Workshop with Oli Rubow

 Oli Rubow forges a unique link between the repetitive and cool beats of German club culture and the soul of jazz and soul, giving it his own unique human touch.

May 4th 7- 9 pm @ Drumtrainer Berlin I Admission: free


The Frankfurt-based drummer Oli Rubow has loved rhythm ever since he can clap. His musical development was greatly influenced by jazz but since the end of the 1990s he has moved between various electronic styles within the DJ and club scene and, until today, he remains just as much a fan of electric beats as home-made, improvised sounds.
Alongside his long-standing cooperation with bass legend Hellmut Hattler and the lounge-music pioneers De Phazz, he has made a string of interesting guest appearances, for example with Turntablerocker,  the Fantastischen Vier, Henrik Schwarz, or Jazzanova. On 04.05, Oli will visit Berlin Drumtrainer once again, to unpack an inspiring suitcases of stylistic inspiration for the workshop participants and to explain how, with the most basic equipment and creative ideas, you can come up with a range of contemporary grooves.
So, calling all you drummers in Berlin, don’t miss this great opportunity to meet a great guy!!!

New: Drum Circle at Drum Trainer Berlin!

The Drum Circle is a rhythm-experience event in which participants from all age groups join for an intense rhythmic music experience.

Drum Circles participants play together on various percussion instruments, reacting spontaneously to the rhythms created. A group leader (facilitator) acts as a “conductor” and assists in the development of music. This is not a drum class, but rather a free and improvised interaction in a stress-free environment. No prior knowledge or experience is required.


Kick off: 05/12/2015
For children and families: 3 pm
For teenagers and adults: 5 pm
Where: Drumtrainer Berlin, Schwiebusserstraße 16, Berlin-Kreuzberg

These introductory events are free of charge.
Presented by Drumtrainer Berlin and REMO Percussion.
