Drumming star Kaz Rodriguez to join ICMP as tutor

We are delighted to announce that superstar drummer Kaz Rodriguez will join ICMP as part of the teaching faculty for the 2017-18 academic year.

Kaz Rodriguez is a renowned session drummer, clinician and composer. In recent years he has made fans of drumming superstars like Travis Barker, Aaron Spears, Tony Royster and Chris Coleman and become one of the most talked about drummers in the industry. 

He's worked with some of contemporary music's most exciting names and projects including Jessie Ware, Sinead Harnett, Rita Ora, Plan B, Jay Sean and Cirque De Soleil. 

Commenting, Kaz said: "I’m excited to join ICMP at a time when it’s rapidly expanding and students are keener to learn than ever.

"Whether they be a vocalist, guitarist or drummer, I’m looking forward to showing students how to innovate and use their instrument to its fullest potential."

I want to teach students how to be musical team leaders. That’s what I do when I work with bands, there’s always someone who leads, who directs to serve the music’s purpose. I want to come in and inspire students to take on these kind of roles."

Tony Harris, ICMP Dean of Studies, said:

We’re delighted to welcome Kaz to our faculty. We’ve been keenly following his music industry success and are excited about him bringing his experience as a drummer and passion for innovation to ICMP. We’re sure he’ll be a source of inspiration to students across all our disciplines." 

Kaz will be leading a drums masterclass at ICMP on 28th November with more details to be confirm.
