Biography
I'm a session drummer with 25+ years of international recording experience, as well as a recording engineer. My studio setup rivals what you will find at a commercial facility. Many drummers are great players with basic recording capabilities. I can provide a professional performance AND a professional sound.Hi! My name is Dennis and I've been playing drums for nearly 30 years. I've been playing professionally for over 25 years. First in my home-country of The Netherlands (bands such as Within Temptation, Epica), before moving to the USA in 2004. Since moving to the US, I've toured and recorded with artists such as Bumblefoot of Guns N' Roses, Lita Ford, Dilana and Ted Poley, as well as many of the industry's leading producers (partial list below).  Over the years I've had the privilege of, and built somewhat of a name for, working with some of the world's most celebrated virtuoso guitarists (Marcel Coenen, Bumblefoot, Mike Orlando, Milan Polak, Benjamin Lechuga) although in recent years I've really enjoyed recording "pocket" pop, rock and lots of country!  I've been a recording engineer as long as I've been a drummer. From 2006 on, I've had a fully equipped multi-track studio (first in NYC, now in LA) and I've been recording drums for people all over the world.  What sets me apart from other drummers who record "at home" is the fact that I have a setup that rivals what you'd find at a commercial facility. High-end mics, preamps and outboard EQ's really do make a massive difference in achieving that pro drum sound for your music. Drums are the single hardest instrument to record, and I have nearly 30 years experience doing it!Next to recording drums, I have also been a professional drum instructor for 25 years. I've taught students of all ages, all over the world. I have given workshops and masterclasses at muic schools and conservatories in Europe, Russia and the US. Lessons can take plce via Skype, Zoom, Facetime, or in person in the Los Angeles are (not currently due to COVID-19).
