Groove & Independence With Robert Castelli (17th November 19:30 GMT)

A veteran drummer, Robert Castelli joins us at Point Blank to show you how you can improve your groove and build technique and endurance with practice.

Born into a family of drummers (a grandfather, two uncles & his father), Robert learned the basics from his father, who, along with his Uncle, were lifetime members of the NYC Musicians Union, AFM Local 802.

His playing as a sideman has been written about in The NY Times online, Cadence Magazine, Jazz Halo Belgium, and Drums & Percussion Germany. His 3 Boom releases have received critical acclaim from some of the most widely read magazines and websites in the USA, Canada, UK, and Europe.

Attendees will come away with a new perspective on how to practice and how to make the most out of your practice time. It will inspire you to reach for new heights, be open to new styles and play with confidence and presence.
