Drummers of all ages, levels and styles are invited to join Thomas Lang for this exciting, multi-day music camp and educational experience. Each TLDBC camp is limited to a maximum of 25 students to offer optimal personal attention and dedicated instruction from one of the world’s top drummers. During the TLDBC, Lang leads students in three, 8-hour daily schedules of intensive, hands-on drumming for a total of 24 hours of drumming time, which is guaranteed to improve your drumming skills. Throughout the camp, students play along with Thomas on practice kits with double pedals* allowing for maximum real, hands and feet playing time.

The TLDBC also includes a VIP tour of the world-famous Drum Workshop factory!

~What gear do I need & what is provided?
For the boot camp , you will need to bring your own sticks, throne, practice kit & double pedal. Small electronic kit set ups may also be used. If you need to rent or would like to purchase a practice kit, double pedal or throne from us, we have very affordable rates.

~How do I get from the airport to the camp?
We strongly recommend contacting ROADRUNNER SHUTTLE to reserve a ride to the camp. Taxis are expensive and Uber/Lyft typically do not pick up at LAX or Burbank Airport.

~Can I still come if I’m not a musician?
Yes! Come, explore & have fun! Hollywood & the Sunset Strip are 25 minutes away and you can be on the beach in Malibu in 20 minutes! The Camarillo Outlet Malls are just 5 minutes away — and it’s only 90 minutes to Disneyland! Many of our attendees bring friends and family and make a vacation of it!

~What skill level is required to attend?
Classes and curriculum are developed to accommodate all ranges of playing. All classes are optional and open to everyone.

~Is there an age requirement?
No. Minors will be required to provide a consent form from a legal guardian. Minors who would like to attend the camp + hotel option must be accompanied by a legal guardian.

~Are meals included?
Daily American breakfast is included in your package price.

~What if I want to stay extra days?
Once you sign up, please contact to book your rooms and they will extend our special rate to you for any additional days you would like to stay.

~What about booking private lessons?
After signing up, you will receive a Student Information Sheet via email where you can request any camp equipment (DW ‘Go Anywhere’ kit/double pedal/throne).

~If I want to bring my spouse but they don’t want to attend classes, can I?
But of course! In order to bring a non-participant, you don’t need to pay a separate fee unless you need an extra hotel room. If you’re bringing the whole family, let us know and we can work with you to get you the best hotel rates!

~When is check in and when is check out?
Let us know when you’re arriving. Most people arrive after 4:00 PM the day before (November 8th) if they are staying in the hotel. But you need to be onsite and set up — ready to play by 8:00 AM on November 9th, so please plan accordingly. If you check out the morning of the last day of camp (Sunday, November 11th) the hotel will hold your luggage if you plan to leave after camp ends at 6:00 PM. If you need to leave the camp early to catch a flight, please let us know so we can make sure to get you your goody bag before you have to leave.

There is free wifi at the hotel.

Yes.
