Eddie DeLong has been playing and teaching drums professionally for 40 years.
He started out with doo-wop on the streets of Boston, then went straight into rock and roll with E, followed by the cool funk of JB. He got down with rhythm and blues, and got soulful with Marvin. He hit the rock scene hard, but then got hot with cool jazz. Eddie has played it all, seen it all, taught it all. He's played in every kind of venue out there from rock shows, to jazz trios, to orchestras, to formal weddings, to beach fronts, to broadway plays, to show bands, etc etc. His love for, and experience with, and knowledge of, drumming is what has made him the great drummer that he is today. Sharing his experience and knowledge with others is his greatest gift.

COMMITTED TO EXCELLENCE IN DRUMMING
Eddie's Drum Studio is a clean, attractive, cool place where Eddie teaches his students the drums. He teaches one-on-one, from beginners to advanced. His relaxed, patient style helps students feel comfortable and ready to learn. He teaches all the basics with emphasis on the rudiments. For the advanced students he gives them what they want--new techniques, independence exercises, chop builders, and more. Eddie also plays and teaches the congas and the djembe.
In his drum studio he has numerous study materials that he has collected over the years--drum books, drum videos, drum magazines, etc--all of which he has put many hours of study into. His main influences over the years were Buddy Rich and Steve Gadd. Eddie himself has studied with some of the Greats, like Joe Nevolo who has performed with Greg Howe, Mahogany Rush, & Pat Travers, and he also studied with John Horrigan at Horrigan Drum School in Boston, Ma. He continues his studies today, trying new techniques from the likes of Thomas Lang, and learning all the complicated rhythms of the Latin beats.
Over the years he's met and talked with some of the greatest drummers like Steve Gadd, Joe Morello, Jim Chapin, Peter Erskine, etc--too many to remember. His studio walls are covered with their signed picures---along with pictures of the bands Eddie has played in over the years. It's a great place to be where learning to play the drums is fun, creative, and exciting.
