Who Are You?

I only work with hungry, motivated people. What kind of person are you—what do you allow into your life? Some people, like me, demand the best they can get.  It’s a decision. Life is too short to waste time, too brief to have average experiences.

I offer three types of one-on-one experiences:
Music Instruction for Drummers and all instrumentalists.
Educational Instruction for all educators, regardless of subject, for those currently in education or considering entering the craft for their profession.
Career Counseling for artist professionals. We will deconstruct where you are and plan together how to get where you want to be.

Students are considered worldwide via Skype. And for those in the US, my custom-designed, sound-proofed studio in Mill Valley, California (10 minutes from the Golden Gate Bridge), is a welcoming space designed to let us both feel empowered and energized. Students and producers fly in from all over the world for sessions!

Apply using the form below to receive the Manifesto. This document will answer every question and spell out every detail of studying with me. (Note, minimum age is 15).

I specialize in not only cultivating the talents that are easily seen, but uncovering the potential that you didn’t know existed. Be everything you were meant to be. Right now.

A Testimonial…

Brendan Buckley

“When I was 16 years old, a 6’4″ looming man known as Tommy Igoe stepped into my world and ridiculed my pitiful display of, what I thought to be, a very kick-ass paradiddle.

At that critical age, this same man tried his best to steer me out of the depths of pubescent mediocrity, and to teach me, through both encouragement and example, to strive toward a greater goal of excellence. He taught using principles and mechanics; sweat and knowledge.

And now, as I gaze back through the past 15 years, it warms me immensely to see how his lessons and philosophies influenced so many aspects of my life, both on and off the drums. Thank you Tommy.”
