Biography

Thomas Bittner, born in 1966, has been a professional drum instructor since 2003; teaching at addresses such as the renowned Drummer’s Focus school in Munich. After 20 years he reached a point in his musical development where he was simply treading water, so accepted the challenge to re-build his drum set for left-handers and re-learn. The rapid improvements he made as a result led him quickly into the world of professional drumming.
