Drumeo released our new workouts

Drumeo has just released two workout videos I recorded with the incredible Carl Mayotte on bass: Groove Timing and Drum Fill Timing. These workouts are designed to immerse you in our musical universe, helping you practice alongside us to identify whether you have a tendency to rush or slow down. You can repeat the workouts as many times as needed until your timing is flawless.

Show with Marcin

Full house last night with Marcin at Palais Montcalm. This event was part of his international tour, which has him coming back from Japan and Europe before heading to the United States. Thank you to everyone who came, the entire crew, and, of course, my partner in crime, Carl Mayotte.
