ABOUT THE CLINIC: Stanton Moore presents Learning Through Teaching
Stanton will discuss how he has developed as a player and educator through his teaching over the last few years. He will demonstrate some concepts and ideas he has developed recently based off of some of the material some of his students have shared with him. Some of the students’ variations on ideas Stanton has presented in the past, have opened up pathways to new ideas and sparked his own creativity. He has also received many questions in his master classes, camps and his online drum academy forum that have led him to write multiple worksheets, lessons and articles through digging deeper into these specific drumming topics. Stanton will discuss these topics as well as what he has learned about maximizing and economizing the learning process and some of the newer learning and teaching concepts that he has been developing.
