About the Croatia Drum Camp

You couldn't put together a more amazing lineup of drummers if you tried! These are some of the baddest muthas in the business and they are coming to Groznjan to share their multiple life times of experience with you!

Participants will work daily from 9.30am till noon, and then from 4 pm - 7 pm, with one day off reserved for leisure time spent on the beaches of the beautiful Croatian coast of Istria.

The Croatian Drum Camp is held together with the international jazz festival "JAZZ IS BACK BP", which received the Best European Small Festival Award in 2008 (European Jazz Award Committee). Participants will have the opportunity to hear some amazing professional musicians live every night (when they are not jamming!).

After their final concert at the festival, we will organize a celebration event where you will receive your diploma for participation.

The academy takes place during the rehearsal session of the JM Jazz World Orchestra, so participants will have the chance to meet and jam with 21 of the world's best young jazz musicians from 17 different countries.
