TEACHER SPOTLIGHT: Ron Amistadi - Percussion


TEACHER SPOTLIGHT: Ron Amistadi - Percussion

I am a graduate of Thomas Jefferson University, Philadelphia, PA with over 30 years of teaching and 40 years of playing experience. Some of the fantastic mentors that I have studied with include:
Armand Santarelli, who was a protégé of jazz great Joe Morello and who was the art and science of drumming.
Mel Brown, who was a staff drummer for the Motown Music Corporation, recording and touring with groups including the Temptations, the Supremes, and Smokey Robinson. He subsequently spent ten years working with Diana Ross among his many other recording and touring engagements.
I am currently playing in a original pop/rock band called Cinder Bridge. (
A solid foundation in the fundamentals is essential to learning any instrument well, including the drums. Allow me to help the drummer inside of you come out to play, or to help you to do what you are already doing better!
