A highly respected educator, juggling a busy touring schedule with his duties as Professor of Jazz Drums at the Juilliard School of Music and NYU in New York, and giving private tuition and masterclasses all over the world, Billy has taught some of the current generation’s best young drummers. “One of the things I love about teaching is having that one student who really gets it and to see yourself in them,” says Drummond. “I also learn so much about myself from teaching others, not just from a musician standpoint but who I am as a person.”
