Welcome to The Collective!

Founded in 1977 as The Drummers Collective, the school was created by a small group of professional New York City drummers. The idea was to assemble a faculty of top professional players who had the professional experience and the ability and desire to teach. For the past 43 years, this original concept has been the foundation of The Drummers Collective, as well as the other divisions of The Collective.
