TAMA Artist Anika Nilles is one of today’s major drumming influencers. This October, TAMA is pleased to present Anika as she travels the U.S. on an 8-stop STAR Drums Clinic Tour. The clinics are intended to inspire fellow drummers on both a performance and educational level. Anika delivers captivating performances by locking into pre-recorded original music showcasing her distinctive, syncopated rhythmic mastery. Solo sections provide the creative space for Anika’s full expression of her technical and improvisational artistry - finely honed hand technique, linear interdependence and precise subdivisions - all which float over a deeply rooted sense of time.
Her performances are interspersed with open forum questions/answers, where attendees can engage in an open dialog about any specific drumming and/or musical topics they would like to discuss. Topics will include systematic analysis of a specific rhythm, sticking patterns and time concepts, as well as a host of other topics. Anika’s teaching style is to deconstruct these general overarching concepts into smaller, more information blocks that are accessible to drummers at all levels.
