Montreal, September 09, 2015 – Internationally regarded drum and percussion artist Aldo Mazza, just returned from a very successful trip to China where he had the incredible opportunity to teach and perform in front of six hundred eager Chinese drum enthusiasts alongside an international faculty – all this on a cruiseship! This was the sixth edition of the well-established annual event produced in collaboration with China’s reputable 9 Beats Music Education Schools, a nation wide effort consisting of an astonishing  400 school locations throughout China. Mazza is the Founder and Artistic Director of KoSA Music, along with his wife Dr. Jolán Kovács.  KoSA Music has a 20 year successful track record of producing high-level music camps, workshops and festivals worldwide and the China event is one that Mazza always looks forward to and is proud to see grow each year by leaps and bounds!

The 2015 event kicked off by leaving the port city of Tianjin, China on a luxury cruise ship and heading straight to Japan.   Throughout the week, drumset classes were given on the ship to school-aged participants alongside the watchful eye and help of their parents.   An important ingredient to the success of the 9-Beats School System is the very important teacher training seminars.   These lucky teachers were taught by this year’s stellar faculty:  Rick Latham (U.S), Pete Lockett (U.K), Izumi Koga (Japan), Dom Famularo (U.S), Chris Trzcinski (U.S), Nicholas McBride (Australia) Sam Debell (U.K) An Yu “Ryan” (China), Han Bingchen (China), and Canadian drummer Aldo Mazza.

Plans are already underway for next year’s event in China (August 2014) with a possibly bigger collaboration with the reputable 9 Beats school directed by Mr. Li Hongyu.
