I had the opportunity to study with Jim for a few years, and this had a huge impact on me, not only as a drummer but as a person. (Ask any of Jim’s past
students to hear this same thing).
He is the Yoda of drum teachers! In my time with Jim, I started to see the incredible depth that the drumset has in the tonal qualities of the drums and cymbals, the ability to leave space, and swing time pulse which is the backbone of any groove. I am always indebted to Jim for this.
