Joel Klein

Resume’ Joel Klein Drums Education and Experience I have played drums for over 50 years and was on the road for over 10 years. I have played with all style and size bands from duos to big bands to show bands to symphonic bands. I play and teach all styles of music including Jazz, Rock, Country, dance, orchestra, and ethnic rhythms. I studied drums in New York City with Sam Ulano for many years. The method I teach is Sam Ulano’s drum method along with my own innovations. This method teaches you to be able to master the drum and drum set to play in any situation including orchestra, concert band, and marching band. I hold a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree and Master’s Degree including teachers education credits..

You do not need a drum set or snare drum to start lessons. I recommend the largest drum pad you can find (10 inches or larger) and a pair of heavy sticks (marching or metal practice sticks, which I can supply). This builds finger and wrist muscles. Beginning lessons start with an introduction to music notation and terms and basic exercises to acquaint you with proper sticking technique. Beginners start with Sam Ulano’s ABC Guide (which I supply at a minimum fee.) Books are sold at cost as you progress
