biography Bobby Deitch, author of The Drummer In You (available at www.BookLocker.com) began playing the drums at the age of eight, and studied

throughout grade school on Long Island, N.Y. There he performed with

several rock, jazz and funk bands throughout the N.Y. metropolitan area.

Upon graduation from high school, he attended Berklee College of Music

in Boston, Mass. During his years at Berklee, he attained notoriety by

drumming with Berklee’s top performing ensembles, enabling him to

perform with some of the world’s most well-known jazz musicians,

which include pianist Dave McKenna, trombonist Phil Wilson, and several

members of the Woody Herman, Buddy Rich, Lionel Hampton

and Duke Ellington orchestras.

Bobby’s musical expertise goes far beyond drumming into songwriting,

guitar, bass guitar and keyboards. His involvement in education has lead

him to work as a music teacher working in both public and private

schools as well as college. His interest in computer music technology

prompted him to found MIDI Tek, a company that was designed to

educate students about digital music technology and its impact on

popular music when it was first introduced in the early 1980s.

After attending Berklee College of Music, Bobby received his Bachelor

of Arts degree at the City University of New York, and a Master of Arts

in Teaching Music at Lehman College of the City University of New York,

where he studied composition and orchestration with the Grammy and

Oscar winning composer John Corigliano.

Bobby is also an entrepreneur, having been one of the original founders

of the TransMedia Corporation, whose product Glide (www.GlideOS.com)

is the world’s first online operating system. Glide has won global acclaim

for allowing businesses and consumers the ability to securely upload,

store and share digital media.
