Gary was able to teach me with an easy to understand and down to earth approach.
He made it fun too.
He's got a lot of experience and still plays out on a regular basis.

He's been a bandleader, sideman, produced music, session man, teacher.....and having run a drum shop knows the "sonic" side of drumming which is crucial, because having a great sound is half the battle and gives drummers the advantage.
I guess my only criticism is he's not charging enough, but that's not a bad thing
