Continuing in its mission to assist drum teachers, the SABIAN Education Network recently held events in Nashville, TN, and San Antonio, TX. Each event was led by SEN director Joe Bergamini and included a panel of education experts who shared information and ideas with the attendees.
The focus of these events is to provide concrete ideas for drum teachers to build and improve their teaching practices. Each event began with a presentation from Bergamini covering a wide array of issues for the teacher, followed by a detailed talk from each panelist on a topic of his own expertise. The events concluded with questions, discussion, networking and a cymbal giveaway.
The Nashville event hosted panelists including business coach and former music industry executive Rick Drumm, Drumming’s Global Ambassador Dom Famularo, international touring and recording artist Rich Redmond and well-known Nashville educator Zig Wajler.
The San Antonio event was held during PASIC, and the panel consisted of Dom Famularo, PAS Drum-set Committee Chairman Eric C. Hughes and veteran Austin-based teacher Nic Marcy.

“The SABIAN Education Network gathering at PASIC featured a fantastic panel and a great exchange of ideas amongst teachers. You can expect the same at all future events,” said SEN member and SABIAN artist/educator Jeremy Hummel. “If you are looking to improve in any area of your teaching business, these are ‘must attend’ events.”
SABIAN plans to stage more of these events in 2016, and invites drum educators to join SEN to take advantage of all the benefits of the program. SEN is open to all educators—from the private home studio teacher with a handful of students to a music school or educational institution—and provides a welcoming and inclusive forum for drum educators worldwide to exchange ideas and share skills.
