BIMM set for Sum­mer Schools

Last call for Bris­tol cour­ses

Rhythm - - BEAT! -

What bet­ter way to spend your sum­mer than be­ing be­hind the kit and sur­rounded by like-minded mu­si­cians?

That is ex­actly how you can spend a week of the sum­mer break thanks to a pair of mini-cour­ses from ■ BIM Bris­tol.

BIM Bris­tol’s Sum­mer Schools run 24 to 28 July and ■ 31 July to 4 Au­gust. The first week is the teach­ing in­sti­tu­tion’s in­die and pop week, while the lat­ter is their rock school (with the lat­ter suit­ably spon­sored by ■ Mar­shall Am­pli­fi­ca­tion).

Which­ever one you opt for, you will get the op­por­tu­nity to record in a pro­fes­sional stu­dio and take home a CD con­tain­ing your own pro­fes­sion­ally recorded track. Plus, you will per­form on stage in front of fam­ily and friends.

Choose pop/in­die week and you will be able to pick the brains of guests such as ses­sion drum­mer ex­traor­di­naire Ge­off Dug­more, singer Eva Lazarus (DubMafia) and bass player Da­mon Minchella (The Who, Paul Weller).

Mean­while, guests dur­ing the rock course in­clude Skin­dred’s Arya Gog­gin, Tax The Heat bass player An­ton An­gotti and Cra­dle of Filth guitarist James McIl­roy. BIM tu­tors Jamie Hunt and James Hester will also be on hand ■ at both cour­ses.
