Defining A Worship Drummer
Keith Banks has ministered and recorded with Marco Barrientos, Klaus Kluen, David Luckey, Eddie Coronado, and more…along with teaching drums at Christ For the Nations in Dallas and presenting workshops at worship conferences in Asia, Latin American, and the US. Keith’s DVD, Defining AWorship Drummer is packed with over two hours of teaching (and some fine drumming). Whether you are a percussionist or drumset player, there is plenty of valuable information on this disc. Keith speaks about matters of the heart and head rather that sticks and heads as he discusses the attitude of a worship musician. Head over to his website (http://www.keithbanksmusic.com/), check out a sample, and treat yourself to some fine teaching and music. I’m glad to have this DVD in my library.
From the early days of his career as Artist in Residence at Coastal Carolina Community College to his present day work as a percussion soloist, clinician, sideman, and entrepreneur, Mark Shelton has created programs and educational services for a variety of ages.
