Welcome to Drummer’s Corner online drumming instruction, I’ve been a professional working drummer for 28 years; the knowledge and skills I have acquired are from my vast experiences working in all styles of music both in the studio and live performances. And my extensive studies at Berklee College of music earning my master’s degree. Drumming and music are an extension of my soul and my spirit, whether I’m performing, composing, producing and teaching. On the Drummer’s corner, there’s something for every Drummer at any level from the beginner to the seasoned working professional.
