All About "Back to Basics"

Pope's School of Percussion has brought Marcus' vision for the "Back to Basics" drum workshop to Huntsville since 2013 with the help of private sponsorship and a team of dedicated volunteers. Master classes have been taught by world-renowned professionals such as Calvin Rodgers, Will Kennedy, Larnell Lewis, PJ Spraggins, Darrell Tibbs and JD Blair. 


Mike Johnston is coming in 2019!!


  "Back to Basics" is for all drummers, any skill level,  aged middle-school and older.  Lunch is always included.  The 2018 door prizes were a black Pearl Midtown drum set and a snare!  Where were you?  Hope to see you in 2019.
