Carlos Hercules, professional session drummer who played the London 2012 Olympic Games ceremonies, drummed with Anastacia, George Michael and Liberty X came to AMS Hitchin on Friday 6th September to deliver a brilliant masterclass!
Carlos kicked off the new academic year in style by giving AMS freshers a chance to ask questions, hear how to make it in the industry and see some awe inspiring drum techniques.
“Carlos has played prestigious events such as The American music awards and the UK hall of fame, Breast cancer and Aids awareness, and various charitable events and was the first drummer to play at the New Wembley Stadium.
He has attracted articles in both Rhythm and Modern Drummer Magazine.”

Carlos gave great tips for our new students such as encouraging them to practice at least 5 hours a day, being prepared prior to gigs and performances and just being committed to what you are passionate about. He also spoke about how difficult life can be when you are always on the road but you always have the support of the ones around you. This was a fantastic occasion and we cannot thank Marcus enough for the time and effort he put in to this masterclass!
Carlos will now tour to Italy for 5 weeks before returning to England.
