Get to know Paul Simonetti

I love music, all kinds! For a drummer/percussionist, that creates all kinds of opportunities, from tapping rhythms with pencils on a schoolbook, to a crescendo roll on tympani in the orchestra. I have extensive training in orchestral percussion, Dance (Big) Band, Latin beats, pop and rock, and many years playing drums with one of the NY Tri-State areas most popular wedding/club bands.


While I still work on musical projects with former colleagues, I teach now at Music & Arts in Olney. Since there really is nothing like banging the skins in a band, why not try. I’d love to help.
