Peter Magadini

July 28th, 2009 · No Comments · Drummers

Back in 1987 I had a chance to meet Peter Magadini and have a private lesson from him. Peter was in Halifax for a drum symposium at the Halifax School Of Music. I got to check out Peters performance and it was really impressive. The next day I was to have a lesson from Peter with another student from Al Resks Drum Studio. When I got to the studio I found out the other student wasn’t coming so I got a private lesson from Peter. He sat down and played for me. I have to tell you he had a great feel. He kept it pretty simple and I just enjoyed seeing him play for a few minutes.

We then did some work out of his book called Learn To Play The Drum Set Book 2. I played some of the exercises out of the book and he gave me tips on how to get things to flow better. He wrote out some exercises for me to work on and gave me some pointers on what to work on out of his book. He checked out my playing and after the lesson we talked to Al Resk about it. Peter said I was a fast learner and my hands were OK. I found the lesson to be inspirational and really enjoyed it. Peter is a great player and author of some great drum books. He has definitely inspired a lot of drummers over the years.
