My vision is to simplify drumming for anyone who wants to bring out their creative expression



Michael Czimback has been teaching and playing professionally for 24 years, sharing his passion for music and drumming. My mission is to teach drummers easily understood techniques and material that builds a strong foundation for endless creativity. In order to put out the best information available, I share knowledge I gained from my studies at The Drummers Collective, 2 years with drum guru Gary Chaffee, and continued studies with Chris Coleman, and Dave Elitch. I currently run my own drum studio, www.thedrumfort.com, where I not only share these simplified ways of learning musical vocabulary and rhythm, but I foster a community of support by creating opportunities for students to connect with the greater drumming community. I do this by offering small group 90 minute drum pad classes bi-weekly and playing classes with my band. Besides doing my own 3 hour masterclasses I also continue to grow our community by hosting 3 hour Masterclasses with some of drumming greatest like Mike Mangini (Steve Vai,Dream Theater) and Todd Sucherman (Styx) for 6 sold out masterclasses. I play and write in my band Featherborn.com while also taking on freelance work with many top working acts in the area like Get The Led Out. My passion for my vintage drum collection also gave me the opportunity to play tributes to Neil Peart in 2020 and Phil Collins in 2022 at The Delaware Drum Show. In 2023, I was one of the featured artists presenting a Masterclasses at The Delaware Drum Show which in 2024 I produced the tribute with Bernard Purdie and oversaw the featured artists Keith Carlock ( Steely Dan, Sting) and friend Joe Bergamini! I continue to grow my own 3 hour masterclasses at Pocket Percussion in Willow Grove PA and at Sweetwater in Ft. Wayne Indiana which I will be returning to this September 19th of 2024. In my class, I covered my concepts on developing vocabulary titled the Rhythmic Evolution Library and Groove Alphabet. Evolution by definition is the gradual development of something, especially from a simple form to a more complex form. On my personal musical journey these concepts continue to grow and are endless. One thing I always try and remember is to have fun!
