Drumming Discipline & Improvisation

John Blackwell  /  Mar 26, 2014

John Blackwell was an amazing drummer who played with Prince, Patti LaBelle, Cameo, and Justin Timberlake – and he was kind enough to visit our studio for a special drum lesson on Drumming Discipline & Improvisation. His passion for sharing drumming knowledge was inspirational, and it was an honor to have him out at Drumeo.
