Gavin Harrison: Featured Clinician

Gavin Harrison is an accomplished drummer who started playing at a young age and is now a member of two British progressive bands, Porcupine Tree and King Crimson. As a young child, Harrison listened to many jazz records his father had collected. These records influenced him to start dreaming of becoming a drummer one day.

Though Harrison has been an active drummer since his early teens, his major breakthrough came in 2002 when he joined Porcupine Tree, an English progressive rock band founded by Steven Wilson in Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire, England. The group plays a mixed genre of rock that involves traditional rock, psychedelic rock, and metal.

In 2007, Harrison joined legendary progressive rock band King Crimson. Harrison is also an author of two books, “Rhythmic Illusions” and “Rhythmic Perspectives.” These books offer rich insight into methods of drumming. He has also released two instructional DVDs, “Rhythmic Visions” and “Rhythmic Horizons.”

On Saturday, September 22nd, Gavin Harrison is offering a FREE drum clinic for the first annual MWI International Drum Festival. Catch Gavin Harrison’s clinic on September 22nd at 6:30pm in the South Auditorium. To RSVP for the clinic, please email with your name, events you plan to attend and number of guests you plan to bring.
