Tony Mason Holds Workshop In Trinidad And Tobago

Earlier this year, the Academy for the Performing Arts at the University of Trinidad and Tobago hosted its first music workshop, "Tony Mason – Groovemaster." Based in the UK, Tony Mason is widely regarded as one of the world's leading drummers and has performed and recorded with an eclectic mix of artists including Mary J Blige, Al Green, Joss Stone, Average White Band, Matt Bianco, Van Morrison, Aswad, Eddy Grant and many more. His "Groovemaster" Drum Clinics have consistently been voted "Best Drum Clinic" by readers of Rhythm – one of the world's top drum magazines. Sponsored by the Rhythm Method Drum School and UTT, this workshop was a prime opportunity for Tony – who is of Trinidadian parentage – to share his vast knowledge and experience.

Approximately 75 were in attendance at the workshop, among them The Honourable Peter Taylor, Minister of Legal Affairs and Member for Princes Town South/Tableland. The Minister was accompanied by several young people from his constituency. Also present was Mr. Ricky Amar of Caribbean Sound Basin ­– Mr. Amar had brought Tony Mason to Trinidad for a workshop in 1998.
