On September 21 and 22, 2019 the SABIAN Education Network returned to the UK Drum Show in Manchester, England, holding two separate educational discussion sessions for drum teachers, including appearances by Ray Luzier (Korn) and SABIAN President Andy Zildjian.
On Saturday morning, SEN Director Joe Bergamini moderated a panel consisting of Dom Famularo, Hugo Danin, Louis Sellers, and Andy Thurston. Each of these eminent educators shared a presentation for the assembled teachers, and then the panel took questions.
For the Sunday event, Bergamini was joined by Ray Luzier (Korn, David Lee Roth), Andy Zildjian (President of SABIAN Ltd.), and Famularo for “The State of the Drumming Industry.” In this engaging and well-attended event, the panelists took questions on wide-ranging areas of the music business.
The events were held in the Sabian/Pearl Experience Room at Manchester Central, during a very well-attended show. SEN members left the events inspired and equipped with SEN swag including new t-shirts, literature, and SEN posters for the teaching and practice room.
“This was a wonderful return to the U.K.,” said Bergamini, “Each of our panelists had compelling information to share. It is clear that Dom, Hugo, Andy and Louis are all truly dedicated to teaching. And to have access to a major industry figure like Andy Zildjian and a rock star like Ray Luzier for Q&A in an intimate setting is a truly rare opportunity for any drummer or drum teacher. SEN continues to deliver these kinds of benefits for our members.”
