Matt Patella – Drum Instructor {Tim Shahady Photography}

For many years I ran around with a set of drums in my car playing everywhere from tiny bars to pretty big places.  Even though I never achieved any large scale success as a drummer I’ve had the great luck of getting to meet and spend time with many of the greats, both famous and unknown.

Matt Patella is one of the greats that I have had the chance to spend time with.  He’s been a roommate, a teacher and a friend for a long time and it’s great to see that now he is starting to make some noise out in the world.
