Joe Lovano: Symbiosis; Sinatra and More Symbiosis, with the “sprawling energy of drummer Bob Meyer… delivered complete musical statements.” --Boston Globe

Drummer Bob Meyer is “accurate and inventive.” --Los Angeles Daily Variety

“The Music benefited from the crisp drumming of Bob Meyer.” --Minneapolis Star Tribune

“Rhythmically charged… with drummer Bob Meyer.” --Lloyd Sachs, Entertainment Critic

Wayne Horvitz Trio, “How could he go wrong with a rhythm section of Michael Bisio on Bass and Bob Meyer on Drums?…I was awed by the complexities of rhythm made simple by this master of the trap set. His left hand snare technique is incredible, adding to his uncanny ability to increase intensity while maintaining a low volume level.” --Earshot Jazz (Seattle)

Mal Waldron, “Meyer added color changes with his ride cymbal. During Moore’s bass solo Meyer displayed exceptionally skillful playing, using his snare in clairvoyant unity with Waldron’s left-hand comping” --Earshot Jazz (Seattle)

Bert Wilson/Rebirth, “Drummer Bob Meyer has to be singled out for his excellent work.” --Cadence

Advanced students only.

I have been teaching for over 35 years. i cover a wide spectrum about drums and drumset from mechanics to rudiments to various styles of playing. My students range from beginner to very advanced; from very young to adults. I love teaching and work at always improving my methods with the same vigor as i work on always expanding and improving my playing and musicianship.
