Look for Ken Marino. He s a member here- Delta drummer. Or you could go with the "Pro-fessor" Jeff Indyke. Look around here, you ll find what you re looking for.

I know Pat Petrillo teaches at Drummers Collective in New York City. I'm sure that it would be very worthwhile. It would probably be a really great place to go and hang. Lucky you! Good Luck.

Tommy Igoe if you can do it but last I heard his waiting list is months long. At the very least, go to Birdland to see his band on Friday. Unbelievable.

Thanks for the recommendation. It is an honor to be listed along with all these other great drummers/teachers. If you teach in NY like I do, you can see how steep the competition really is just by taking a look at Jeff's list. :)

There are also John Riley, Frank Bellucci, Rod Morganstern, Bobby Rondinelli.

I thought Matt Ritter lived on the west coast. I may have to check him out.:)

I really wouldn't pass up the chance to learn with Joe Morello if I were you.

He's a master technician and a jazz drumming legend in his own right, and given his current age, there isn't going to be a long window of opportunity compared to some of the drummers that you might want to see.

No problems, and good luck. Are you going to birdland tomorrow? Maybe we can catch a drink at the bar if you go. I'll be there for sure.

Not every teacher will be great for a 'one off' lesson so be careful.

Dom is great for a one off. You can book a couple of hours with him and get a lot done. I've never studied with Phil; but I would imagine he would be the same way and give you a lot of stuff to take home.

I have taken "one off" lessons with Pat Petrillo, and it was awesome. We worked on everything from hand technique to roots grooves, and cool fill concepts. He's very energetic and will give you a great work out and honest evaluation..Playing together with him was a revelation, and it helped with my feel alot.

Thank you all for the suggestions, i ve cut it down to dom, joe morello (like michael g said, given his age), phil maturano and pat petrillo, i understand that one off lessons might not work with alot of teachers so,i hope i can get my moneys worth.

I think you made great choices. I wish I were a fly on the wall. If you want to share some of what you learned, I am always ready to be a sponge.:)

Im back finally, i had a great time in new york saw 2 musicals (the lion king and chicago) both great. I took 2 lessons while i was in new york one with Pat Petrillo and one with
Marko Djordjevic, with marko we work on poly rythm concepts and odd time signature concepts wich is really fun, but hard to get your head around sometimes. With Pat we started with working on grooves from his book, really inspiring me to work on my groove and then we work on hands and learned a bit about his tab formula which is amazing, i am very glad i took classes from these teacher. Unfortunatley i didnt have enough time to go to get a lesson with morello and Dom was book all that week, but i plan to go to new york as soon as possible
