Jim Chapin

Recommended Posts

Legendary drum teacher Jim Chapin died yesterday in Florida. He was author of the well known drumset text "Advanced Techniques for the Modern Drummer" and was an inspirational drumming figure, mentor and friend to many drummers over the past fifty years.


He was 89 years old and will be greatly missed by many former students and colleagues.
