Making Metronome Practice More Fun

Mark Kelso  /  UPDATED Aug 19, 2022

We recently had the very special honour of hosting Mark Kelso out to our studio! The lesson topic was “Making Metronome Practice More Fun” which we knew was going to be beneficial for all drummers of all levels. Needless to say, I think you’re going to like it.

Mark’s ability to play a wide variety of musical styles has scored him gigs with artists such as Michael Buble, Shania Twain, Gino Vanelli, and Pete Townsend. Mark has been featured in Drums ETC., Canadian Musician, and DRUM! magazine and has also been a featured clinician for many different drum festivals such as Montreal Drumfest, Musicfest, and Percussive Arts Society International Convention (PASIC).
