Gospel-drumming sensation and Chicago native Calvin Rodgers has lent his talents to a who’s who of gospel artists, including Fred Hammond and Israel Houghton, as well as soul and R&B icons such as Aretha Franklin and the Isley Brothers. Needless to say, he knows a thing or two about how to bust out grooves and fills behind the kit. Join Calvin as he teaches many of the evolved techniques in gospel drumming that he employs in his playing.
