Boom! International Festival of Percussion presents

Ed Goyer: Improvising and Comping with Mallets

Masterclass

4 Oct 2022

In this session, Ed Goyer will discuss and demonstrate ideas for improvising on the vibraphone and other mallets and techniques for accompanying yourself or outlining harmony for the piece, if you are the only harmonic instrument.

Young players will be invited to participate in the masterclass.

If you have access needs, please call the Box Office on 02 9061 5344 to book tickets.

Please note this event replaces the 4 Oct Shaun Trubiano masterclass event (The Snare Drum: Melody Of Love), which has been cancelled.
