Rob made his first drum in 1986, in the very early days of the hand drum phenomenon in this country. His love for percussion and people grew, and soon he was exploring every aspect of ethnic percussion. Now, he makes and sells drums, teaches, gives seminars, runs drum building workshops, and owns Primal Beat Percussion, a 20+ year old drum company, as well as Imagicka, an eclectic shop in Binghamton , NY.
It is his calling, and he gave up a job as an electrical engineer to focus on bringing percussion to the people, and feeding the growing drum circles in the U.S. The drum circle is empowering, as everyone has a place, everyone is a musician. His goal: to help break the paradigm that music, spirit, and magickal experience are for a very few, and that the rest of us are destined to be the audience.This illusion must end. Step up, participate, and get involved with the creation of your own life.
