Karl Brazil Masterclass

Karl Brazil Masterclass

KARL BRAZIL MASTERCLASS: URGENT ANNOUNCEMENT 11.1.20

Unfortunately due to other drumming commitments, Karl has had to forfeit his trip to Guernsey next Saturday. Karl is devastated that he cannot come over and we will look at him visiting Guernsey at a later date.

We do however have some VERY good news! Ralph Salmins has agreed to take Karl’s place next Saturday.     Ralph’s signature groove has made him drummer of choice for producers and composers worldwide and he has performed or recorded with Paul McCartney, Robbie Williams, George Martin, Aretha Franklin, Elton John, Madonna, James Brown, Tom Jones, Mike Oldfield, Chaka Khan, Dionne Warwick, Quincy Jones, Diana Ross, Burt Bacharach, Alison Krauss, Sheryl Crow, Elvis Costello, Jeff Beck, The Beach Boys, Michel Legrand and many more. Ralph toured the world in Van Morrison’s band from 1995-1999, recording four albums with him. He has played on the soundtracks to over 150 movies, including Harry Potter: The Prisoner of Azkaban, Goldeneye, Tomorrow Never Dies, Charlie and The Chocolate Factory, Moulin Rouge and Lord Of The Rings: Return Of The King. Ralph joined The Waterboys in 2011 and continues to record and tour internationally with the band.

A committed educator, Ralph is a Professor at the Royal College of Music and Guildhall School of Music and Drama, London

Ralph is a true master of his instrument and this will be a masterclass you will not want to miss out on. There are still tickets available on www.guernseytickets.gg so come and share with us in a fantastic evening. There will also be a Gretsch Renown drum kit to be won in the raffle.

Beau Sejour are aware of the change to this event and will be changing the website accordingly on Monday. Tickets already purchased will still be valid.

Summer School was awesome!

Our Summer School students had an amazing week of team-building and honing their music skills last week. Friends were made, ideas shared and many laughs had! On Sunday, they played to a packed venue as friends and family gathered to support them and to see the product of their hard work over the week. Well done everyone!
