The Drum School is archived for current members and closed to new memberships. I am retiring and will no longer be giving private lessons,  grading quizzes or having monthly video hangs. Only current and past members will have login privileges. Before anyone asks, my health is fine. 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, and with all that has gone on in the past few years it seems a perfect time to do this.

I am honored by all the great players who came through here. To all 1,634 members, you exceeded my expectations. I am very proud of this project, and thankful for your 6+ years of support. This was a massive undertaking, and you made it worthwhile. The shop is active and my books are still available to everyone.

I added a blog for updates, and other info. I am not on social media, only this site and my YouTube channel. My wife Melonie and I have opened a bed & breakfast in Joshua Tree and are enjoying our time spent there.

Looking forward to the next chapter.
