ICMP Bass And Drums Masterclass With Stu Hamm And Ralph Salmins

ICMP Bass And Drums Masterclass With Stu Hamm And Ralph Salmins


LONDON, UK (Top40 Charts) The Institute of Contemporary Music Performance (ICMP) is delighted to announce an exclusive bass and drums masterclass with music industry legends Stuart Hamm and Ralph Salmins.

Stuart Hamm has firmly established himself as one of the most influential electric bassists of the past half-century. He has done so through both his innovative work as a solo artist and his contributions as a sideman to Joe Satriani and Steve Vai. Extending the non-traditional function of the electric bass previously revolutionised by Jaco Pastorius and Stanley Clarke in the 1970s, Hamm helped to reshape the contemporary concept of the bass guitar as an unaccompanied instrument with the utilization of polyphonic, two-handed tapping, slapping and popping techniques, chords, and harmonics.

Ralph Salmins is the drummer of choice for producers and composers worldwide. He has performed or recorded with some of the world's finest musicians and artists, including Paul McCartney, George Martin, Elton John, Madonna, James Brown, Tom Jones, Mike Oldfield, Quincy Jones, Diana Ross, Paloma Faith, Jeff Beck, Alice Cooper and Wynton Marsalis. Ralph's key chart hits include Bjork's 'It's Oh So Quiet' and Robbie Williams' multi-platinum 'Swing When You're Winning' album and DVD. He has also worked with some of the greatest movie composers including Hans Zimmer, John Williams and Howard Shore, and played on the soundtracks to over 150 movies, including Bridget Jones's Diary, Harry Potter And The Prisoner of Azkaban, Prometheus and BAFTA Award and Oscar-winning movies Gosford Park, Moulin Rouge and Lord Of The Rings: Return Of The King.

This masterclass will be delivered to current and aspiring degree student at ICMP's fantastic London campus and is a great opportunity to get up close and personal with two of the music industry's finest practitioners, and is open to all.
