International Drum Ambassador Dom Famularo recently landed in Canada for seven clinics, in seven cities – all in seven days! The fortunate cities were Kelowna, Abbotsford and Victoria, BC; Regina, SK; Winnipeg, MB; Barrie, ON, and Moncton, NB.
Although it’s common for professional drummers to teach lessons, give drum clinics, and lead master classes – no one does it quite like Dom! Drawing inspiration from the likes of Buddy Rich and Jim Chapin, Dom is the perfect ambassador to deliver that passion and knowledge to the drum community.
Dom was also the first western drummer ever to teach in Asia, and continues to spread his inspirational message throughout the world several times each year. Dom’s incredible communications skills and ability to reach people, together with his sense of humor, gives him a special power to touch drummers everywhere he goes.
The attendance at all seven events was excellent and Dom did not disappoint – his message on drumming, music and life won him multiple standing ovations at each performance. Commented Terry Ryan, SABIAN Manager Sales & Artist Relations, Canada: “I’ve known Dom for over 15 years and I’m continually amazed by the influence Dom has over drummers everywhere. From the beginner playing on a practice pad, to the guy touring with a multi-platinum band, Dom has had an impact on them all.”
Given the overwhelming response, a 2011 Canadian clinic tour with Dom is already in the works – stay tuned!
