The Rhythm eXperience Premiers In Texas

This past Saturday The X Academy brought our brand new clinic program The Rhythm eXperience to the Dallas / Forth Worth area for the first time. It was a day full of talent and world-class instruction that saw one hundred students from all over Texas and Oklahoma attend! The event was hosted by Burleson Centennial High School who helped provide facilities, instruments, and even lunch provided at a discount by the band boosters. A special thanks to nearby Burleson High School who lent a beautiful set of Pearl Drums for use at the event.

THE EXPERIENCE OF WORLD-CLASS INSTRUCTION

The X Academy brought some of the activity's most active instructors together, bringing world-class teaching experience from Rhythm X, The Bluecoats, The Cavaliers, Carolina Crown, The Crossmen, Spirit of Atlanta, and more. Instructors included Joey Depperschmidt, Chris Koenig, Chelsea Levine, Adam Norris, Dan Schack, and Dr. Lane Summerlin. Participants spent time with each instructor in sub sectionals, and even a full battery ensemble. The battery performers spent one hour in visual learning dance and movement fundamentals amongst other things.

At Rhythm X, Inc. we’re committed to bringing more and more quality educational events to The X Academy. I’m thrilled and grateful we had such a great turnout and incredible event this weekend!
— Mike Scott, CEO - Rhythm X, Inc.

The event in Texas was the first of it's kind and Rhythm X, Inc. is thrilled with the inaugural event. "At Rhythm X, Inc. we're committed to bringing more and more quality educational events to The X Academy," said Mike Scott - CEO, "I'm thrilled and grateful we had such a great turnout and incredible event this weekend!"  

Thank you to all of the students that came to the clinic, we look forward to seeing you soon! If you're in the midwest, come to the second Rhythm eXperience camp at Bellbrook High School on Sunday, September 18th! You can register here.
