Hi! My name is Paulomm. I am a drummer, percussionist, teaching artist and drum circle facilitator based in Brooklyn, NY and Gujarat India.
I have been playing drums for more than 20 years and studied contemporary drum set at Drummer Collective in New York City and also studied privately with Fred Klatz and other teachers in NYC. I also studied Music Production at Berklee Online, Dubspot and ProMedia in NYC. I have been studying Mridangam - South Indian traditional drum for couple of years in India.
I teach private drum set lessons in Brooklyn and NYC metropolitan area. When I am in India, I teach drum set at my seasonal drum school - Lotus Drum Studio in Vadodara City in Gujarat State. I am also a visiting drum set faculty at various music schools in Gujarat state. I also teach beginner level Mridangam in Brooklyn, NY area.
I am associated as a Teaching Artist with Brooklyn Arts Council and teach and present rhythm workshops at after-school programs and various arts and community organizations. I am also a trained facilitator of REMO's Health Rhythms - a Group drumming protocol for wellness.
If you are interested in drum set lessons, exploring application of traditional south indian rhythms to drum sets including Konnakol, conduct a participatory traditional Indian rhythm workshop at your organization or facilitate a drum circle, send me an email.
Luv, Peace and Groove!
