This masterclass aims at developing the interaction between the drummer and the bassist for a whole range of different musical styles. Be it Pop, Rock, Latin or Fusion, Benoît Martiny and Marc Demuth will demonstrate how to find the tightness and groove that make bass and drums one single essential entity. Moreover, they will show you how the bass & drum rhythm section efficiently works in a song context, adapting to, supporting and enhancing the lead instruments.

About Benoît Martiny:


Benoit Martiny (drummer and composer) has been into music since he was 7. At 13, he started playing in his first metal band. Although he pursued his musical career in Jazz, studying jazz drums at the conservatory of Rotterdam, he has kept an infatuation with the heavy tunes. Thus, the Benoît Martiny Band was born in 2004, an act combining jazz, rock and metal into an ambitious fusion of genres. Currently, Benoît Martiny is teaching drums at the Echternach Music School, too.


About Marc Demuth:


4-string aficionado Marc Demuth holds diplomas in electric bass and Jazz double bass of the “Conservatoire Royal de Bruxelles”, as well as a bachelor and a master’s degree of the “Koninklijk Conservatorium of The Hague”, Holland. Ever since he has been busy all over Europe collaborating with various artists and sharing the stage with such legends as Michael Brecker, Kenny Werner, Slide Hampton and playing at festivals like the Montreux Jazz Festival (Switzerland), Brussels Jazz Marathon (Belgium) or the North Sea Jazz Festival (Netherlands). He is currently based in Luxembourg where he is leading the jazz-department of the Music School of Echternach, when he is not abroad touring with the Reis/Demuth/Wiltgen Trio.
