Drum Technique

Matt Greiner lives and breathes drumming. If you want to grow as a performer and perfect your technique, then his drum workshops are for you.

Hi! My name is Matt Greiner and I play drums for August Burns Red.  I started the band in my basement in March of 2003 after playing drums for a few years on my own.  All I could think about was drums in the beginning.  I would work 50 hour weeks landscaping and would tap on the steering wheel of the mower and make up beats and rhythms in my head for new songs.  At the end of the day, I went straight to the practice space and got to work.  I've always believed that God gives us desires deep down in our hearts, deeper than we maybe even realize, and pursuing those desires with every thread of our being gives us direction and purpose.  Ultimately though, those desires lead back to God and will manifest themselves best when given back to others.  I play drums for God and for the enjoyment of others.  Those are my goals and drumming is my way of accomplishing them!






TEI Workshops are group educational experiences.  The workshops are not structured for meet and greets, autograph signings, or individual photo opportunities with Gurus.  Please be respectful of these guidelines.
