Industry Accolades

Kevin has been asked to perform as an educator at drum clinics with world class drummers including  Carl Palmer (Emerson Lake and Palmer / Asia),  Andy Gangadeen (Spice Girls – Peter Gabriel – Jeff Beck) and Walfredo Ryes Jnr  (Santana – Steve Windwood) Nick D’Virgilio (Tears for Fears – Sheryl Crow).

Solent University approached Kevin to design and teach the drum course for the BAHons Popular Music Degree.  Kevin has been teaching this course since it’s inception in 2007 and has played a lead role in helping to develop the course.  Kevin has brought in many professional players to the University, giving master classes to inspire the students.  The course has recently been voted the number one Popular Music Degree course in the country by the students.  For the past two years the course has also received 100% student satisfaction, an enviable accolade.

The Drum Garden has attracted sponsorship by some of the world’s major music industry companies.  These companies include Mapex Drums, Paiste Cymbals, Remo drum heads, Protection Rackett cases and Pro Mark drum sticks, who make a special Drum Garden logo stick.  These sponsorship deals are not earned very easily and are a testament to the Drum Garden’s teaching system.

Rockschool, the country’s leading grading body approached the Drum Garden to become the only dedicated drum grading centre in Hampshire in 2009.  Since Garden Music School has been established we now hold gradings for all instruments.

Dom Famularo has earned the reputation over the last 50 years of being the world’s leading motivational drum set artist / educator. Dom is also the Global Education Ambassador for Mapex Drums. We are very proud to have his seal of approval and the support of Mapex Drums since 2004.
