Chris Hanning presented clinics in Texas at Stephen F. Austin State University and Sam Houston State University.
Chris provided engaging and informative 2 hour drumset clinics/masterclasses using play-a-long and recording technology. He provided educational hand-outs with detailed practice strategies. Several students participated by performing to play-a-longs, afterward, Chris analyzed their performances through the recording technology. The response from the students was tremendous.
