Although he's dabbled in jazz, Jeremy Hummel is best known as a rock drummer. Just a few years back, he started studying jazz. "I really wanted to try to make a change in my playing. I wanted to UP my game and work on things that I don't do well." John Riley's DVD, The Master Drummer, changed Jeremy's approach to practice, technique and creativity!
In celebration of Vic Firth Company's 50th anniversary, we've spent an entire year celebrating Game-Changing Moments in drumming -- including yours! To everyone who shared a story with us this year, thank you! Drumming is a shared experience and we are all brothers and sisters! Your stories have inspired us to continue making the best sticks possible and to continue changing the game for drummers everywhere.
We received thousands of amazing stories this year. Although it was difficult to choose only one story, we're happy to announce that Joe Russomano is our grand prize winner in the Game-Changing Moments contest!Read Joe's Story
