Quote "Hey Brother ..!!.. still remember the time you 'went out' like Elvin Jones at Crystal Mansion Studios." Johnny Neel (Formerly with the Allman Brothers Band & vocals Walt Disney Records CD's Finding Nemo, Cars, and Ratatouille)




Quote "Jacob, you've got GREAT hands!!! ...hands from hell...!" Jim Chapin circa 2005 (20th century’s most influential drum set educator)

Quote "Jacob has a great sense of jazz, & chart reading. I was particularly impressed with the exciting playing displayed in concert with the big band video." Aldo Mazza (Kosa)

Quote "Jacob, I dig your playing, big time. You're a hellava drummer!! ... Dig your big band drumming man, lots of fire." Mike Clark circa 2014 - (Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, Tony Bennett, etc)

Quote "Very nice. Nice hands, nice energy. Nice Independent Left hand lead.“ (referring to my video) Kenwood Dennard (Sting, Dizzy Gillespie, Associate Professor of Percussion, Berklee College of Music)

Quote "Jacob is an excellent teacher, whose passion and knowledge over the last two years has taken me from basic drum concepts all the way to advanced studies in the Moeller method. His instruction provides solid fundamentals in drumming; from reading and coordinated independence to improving your "chops". It's always kept fun though with the application of these fundamentals to many different music styles such as rock, jazz, latin, or anything else you would want to try. With Jacob's instruction, along with hard work and practice, I have grown in leaps and bounds as a drummer." 2014
M. Gallaugher Ph.D.


Quote "Since I have been studying with Jacob my hand speed has doubled. My independence is more solid, and I appreciate his willingness to take me out of my comfort zone in order to build my chops, I came to Jacob for drum set but, I have also seen a huge improvement in my timpani chops as well. I feel lucky to be studying with a master." Terrence LaCroix, B. M. Northern Kentucky University (Orchestre Symphonique des Musiciens du Monde & Orchestre symphonique de l'isle)


Quote "I would like to extend my personal thanks once again for being a great drum teacher. I have learned alot in the time we have had and look forward to more sessions (after summer). Any student should consider themselves lucky to be taught by you. You have much insight and much real life experience to offer. It just shows that even after playing for 25 years myself, I can always learn more and extend and break out of my own boundaries." Blake Lemieux (2011) HolloW (Metal -Symphonic Black/ Death/ Power/ Thrash)


"Very cool! ... I like the fact that you are doing YOUR combinations... and not just transcribing what I did."
Walfredo Reyes, Jr.
(Santana, Christina Aguilera)
