Drummer for Petty Theft


I’ve been playing for 20 years. I just started working with Tracy, but immediately I’m seeing benefits. Tracy is professional, kind, a good listener, and a great drummer with the ability to assess what he needs to teach in order for me my reachmy goals. He’s helped me immensely.

I’ve been playing drums for about thirty years and my only regret is that I didn’t find Tracy sooner. I can finally relax and feel confident playing at gigs behind my drums with technique. He is inspiring as a teacher, patient and an excellent drummer himself. I highly reccomend Tracy”

“Next Level!”

“Tracy’s drumming is Swiss Watch-accurate!   I have been playing the drums for more than forty years, and still have so much to learn. Recently toured Germany with the Milagro Latin Band. Thanks to Tracy, my latin grooves are more solid and efficient.
