Welcome to Justus RUHRBERG's class
Born in 1965 I studied classical percussion in Cologne from 1985 to 1992 at Prof. Christoph Caskel and Prof. Wenzel Pricha. More than 2 years also private lessons at Prof. Georg Breier.
Since the late 80s I play Timpani and Percussion in several german orchstras, from 1992 on as Solo-Timpanist of the Württemberg Philharmonic Orchestra.
I was teaching the percussion sektion of some youth orchestras and I'm specially interested in changing nature drum heads on timpanis and drums.
MASTER CLASS SCHEDULE
The Timpani Master Class is one of the master classes within the World Percussion Movement, Academy 2021, which combines individual and group lectures. The program of the master class can be partly chosen by participants, soloist repertoire and also music for ensembles or orchestral excerpts, which are part of each audition. There is a huge emphasis on the technique, sound and interpretation. Participants and professor discuss various traditions and styles of playing timpani, acoustics, as well as the importance of tempering and tuning.
Besides, a large part of the masterclass will be devoted to the maintenance of the instruments, such as mounting the natural skins "tucking", replacing the felt on the sticks, and the correct approach to the method of his former teacher Georg Breier.
It could be useful, if anyone wants to put new skins on his instruments, which instrument, which size of the hoops, who cares about the new skins etc..
