Will Calhoun, a multi-Grammy award winning drummer from the legendary rock group “Living Color”, will offer Intermediate and advanced individual lessons on the drum set. The material presented in these lessons, Frequency Rhythmic Assimilation (FRA), are aimed to be universally applicable while geared toward developing each student’s individual ability.
