Featured is the music of San Diego native Mike Watson, whose compositions resemble that of Frank Zappa, Mahavishnu Orchestra, and Mr. Bungle. Odd times and rhythmic trickery are a staple in Watson's music and drummer Bill Ray tackles them effortlessly to the point that they feel natural and smooth. Topics covered will revolve around creating a drum part for any piece of music, developing a keener sense of rhythm, counting, and "seeing the picture of music." Bill speaks in easy to understand analogies and gives a very picturesque representation of the concept being portrayed. Whether you are a drummer or play a non-percussive instrument there will be something for you to take away from this appearance. Bill Ray has been a studio and live drummer for over 30 years and has played on over 150 albums, including the 2007 Grammy Award-winning album by Ike Turner, Risin' With the Blues.

I am considering attending your workshop. Please contact me with further information. Thank you.
