Most of you will know about my teacher-mentor-friend relationship with the Global Ambassador of Drumming (aka Dom Famularo) who passed away September 27, 2023. Dom was passionate about teaching and education and Sabian was always at his side to help push his efforts. Organized in cooperation with the Sabian Education Network, this award is unlike anything that has ever been done before in the music industry. I am excited and honored to be part of this team of educators, business coaches, and company representatives to continue the legacy of Dom’s vision. Here’s the official info and application details from Sabian.
Besides yours truly, this is the team to evaluate and decide on who will be the lucky winner: Andy Zildjian (President of Sabian Cymbals) – Chris Stankee (Sabian Artist Relations Director) – Joe Bergamini (Sabian Education Network Director) – David Garibaldi – Jim Toscano – Stephane Chamberland – Paul Quin – Rick Drumm. O.k. – so now let’s go to work and prepare your application!
