Tom was born in the south of Germany (mid-eighties) and still lives in the south of Munich at the German- Austrian border.
He is on the road as one of the special live and studio drummers - influenced by song-friendly and solid beats. Consistently modern drumming, at the right moment always with the necessary emphasis to stay in remembrance for a long time. With his many years on stage and in recording experience and the numerous professional education and trainings in New York City, Tom offers the maximum scrupulousness and safety behind the drums for your live shows and studio sessions. His specialization is mainly in the styles of pop, rock, country and more.
Tom successfully completed his full-time (performance) scholarship in the summer of 2018 with the primary focus on 'New Musical Concepts' at the prestigious Drummers Collective (The Collective School of Music) in Manhattan, New York City. In New York City he played on jam sessions in various clubs and was also active as a Drumtech for drummers in New York City. Details on the course content of his studies, see below.
Since September 2018, Tom has been taking part in the further degree program 'Music Management for New Music Economy & Industries' at the University of Music and Performing Arts in Vienna as well as at the University of Applied Sciences Kufstein in Austria and completed this successfully in February 2019.
With these courses and further education, Tom underpins his professional independence in the music and entertainment business.
Since 2004 Tom takes part in countless workshops of the drummer world elite, took lessons in various drum schools and private lessons - until today to constantly evolve, shape and find himself. Through a special intensive coaching Tom achieved an unprecedented openness, even freedom on the drumset also through partial open-handed playing.
The success of different projects (bands/singer-songwriter acts) in southern Germany are not only due to Tom's intensive involvement, but is ascribable to the great collaboration with his colleagues of these respective acts. He currently also focusses on film scoring and how story-telling can influence him playing drums. Tom is available for intensive drummer and music business lessons on request since summer 2018 - in-person or via Skype.
