As of 1/1/2021 The Drum School is closed and archived. I will no longer be giving lessons (online or in person), clinics, gigging, or touring. Only past members will have login privileges.

I started playing professionally when I was 12 years old, and have been teaching since my teens. I turn 67 this year. Considering the continued challenges from COVID, the music business itself, and my age, now seems like a good time to retire from the hustle, and focus on other things that interest me.

I am honored by all the great players who came through here. To all 1,734 members, you exceeded my expectations. I am very proud of what we accomplished here, and extremely thankful for your 7+ years of support. This was a massive undertaking, and you made it worthwhile.

I am not on social media but still have a YouTube channel. My wife and I have opened a bed & breakfast in Joshua Tree, CA and are enjoying our time spent between our Los Angeles home and the high desert. Our spot is magical. Come see for yourself.

I am looking forward to the next chapter.

I recorded this live for Drumeo a few years back. There is a lot of information here.
