Prior Student Testimonials

The laid back vibe was very welcoming and helpful.
Alex D.

Don’t consider. Just do it!!! How else can you get multiple great teachers to work with at once for that amount of time and for that amount of $$?
Larry R.

An excellent class, thank you! I may not be able to make it every month, however I am signed up for the next one!
David W.

You cant get this anywhere else, it’s not like going to music school, it’s more than than just a private lesson and the methods really work, it’s money very well invested.
Santiago R.

Students in the class are from various backgrounds with various skill levels. This is a class that will help students of all levels.

About the Series

Legendary drummer Billy Cobham is opening his musical world up in a first-of-its-kind exclusive Masterclass series. In a series of 3 three-hour classes, Cobham and a group of hand-picked guests will teach the art of playing “simply but effectively.” Cobham and his guests will explore how to be the pulse, creating a foundation to support your fellow musicians while injecting your musical history and unique voice into your performance.

These masterclasses will include a Q&A session, giving participants a chance to personally interact with some of the greatest drummers in the world.

Drumless Play-Alongs

Each class includes a download of a Billy Cobham original composition, drumless play-along, and PDF transcription.

Meet Your Instructors

Billy Cobham
Dennis Chambers
Gary Husband
Will Calhoun
Dom Famularo

Widely acknowledged as the greatest fusion drummer of all time, Cobham came to prominence in the late ’60s and early ’70s playing on seminal recordings by Miles Davis and then the Mahavishnu Orchestra. A prolific band leader with more than 30 albums under his name, Cobham’s influence stretches well beyond the world of jazz. Billy Cobham’s Guide To Stress Free Drumming is the culmination of his life’s work.

Dennis Chambers is a legendary, well respected American drummer who has recorded and performed with artists such as Santana, Steely Dan, and Parliament/Funkadelic. Dennis is mostly known for his ability to perform with impeccable and funky timing in whatever style he’s called upon to play, as well as his incredible, fast chops.

Gary Husband is one of a rare breed of musicians in that his expression is divided equally in his capacity as a drummer and a keyboardist of international repute. His classical roots, his quest and development in the improvisational, jazz and jazz/fusion areas – not to mention his tenure in the pop, rock, funk and blues circuits – are all evident inside Gary’s distinct and far- reaching musical personality.

Will Calhoun is a widely acclaimed drummer and recipient of the prestigious Buddy Rich Jazz Masters Award for outstanding performance by a drummer, and Best New Drummer by Modern Drummer Magazine’s Readers Poll. His unique blend of improvisational and hard rock drumming can be found on each of Living Colour’s four Epic releases.

Dom Famularo has been traveling the globe preaching the gospel of drumming for over 40 years. Dom’s career has been built upon his unique skills as a drummer, educator, author and motivational speaker.
