Why study with Phil Maturano?

There are very few drummers out there with the teaching credentials Phil has. A massive worldwide clinic background and staff positions at some of the most prestigious drum schools in the world makes Phil one of the most complete, qualified and innovative instructors there is. His methods used as core curriculum in many drum schools and universities are cutting edge, designed with the most efficient methods of learning and absorption. He is also a published author with Hal Leonard and Hudson music.  –

“Teaching is an art in itself. The canvas is another human being that is wanting to take the journey in music. My main philosophy about teaching is that you need to be a player as well. You can’t teach well without experience in application. Playing experience is a must in order to communicate information that works!” and Phil has been an active player on the scene internationally for many years. As a side man and as a leader.


About Phil

At the age of 23 he graduated from the Musicians Institute – “P.I.T” –  with top honors and soon after was asked to join the P.I.T. teaching staff. He taught core curriculum and private lessons there from 1987 – 1997. Because of his versatility he eventually became the on call-instructor for almost all of the program at P.I.T. – From Big Band to Latin, Ensemble technique, Jazz, Applied sight reading, Fusion and Contemporary drumming and more. This gave him the opportunity to develop and teach his very innovative and well received methods for MI Press – (Hal Leonard)  “Working the Inner Clock” and “Latin Soloing for the Drumset” – After moving to New York his touring and clinic schedule turned towards Europe where he taught at Drummers Institute in Germany for 4 years. (Sister school of Drummers Collective in New York) During this time he became a staff writer Drums and Percussion Magazine in Germany. Also Drum Magazine in the UK and has articles featured in Modern Drummer (USA), Sticks (DE) And Bateristas al Sur (South America). He followed up his writing and production of instructional material with his DVD distributed by Hudson Music “Afro Cuban Drumming for the Drumset” – Voted “Must have” instructional DVD for Cuban music by Modern Drummer magazine. Drawing best Latin instructional DVD reviews by drum mags worldwide. Eventually New York called again and Phil was at Drummers Collective and taught there for an additional 3 years. During this time he developed more material for Hudson music on video.  And all of this experience merged with the technology of today makes this wonderful resource for learning. The Online lessons website which we now have here.
