Note From Founder of KMA Sam Aliano
I've always felt the need to study, take drum lessons, enroll in drum courses, attend drum seminars, drum clinics and drum workshops world-wide to gain as much knowledge about drums as possible. My studies have taken me to many extraordinary places, Australia, Asia, Europe, South America & USA. The one thing I noticed in my studies is that we've all developed different techniques, methods, mechanics, approaches etc.... but have the same goal. To groove HARD and have fun doing it.
In my 30+ years of teaching in different environments and countries, I wanted to create and develop a drumming website, studio, syllabus and foundation for any level drummer that he / she can utilize to become a great All Round Drummer. I've created 8 courses thus far, with many more to come. I also teach 1 on 1 private lessons and online lessons that are tailored lessons to suit each student. I teach all styles of music always maintaining a hands on approach to drumming and rhythm.
I've also wanted to have a studio where the student would feel comfortable and inspired to learn drums. ARD studio is fully equipped with 5 drum-kits and 3 work stations all serving a different purpose. From a video station, to pad station, to drummer / student station.
At KMA, you can record your own videos playing along to songs and or record your drum lessons.
I feel it's just as important to read music and play music. It's all about picking the right teacher that will guide you thru the journey.
