Paul Galiszewski has been a drummer/percussionist since the age of 6. He began his musical training in elementary school by joining the school concert band and continued throughout the rest of his school career up through high school graduation. During high school, Paul began to focus on his future career with much more training by increasing his study to include, Music Theory, Concert Band, Jazz, Band, and Marching Band. Paul was fortunate to be included in an extremely talented group of drummers with his high school marching band drum line, earning his school the top drum line in all competitions they performed throughout his entire high school career. At this time, Paul also enlisted a private drum instructor, where he studied rudiment training, drum set, percussion and a primary focus on Jazz. Upon graduation, Paul enrolled in college as a communications major and a minor in music. At this time he also become the co-founding member of the New Jersey rock band, China White, which they had performed all throughout the East Coast and recorded two albums with the Apex Records label. The band went on to tour with numerous national acts and local acts. During this time the Cappella Drumstick Company had endorsed him as part of their endorsee artist’s roster. Although Paul was having success as a professional drummer, he wanted to get back to his craft and enrolled with renowned drummer, Pat Petrillo for additional private instruction. While with Pat, Paul expanded his musical education by completing courses such as World Rhythms, Jazz, Funk/R&B, Studio Session, and Rock/Pop in which he graduated all courses of study at the Sam Ash Music Institute. After his career with China White, Paul continued his study and went on to become one of the top instructors at Sam Ash Music Institute and the Groove Academy, while also becoming a studio musician, and session player for many local and national artists. When Cappella Drumstick Company was sold off, Paul sought a new company to work with and became an endorsee of the Vic Firth Drumstick Company and part of the Vic Firth Education team. Today, Paul is still with Vic Firth, teaches drum lessons, performs with several local artists, and is currently touring and recording as the drummer for international pop artist, Josh Zuckerman. Paul also performs ocassional shows with American Idol contestants Devyn Rush and Andrez "Zee" Fredricks. Paul is working on a drum instructional book and video at the moment entitled Basics to Creativity with clinics throughout 2013. He is also in the studio completing another album with The Josh Zuckerman Band, and the next MTV music video will be completed by Early summer of 2013. He is also recording with the Random Hubiak band, The Peter Irwin Band, and singer/songwriter Gina Leigh, while still working closely with Pat Petrillo at his new music school Music Tech and online drum lessons at Drum Studio Live.
