ABOUT US

HOW WE STARTED

OUR STORY

AboutDrumming.com was created by Daniel Wachtel who first started drumming as a teenager 20 years ago and hasn’t stopped tapping since.

Apart from drumming Daniel loves building websites so when those two passions combined this website was born.

AboutDrumming.com is a platform for drummers to write and get their ideas out there, and in the process help other drummers get their questions answered.

Daniel Wachtel

Daniel started drumming as a teenager after realizing just how fun air drumming is. He was blown away by the power of the drums at his first drum lesson and hasn’t looked back since.

He has almost 20 years experience drumming and was heavily into Metal when he first started playing but has since transitioned to Jazz, Funk and Progressive Rock.

Daniel created AboutDrumming.com in 2021.

Kell Hallman

Kell graduated from the Institute of Contemporary Music Performance with a 1st Class BMus Degree in Popular Music Performance on Drums where he was fortunate enough to study under some fantastic players, tutors, and writers, including Gabor Dornyei, Darren Ashford, and Richard Spaven.

He brings an excellent technical understanding of drumming in addition to a deep peripheral knowledge of the world that it inhabits: gigs, touring, recording, teaching, and the world of contemporary music as a whole.
