A prolific drum instructor having taught over 10,000 drum lessons, he also has an online drum school, DRUMMING4LIFE.COM where students enjoy Von’s warm and personable way of teaching through interactive video drum lessons. For drummers looking to add some personality and style to their brushes playing, Von now has the BRUSHES MASTERY COURSE. It’s an online course that helps drummers build confidence in playing brushes and learn everything from the basics to playing on the bandstand.

Von also writes an informative and entertaining blog at VONBARONDRUMMER.COM. In the blog he shares how to improve your drumming, create a successful business around playing the drums and shares tips for drummers to stay healthy.

Von is also a Jazz and American Pop singer with a broad repertoire and a tour de force scatting (vocal improvisation) ability leaving audiences spellbound by his virtuosic rhythmic and melodic vocal prowess. He has two unique vocal shows, THE VON MAN SHOW! and THE VONEA SHOW!  Both shows entertain and delight audience members at public and private events.

Lastly, Von has written a book! It’s called GIFTED-6 STEPS TO LIVE A FULFILLING LIFE! It details Von’s journey to build a business solely around drumming and shares the steps for you to do the same. Later in 2020, it will also be available in Japanese!

Von is very happy living in the Kobe area and is looking forward to many wonderful and rewarding years of performing in the Kansai music community and throughout Japan.
