Derek Roddy – Drum Clinic
Jul 18 2014
Some that play drums focus on speed, some on fills or solos. At the heart of a true musician there is: a drive to better oneself, the will to control your playing and eagerness to explore and sometimes expand the boundaries in music. In a world full of new bands and drummers popping up every day there are only a handful that stand at the top, apart from the flock.
These top musicians vary from genre to genre, at least at first glance. In reality the sign of a great musician and
not just a ‘player’ is the ability to progress, adapt, innovate and explore as many avenues as possible to express their message and as such while some great musicians are well known and at the top of a certain genre they also delve into other styles of music and actively listen to the nuances and more often then not they incorporate something of that differing style into their performance, no matter how small the contribution may be. This is the case with Derek. Having had an interest in music from an early age Derek came to first be a fan of music before heading headstrong into the world of being a musician. While capable of playing many instruments and styles, Derek is most widely known as a phenomenal drummer in the Death Metal community having performed with such bands as: Hate Eternal, Malevolent Creation, Nile, Divine Empire, Aurora Borealis and Council Of The Fallen. This is, however not the extent of his talent. Derek is an avid drummer of any style and has performed as a strictly Jazz, Blues, Rock and nearly anything else musician.
