On March 13, the Sabian Education Network (SEN) returned to the legendary Drummers Collective in New York NY for another event aimed at drum teachers. With SEN Director Joe Bergamini moderating, Sabian artists Scott Kettner, Jeff “Lo” Davis and Micheal Czimback discussed various topics tailored to the attending educators. Attendees took notes as the panel shared views and ideas on pedagogical and business-related topics.
Each attending teacher received a pack of SEN materials, including the Educators Handbook and Curriculum guides, Sabian literature and a SEN T-shirt only available at these events. Two of the 40 attendees got extra lucky, walking away with a cymbal door prize. An 18-inch B8X Ballistic Crash and a 19-inch HHX Evolution Crash were given away to two randomly drawn attendees.
According to Bergamini, “It was great to return to The Collective, which is a familiar, homelike setting for me. It’s an honor to be part of the visiting faculty, and I am indebted to Anthony Citrinite and Tony Maggiolino for welcoming SEN with open arms ever since the program was launched. Today’s panel discussion and hang felt like a meeting of old friends mixed with a focused seminar to assist drum teachers in improving their skills. I look forward to hosting more of these events here.”
