Ballyhane Studios are delighted to host one of the most critically acclaimed and commercially successful drummers of the last few decades, Ralph Rolle for a series of exclusive events and clinics including a drumming masterclass, an intensive rhythm section clinic, and a limited number of private one-to-one lessons.
Having played with greats such as Nile Rodgers & Chic, Stevie Wonder, Pharrell Williams, Aretha Franklin, Lady Gaga, Notorious BIG, Sting, Usher, Paul Simon, Erykah Badu, Queen Latifah and Janelle Monae to name a just a few Ralph Rolle’s masterclass is not to be missed. Covering everything from the songs and stories of his illustrious career to delving deep into groove, sound and technique along with the opportunity for participant’s playing to be assessed this is a masterclass not to be missed.
An incredibly limited number of one on one drum lessons are available for those who would like to get up and personal with one of the drumming greats. Each lesson takes place over the course of an hour and each participant is guaranteed to come away with a wealth of knowledge. Ralph will even track drums for people’s recordings and demos should they so desire.
Last but certainly not least Ralph is also offering an intensive rhythm section clinic. Not aimed just solely at drummers the clinic will benefit all musicians as it examines and discusses the interaction amongst players in a band environment and how they can cooperate to co-create a pocket.
