with Chester Thompson
Drum Workshop (Time: TBA)
From Jazz (Weather Report), to Rock (Frank Zappa
and the Mothers), to Pop (Genesis/Phil Collins)
to Gospel (Ron Kenoly), Chester Thompson has
surpassed the boundaries of musical genres.
Chester's performance and recording experiences
have influenced over three decades of music
and musicians. Whether he is playing drum kit
or percussion, Chester's masterful subtleties
and unyielding time create the firm musical
foundation for any musical genre. Every time
Chester plays he gives 110% - there is no such
thing as practice. Every time he plays, it's
all about worship. To learn more about Chester
and his music, visit, www.chesterthompson.com
with Robert Sterling
Song Writing Workshop
Robert Sterling has managed to make a living
of one sort or another for the past three decades

avoiding both fame and fortune. Blessed with
a face made for radio and a talent level officially
gauged as "slightly above average,"
Robert is convinced if he can stick with music
for another ten years, he will finally get it
right. If you're looking for his formal bio,
