The Drum School is closed and archived. I will no longer be giving private lessons, grading quizzes, video hangs, clinics, gigging, or touring. Only past members will have login privileges. I’ve been working professionally in music since I was 12 years old, and teaching drum set since I was in my early 20s. I turned 66 this year. Considering the continued fallout from COVID (and my age) now seems a perfect time to retire and do other things that interest me.

I am honored by all the great players who came through here. So many of you didn’t need my tutelage, but insisted on supporting this project. To all 1,734 members, you exceeded my expectations. I am very proud of what was accomplished here, and thankful for your 6+ years of support. This was a massive undertaking, and you made it worthwhile.

The shop is active, and many of my books are for sale as downloadable PDFs. Members have had free access for the past 6 years, and will still find them on your account page under ‘Downloads’.

I am not on social media. My YouTube channel is still active. My wife and I have opened a bed & breakfast in Joshua Tree, CA and enjoy spending time between our Los Angeles home and the high desert.

I’m looking forward to the next chapter.
