What is TDOC:

The Drummer's Odyssey Camp is entering it's 6th year, and it is looking like it will be a huge one! All the goodness of previous camps (lots of socialising, tons of drumming, goodie bags, stacks of education) with this years three incredible tutors. Three tutors (Jost Nickel, Matty Brown, and Emily Dolan Davies) each providing their masterclasses on both days. There will be plenty of material and chances to play and learn with the tutors, and there will be opportunities throughout the sessions for questions. The groups are no more than 10 drummers to keep the sessions intimate and engaging.


  • You will get a full weekend of lessons, a sit down with all three tutors, plus a Q&A session with an industry professional. On both days you will have a masterclass session with each tutor, in a group that is limited to 10 people

  • All camp attendees will receive a free TDOC goodie bag, which consists of merchandise, the camp handbook, poster, and camp pass. There will also be raffles on both days with some incredible prizes available.

  • Saturday night will be a time for social drinks with each other and the tutors. We all eat lunch together and drink coffee throughout the camp!
