Subjects Taught Drum
My name is Brendan and I am a jazz performance and education major at The City College of New York. I have been playing the drums and percussion for about 15 years and have a lot of experience playing with many different types of groups including orchestras, Jazz bands, Small combos, rock/funk/R&B bands and Concert bands. I have studied with some of the best drummers/educators including Joe Carozza, Adam Cruz and Nate Smith. In high school, I participated in the area all state bands and orchestras from freshman to senior year. I was accepted to the jazz program at CCNY and chose that program because of the great staff including John Patittucci, Scott Reeves, Ray Gallon and Mike Holober. I am currently a resident of Manhattan while playing in a number of different bands with styles including Funk, jazz, blues and motown. I have taught private lessons in high school as well as a music summer camp at Dutchess Community College.
