Rob's Performance Calendar
I've made some recent upgrades to my teaching studio that I'm excited to share. I recently outfitted my teaching set with Remo SilentStroke drum heads! These are the very same heads found on high end Roland electronic drums. They are wonderful for practicing on as they feel like real heads, produce beautiful tone AND reduce sound level by 80%! Here is a picture of my teaching set with the SilentStrokes:
I'm also very interested in field testing Zildjian's new L80 Low Volume cymbals at this year's NAMM show in January. When I field tested the SilentStrokes at the Remo booth at last year's NAMM show, they had a set of Zildjian Gen16s which were amazing but very pricey. The L80s are much more economical and geared for practicing whereas the Gen16s are geared for use with triggers.
Lastly, I was just notified that I had been included in Dom Famularo's Drum Teacher List! What a great honor! Dom is an amazing drummer, educator and motivator. His positive vibe and enthusiasm are unmatched! He is known as the Drumming's Global Ambassador! You can check out his link here:
As we enter the holiday season, I'm once again reminded about how grateful I am to be able to teach and perform for a living. I'm thankful for all the wonderful relationships I have with the companies I endorse. I have an amazing roster of students who keep me on my toes and many have become dear friends. I hope all of you have a happy holiday season and that 2016 is a year of health, happiness and prosperity for us all!
