"The UDE is exactly what it says on the tin.... A wonderful week of learning from some of todays TOP players in every field of studio and live music. I feel very honoured to have been invited again this year to teach and pass along my 30 years of experience in the recording and live music world and I very much look forward to seeing old friends and making new friends during the week. If you haven't yet booked your place ... DO IT NOW !!!!...... its the UDE 2016 ...... see you there." - Geoff Dugmore


"The UDE is one of the best close-up learning experiences I have ever seen. I very much like the way the course is organised and there is a great friendly atmosphere, providing a fantastic learning experience and  above all lots of fun!" - Ralph Salmins


“Having been a part of Mike Dolbear’s UDE a couple of times, I can say that it is an amazing opportunity for drummers to learn from and hang out with some of the top performers and educators in our field.  I highly recommend signing up to anyone that is considering attending.  You’ll have an amazing experience and will learn a lot in the process.” - Stanton Moore


"UDE is a fantastic event that has literally changed my life as a musician.  The outlook I now have and the perspective i've gained from such inspirational people is greater than I could have possibly imagined." - Alec McCullie
