Playing music gives me the chance to meet new people, work with many great musicians, and see a lot of cool places along the way.  Here are few pictures from my musical journey.

Drum Lessons

drum lessons - Tido Holtkamp

Teaching drums gives me the chance to share the gift of music with my students and to pass along what I have learned about the great tradition of drumming.  My teaching goals are to make lessons fun, inspire my students, and to see them improve their abilities and have success playing music.  For more information on private drum lessons, click the link below:


My blog page is where I like to write about music, philosophy and life.  Here, you can read my musings on my favorite music, the state of the music business, music education, and my thoughts on important drummers and drumming history.  I also host an ongoing discussion on drumming & health called "Drumming in Harmony."
