Community consists of percussion performers and educators from many different backgrounds with many different interests. This diverse group of friendly personalities helps make Grid Book a truly special community.
Awesome Local Hotels & Attractions
Coming from out of town? Our studio is in Clearwater, FL right next to the beach (Ranked No. 1 beach by TripAdvisor in 2019) and a variety of amenities and attractions. Our Drumline Camp parents always find fun things to do during the day while their kids attend camp.
5 Minute Uber Ride From The Airport
Our studio is right next to Tampa International Airport (TPA) and St. Pete-Clearwater International Airport (PIE) making travel plans easy.
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.

Our mission is to provide memorable experiences in an inclusive community that fosters personal, social, and emotional growth.

Where are you located?
Grid Book Percussion Studio
Is this for local students only?
No, each year we have many students travel from out of state to attend our camps.
Do I have to provide my own meals?
Yes. We have an hour meal break, but food is not provided. We have a refrigerator to store food from home, and most campers use food delivery services like Uber Eats or Door Dash to have meals delivered to the studio. For campers over 18, there are many places to eat within walking distance of the studio.
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.
How does transportation to and from camp work?
You are responsible for your own transportation. Our location is surrounded by multiple forms of public transportation. Just make sure you are on time when camp begins, and have a way to leave or be picked up after camp.
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, without refund, for reasons including, but not limited to the following: Use or possession of chemical substances, cigarettes, vapes/vape products, chewing tobacco, alcohol or illegal drugs, unauthorized use or possession of weapons, conduct detrimental to the camp and/or other campers.
