Following his visit to Limerick in 2017, Ralph Rolle is returning to offer a series of more in-depth clinics at Ballyhane Studios; an intensive rhythm section clinic, a drumming masterclass and a strictly limited number of private one-to-one lessons. Ralph is even willing to track drums for people if required!
- Ralph's drumming masterclass takes place on Thursday 15th February from 19:00 - 21:00. Ralph will get deep into groove, sound, technique, and will assess participant’s playing. With Ralph’s resume it is fair to assume that he knows more about this than most and it is a great opportunity to learn about this specialist topic from a master!
- From 13:00 - 18:00 on Friday 16th February Ralph will be available for private one-to-one 1 hour drum lessons for those who are interested, and will track drums for people’s recordings and demos should they so desire.
- Finally, Ralph's intensive rhythm section clinic takes place from 19:00 - 21:00 on Friday 16th February and will benefit all musicians, not just drummers, taking an in-depth view of the interaction amongst players in a band environment and how they can co-operate to co-create a pocket. This is an essential aspect of modern music and one which few people can successfully explain.
Ralph Rolle has been performing for over 35 years and has played with names such as Stevie Wonder, Pharrell Williams, Aretha Franklin, Lady Gaga, Bette Midler, Notorious BIG, D’angelo, Sting, Nile Rodgers & Chic, Usher, Paul Simon, Al Green, Erykah Badu, Common, The David Letterman Show Band, Queen Latifah, Janelle Monae, Crystal Waters… To name a few!
