Phil Maturano has been an active member of the music community for many years. His world wide performances bring sounds of a new generation of jazz to audiences from every walk of life.
Phil Maturano was raised in a family of musicians and was drawn to the drums at an early age. His exposure at that time to the great artists of jazz helped to develop his great passion for the music. When he was 16 he began his first serious study, with jazz drumming great - Roy Mc Curdy. Under Roy's "wing" he learned the language and art of jazz drumming. This set him on an irreversible course, towards his life long dream.
By the age of 18 Maturano was touring the United States. Touring and recording with different artists gave him the live playing experience necessary to become a professional musician. By 1986 he had 7 albums under his belt and 2 Top Forty hits.
At the age of 23 Phil Maturano graduated from the Musicians Institute - "P.I.T" - and soon after was asked to join the P.I.T. teaching staff. He taught core curriculum and private lessons there from 1987 - 1997. This gave him the opportunity to develop and teach his very innovative and well received methods "Working the Inner Clock" and "Latin Soloing for the Drumset". Phil's products are now distributed by Hal Leonard Publications and will be available at your local music store.
Phil Maturano continues to work in a wide variety of styles, doing everything from Afro-Cuban music with all of L.A.'s top session players to Punk Rock records.
