This allowed Rob to be apart of many projects giving him the greatest lessons a drummer/artist could learn. Working with such drummers as Kenny Aronoff, Dave Abbruzzeeze, Matt Sorrum, Charlie Drayton, Alvino Bennett, Vince Wilburn Jr, Phil Jones, Tony Thompson and many more, gave Rob a first hand look at the best in the world of drummers and drumming (which means he finally learned how to play drums). *** Lesson Details *** My course is based on fun and discovering your love for the instrument. I also teach from my book "Rolls Around the kit". Packed with roll patterns around the set mixed with basic rock grooves, Rolls introduces a drummer to rudiments behind rolls and fills, and how they apply to songs. “Rolls Around the Kit is an essential part of my teaching courses.” I also teach Neil Peart techniques and songs as a separate course. *** Studio Equipment *** DW collectors series. 12", 13" Toms. 15", 16", 18" Floor Toms. 23" kik drum, 14" edge snare.
