"Gordon has been a staple in the Australian music/drumming scene for decades - and for good reasons! And when a player of his calibre is presenting a clinic, it's an opportunity not to be missed. This turned out to be the case as Gordo delivered a workshop which centred heavily on playing music, not just playing the drums. He discussed his approach to tunes, how 'less is more', and had plenty of stories from his real world experience - all delivered with humility & humour. There was plenty of space for audience questions which gave the workshop more of a conversational tone, rather than a dry, one-dimensional presentation & there was plenty of knowledge for drummers of all playing levels to take home. And then there was the playing - which was expectedly beautiful & musical with plenty of fire when required. All in all, it was a great insight into one of the legends of the Australian music scene beautifully curated by The Drummers' Hub. I hope to attend more of these events in the future!" ★★★★★

"The Wollongong Conservatorium was honoured to present a two hour master class with Dave Goodman. After dazzling the participants with his incredible drumming skills, he captivated us with his in depth knowledge of all things drumming. An eloquent and inspiring speaker, Goodman captivated the room full of drummers of differing abilities and backgrounds."
Eric Dunan, Head of Jazz, Wollongong Conservatorium of Music (on Dave Goodman Clinic)
"Loved the session with Gordo. He had so many great ideas, both simple and complex, that I'll incorporate into my playing. Check out one of the Drummers Hub sessions if you can!" ★★★★★
Mal Harpur, Sydney, Australia (on Gordon Rytmeister Workshop)
"Fantastic workshop, really enjoyed the questions segment of the workshop. I also enjoyed being very physically close to the artist running the clinic as well. All the other clinics I've been to have had a massive stage and a great distance from the artist to the audience and doesn't feel like you're really connecting with the artist in spotlight. Great to see a workshop with none of the glamorous lights and massive stage crews. It really helped me connect to what he was playing in higher detail and I felt it was really effective for demonstrating the vibe of the artist as well!" ★★★★★
Mark Hough, Grafton, Australia (on Gordon Rytmeister Workshop)
"As a presenter, Dave is a gifted communicator. During his Sydney Drummers Initiative presentation I found him to be well prepared and fully able to hold an audience's attention for the whole hour. His points were compelling and informative; he had an extraordinary eloquence and a very comfortable and engaging manner."
Matt Moore, Sydney Drummers Initiative (on Dave Goodman Clinic)
"This was an outstanding workshop. Mr. Dickeson's thorough preparation and warm delivery along with his clear and invaluable handout, made this one of the most informative workshops I've ever attended. The Drummer's Hub provided extra paper and pens for those who needed them - a thoughtful touch. Congratulations to all concerned!" ★★★★★
Jim Piesse, Sydney, Australia (on Andrew Dickeson Workshop)
"When I was tasked to organise a drumming event here in Canberra, it was a no brainer to ask Dave if he would be our clinician. The clinic he presented was outstanding, his enthusiasm and the depth of understanding to what he was demonstrating impressive."
Mark Sutton, Canberra Drummers Guild (on Dave Goodman Clinic)
