The drumming world has lost one of its truly special treasures. Jim Chapin was an inspiration to drummers around the globe. One of my earliest memories as a drum student was being introduced to Jim’s classic books by my first private drum instructor, Howie Mann. His obvious love of the instrument was profound–I don’t think I can ever remember Jim without his trusty drum pad tucked under his arm, ready to give a spur-of-the-moment drum lesson to any interested party. A one-of-a-kind human being, Jim Chapin exemplifies passion and commitment to following our dreams. shareit vidmate
