When you think killer chops and explosive creativity, you think Aaron Spears. A-list of the A-list, Aaron has recorded and toured with every major pop artist from Usher to Lady Gaga and Miley Cyrus to Ariana Grande.
Member of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame as the drummer for Journey for over 30 years, Steve Smith has mastered arena rock as much as he has jazz-fusion. Along with being a top educator and clinician, Steve ranks #20 on Modern Drummer’s 2001 list of The 25 Greatest Drummers of All Time.
Since joining Parliament-Funkadelic in 1978 at 18 years old, Dennis Chambers has blended pocket playing, flawless technique, and insane groove in a way that few legends ever have. Plus he’s #15 on Modern Drummer’s 2001 list of The 25 Greatest Drummers of All Time.
You may know him as Drumeo’s Rock Drumming Masterclass coach. Or maybe as the drummer for Styx. On top of winning multiple awards (including Best Clinician and Best Rock Drummer), Todd Sucherman brings unmatched musicality and precision to the kit — and your lessons.
Terri Lyne Carrington
Grammy Award–winning drummer, producer, and educator, Terri Lyne Carrington has performed with a who’s who of jazz greats, including Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, and Stan Getz. She’s also the Zildjian Chair in Performance at Berklee’s Global Jazz Institute.
Cindy Blackman Santana
Powerful yet nuanced and always willing to push drumming to its creative boundaries, Cindy Blackman Santana has performed with top artists from Lenny Kravitz to Pharoah Sanders. She’s also the touring drummer for her husband and legendary guitarist, Carlos Santana.
The Who. Mick Jagger. Jimmy Page. Toto. Bob Dylan. Judas Priest. That’s not a Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony list. That’s Simon Phillips’ resume. But the best part? He’s your new drumming coach.
Jay Weinberg has played with artists such as Against Me! and Bruce Springsteen & The E St. Band. Since 2014, he’s kept audiences worldwide headbanging nonstop as the drummer for Slipknot.
He’s Buddy Rich reincarnated. Along with having blown up with jazz drumming videos on social media, 19-year-old Greyson Nekrutman was named one of the top-performing high-school jazz musicians by the National Association for Music Education.
Grammy nominated and endlessly passionate in performance, Aric Improta plays for Fever 333 and Night Verses. He was also voted 2019’s #1 Rock Drummer in the World by MusicRadar.com and Rhythm Magazine.
High energy and dynamic to the core, Hanah Welton’s playing spans multiple genres from rock to jazz. She also brought this killer versatility to Prince’s all-female trio backing band 3rdEyeGirl from 2012 to 2016.
Few drummers are known by their first name alone. Cobus Potgieter is one of them. Originally from South Africa, Cobus has posted top-notch drum covers on YouTube for the last 15 years — with nearly 300 million views to show for it.
Grammy Award-winning drummer, composer, producer, and educator, Larnell Lewis has played for some of today’s hottest names, including Pat Metheny, Gregory Porter, and Jacob Collier. He’s also a Professor of Music at Humber College.
If you’re one of his nearly three million YouTube subscribers, you recognize his name stylized as COOP3RDRUMM3R. Casey Cooper produces high-quality drumming content from covers and product reviews to entertainment and educational material.
Pure energy with killer chops, Matt McGuire is the drummer and Musical Director for The Chainsmokers. He’s also racked up 2 million YouTube subscribers from 9 years of covering everything from Bring Me the Horizon to Justin Bieber.
If she’s not covering “Down With the Sickness,” she’s likely warming up with paradiddles at 225 BPM. Affectionately called The Godmother of Drumming, Dorothea Taylor has taught drumming (even to drum lines) for over 40 years. And she’s still going strong.
Along with playing for top artists in Quebec, Domino Santantonio has been killing it on TikTok, YouTube, and Instagram with over 50 million views of her drum covers. She was also a finals judge for the Hit Like a Girl (HLAG) drumming contest in 2021.
Drummer for Canadian prog-metal band Third Ion and columnist for Modern Drummer, Aaron Edgar brings a masterful blend of groove and polyrhythmic madness to your lessons. He’s also the author of Progressive Drumming Essentials.
When Kaz Rodriguez isn’t touring with Josh Groban, he’s likely doing one of his worldwide clinics. He might even be writing another highly acclaimed drum-less album or writing tracks for drummers Aaron Spears, Anika Niles, and Chris Coleman.
Three-time winner of E-Drummer of the Year, Michael Shack brings pure energy and showmanship as he makes easy work of electronic dance styles on his Roland kit. From techno to dubstep, Michael does it all with the chops to back it up.
