The school has recently moved to North Plainfield and we are excited and energized for the new semester in our new location!
Matt has been hard at work on a text book for the school which is almost finished. This is exciting because he has put 33 years of experience in performing and teaching into this book which starts at square one with holding the sticks and goes all the way through beginning, intermediate and advanced concepts.
The school had an amazing "Day For Drummers" performance in June, our best one yet! All the of students played GREAT with our house band of pro musicians. It was a win for all.
We had visits from some of our alumni over the summer. Joe Taurone, who is attending St. Rose in Albany to study music, took a break from his performance and touring schedule to stop by and fill us in on all his recent news. Tal Berenfeld, who is studying music at William Paterson, stopped by for some tune-up lessons. And, we saw Whisper McRae, who is teaching at Jazz House Kids and about to graduate from SUNY Purchase with her degree in music.
We are very excited for this year and to see our great young drummers make their dreams come true!
