Hi, I'm Pat Petrillo.  Drummer.  Educator.

...and although I have performed with numerous musical acts over the years...

  • Patti LaBelle
  • Gloria Gaynor
  • Glen Burtnik
  • Constantine Maroulis
  • Debbie Gibson
  • Broadway: "A Chorus Line", "Grease", "Footloose", "Dreamgirls"

I am MOST proud of being a Professional Drum Set Educator for 30 years. 

I've seen and been involved with many developments in drum set education...

  • I was one of the first drummers to release an instructional Drum VIDEO    ("Snare Drum Rudiments") in the 80's...
  • Released successful DVD'S with eBooks & mp 3 Play Along tracks        ("Hands, Grooves, & Fills", & "Learn to Read Rhythms, Better")
  • Taught countless drummers from around the globe via:                     Private Lessons, Master Classes, and Clinics. 

                        SO WHAT'S NEXT?

My goal with DRUM STUDIO LIVE is to create a website where drummers can learn and improve their drumming skills and drum history knowledge thru access to a series of instructional videos and lessons. For a relatively inexpensive monthly subscription fee, drummers will have TOTAL access to all the instruction we have to offer:

  • 2 - 1 hour LIVE Weekly Lessons with Pat: Taught by ability level, a structured lesson format, ending with a Q&A with Pat in the Chat Room.
  • Special Live Monthly Master Classes and Drum Events: featuring Pat, and some of the best drummers in the world who live around the New Jersey, Philly, and New York City area, including: Liberty DeVitto, Paul John Jr., Bernard Purdie, Gerry Brown, Jeff "Lo" Davis, and many more!   Plus, there will be many rhythm section classes so you can hear and see how to better your performance in a group situation.

DRUM STUDIO LIVE MEMBERS will also be given DISCOUNTED RATES for:

  • PRIVATE LESSONS with Pat via SKYPE, on a weekly regular basis, or occasional "One - Off" Lesson to supplement their studies.
  • SPECIAL DRUM CAMP rates for members wishing to attend one of Pat's 1 week intensives.

With the Groovalution DVD/Video Lesson Series, WHICH HAS ALREADY BEEN FILMED, there are over 35 historic grooves from New Orleans Second Line, to Roots Rock, to R&B/Soul beats, with some of my original variations, plus MP3 Play Alongs and pdf examples of each groove included!

In order to make ALL OF THIS HAPPEN...it takes ALOT of work....

I need to raise a MINIMUM of $5,000 to properly complete and launch the project.  The funding is needed for:

  • EDITING and MASTERING of the Groovalution Video Lessons & DVD
  • Hours of extensive Website design and programming work to create drumstudiolive.com with Secure Pay portals, streaming capability, and overall ease of access.
  • Purchase of HD cameras, lighting, etc for filming lesson and live events
  • Video monitors, computer, editing suite software to produce the lessons.

  Here's how you can help make this REALITY !

Risks and challenges

Immediately after funding, we will begin editing the DVD. Although I hope to complete by May, unforeseen scheduling conflicts could arise. However, I feel very confident in the timeline we have created to launch the Drum Studio Live website, as some of the groundwork pages are already in place.
