The Drummer Program

tom-tom hi-hat

The ROB THE DRUMMER program is about changing the way you feel through the arts and sports. ROB THE DRUMMER is a children’s character created to communicate self-esteem building concepts through the primal, non-verbal vehicle of the drums.


CONCERT PRESENTATION: The structure of this musical, educational program and performance is designed to connect audiences, creating strong rapport and trust. At the core of his presentation, Rob delivers inspiring concepts of self-reliance and goal oriented thinking.

He stresses equality of the sexes, stresses the importance of practice in anything you do and then attacks the drug issue with plain talk in a “non-preaching” manner. His unique deliverance allows people to FEEL, not just passively listen. Audiences experience a wide range of POSITIVE EMOTIONS for immediate, as well as long term impact!

Rob Gottfried is an accomplished international musician who teaches drums and performs professionally. Kids and adults will actually play the drums, participate on stage, EXPERIENCE the musical moment and FEEL his message!

Rob demonstrates midi controllers, drumming techniques and drum computers. The culminating event is often a dynamic ten minute SOLO of the Most Famous Drum Solos in History!
