Jules’ drumming mentors and maestros

“As the least experienced musician in the band, my teacher is particularly important to my progress and I have been lucky to have had a few lessons from my friend, the great Benny Greb in Hamburg. https://bennygreb.de. Benny’s teaching technique is very relevant to me and his patience has helped me enormously.  However badly I play now (!), I would be a lot worse without his guidance.  In terms of the drummers I admire apart from Benny, there are some great technicians alive today who are very impressive. But the maestro, Buddy Rich would be hard to beat IMO.   Having been lucky enough to see him play live twice before his untimely death, these were experiences I won’t forget.”
