We'll meet at my super cool music studio in the uber-hip, historic, neighborhood of Gowanus, Brooklyn, a 15 minute subway ride from downtown Manhattan. You'll immediately feel the excitement as we step inside the factory-turned-underground rock and roll jam space mecca! The studio is safe, video-monitored, 24/7, air conditioned and equipped with all the top-of-the-line drumming and percussion gear one could as for; drum sets, congas, shakers, etc. Guests can also bring their own instruments and plug in through the PA system. Every music experience is unique and we'll create a session depending on skill level. Absolute beginners are totally welcome as well as skilled 'rhythmatists' looking to learn something new or cut loose on a groove. Sessions are 90 minutes and include a mix of instruction and practice time. One-on-one, couples, families and groups (up to 5) are encouraged to get involved because everybody can jam! Guest lessons and jam sessions can also be recorded on pro-quality Pro-Tools recording software for an added cost. Guests will get a pair of sticks, recording and touring tips at no extra cost! There's never been a better to time to learn. Let's go!!
Once I started playing music, my world exploded with excitement. I've been obsessed with sounds my whole life since moving to NYC in the crazy 80's! After years of hard work, I achieved all my rock and roll dreams; getting signed, selling millions of albums, touring the world, playing at the infamous CBGB and also performing at Live 8 in London for 200,000 fans! I was an original member of the Grammy-nominated Scissor Sisters and recipient of 3 Brit Awards. Sharing my musical experience is a gift. I know the passion of wanting to play; I'm mainly self-taught on the kit and started drumming as a high school student. Having studied rhythms in Africa, Cuba and Brazil has helped shape my sound and given me a unique understanding of the various learning processes. I've mastered the DIY approach to learning; jump in, relax and have fun!
Each person gets a brand new set of drum sticks to use for their session!
You will be jamming in a private music studio and spend your time in a professional rehearsal space with top of the line gear.
