BILL O'CONNER

Drums

I currently lead small group jazz ensembles in the Boston area after years performing in big band, rock, and pop settings. I have performed throughout the United States and have been fortunate to share the stage with talented musicians including Jon Wheatley, Mark Earley, John Turner, Yoko Miwa, Russ Gershon, and Blake Newman. I have been lucky to study with inspirational teachers including Bill Flanagan and Bob Gullotti.

As a teacher I most recently coached the Dedham High Jazz Band. Using my over 25 years of professional drumming experience I am committed to helping you reach your drumming goals.
My intention for my passionate and patient approach is to ensure focus and fun for the student. I've learned from the masters how to practice and fulfill the role of the drummer.
I look forward to sharing this with you!
