All drum and percussion students from Years 4 to 12 were invited to attend a Master Class with Mr Mark Charters on Tuesday 2 August.
Mr Charters is an incredibly talented professional musician. He is currently in Adelaide playing for the Disney production of Frozen. He is very much in demand and has toured the globe with other music theatre productions and well-known artists including Anthony Warlow, Tina Arena, Petula Clarke, Todd McKenny, James Morrison, Jon English, Rhonda Burchmore, Marina Prior, QSO, Deni Hines, Troy Cassadaley, Julie Anthony, Doug Parkinson and David Cambell.
Mr Charters spoke to the boys about his career as a professional musician and covered concepts such as time keeping, offset patterns, rudiments, the importance of regular practice and playing in a stylistically appropriate manner.
The boys were amazed at his proficiency, skill and musical clarity as he played.
Many thanks to Mark for visiting us at St Peter’s College.
