The Collective School of Music and Sound Collective are excited to announce the next Collective Masters Live! For Collective Masters Live events, we bring masters of their craft to share their musical knowledge with our community through detailed performance-based interactive presentations. All Collective Masters Live events can be attended in person at 28 Broadway NYC or online via the live stream.
On February 14th, modern drumming virtuoso and alumn of The Collective, Alex Cohen, will lead a Collective Masters Live at our new Downtown facility. Previously, at the end of 2022, Alex Cohen, along with Tobias Ralph and John Longstreth, brought the Murderhands practice pad circle back to The Collective. In Cohen’s first solo Collective Masters Live, he’ll dive even deeper into how he integrates extreme polyrhythms into his playing. He’ll also demonstrate the techniques he implements to express his complex rhythmic concepts.
In addition to his role in the Murderhands three-piece, Cohen is one of the busiest drummers in New York City. He regularly performs and records in a wide variety of styles and is well known for his extreme technical capabilities in metal genres. He’s worked with Malignancy, Mac Miller, and National Geographic, to name a few and has written lessons published in Sick Drummer and Drumhead Magazines. His book Ultimate Progressive Drumming serves as foundational material for any drummer aiming to push the boundaries of technical complexity and limb independence in their technique. Stay tuned for his upcoming book release, coauthored with Ramon Montagner, titled Extreme Polyrhythm and Speed Technique.
This event is FREE for all drummers to attend.

Alex is also available for one-on-one private lessons through The Collective. Please contact Admissions to schedule your lessons, and we look forward to seeing you on February 14th.
