Workshop with Chester Thompson

Drum Workshop (Time: TBA)
From Jazz (Weather Report), to Rock (Frank Zappa and the Mothers), to Pop (Genesis/Phil Collins) to Gospel (Ron Kenoly), Chester Thompson has surpassed the boundaries of musical genres. Chester's performance and recording experiences have influenced over three decades of music and musicians. Whether he is playing drum kit or percussion, Chester's masterful subtleties and unyielding time create the firm musical foundation for any musical genre. Every time Chester plays he gives 110% - there is no such thing as practice. Every time he plays, it's all about worship. To learn more about Chester and his music, visit, www.chesterthompson.com


Workshop with Robert Sterling

Song Writing Workshop (Time: TBA)
Robert Sterling has managed to make a living of one sort or another for the past three decades in the world of music, all the while stealthily avoiding both fame and fortune. Blessed with a face made for radio and a talent level officially gauged as "slightly above average," Robert is convinced if he can stick with music for another ten years, he will finally get it right. If you're looking for his formal bio, check out his website at www.robertsterlingmusic.com.
