Tommy has been playing drums for 4 years, and has been studying with our top teacher, Larry Paoletta for two years. When local up-and-coming rock band The Magma Project gave Tommy a call looking for a new drummer, he knew his dedication to the art of drumming was about to pay off. Larry had prepared him for this kind of event. Tommy was undaunted working up the very difficult “Black Dog” -- yes THE “Black Dog” by Zeppelin – for the audition. Still, he put in the work to play with authority. Confidence, ability and work all paid off. Tommy got the gig! He cites John Bonham, Matt Sorum, and of course Larry Paoletta as his major influences. Join us in congratulating Tommy for a landing a great gig!
