Michael's Prog Drum Blog is a blog about Prog Drumming. The purpose here is the discussion of drumming in Prog music, be that Prog Rock, Prog Jazz, Prog Metal, or anything else I decide is worth calling prog!

Classroom Mural 2012
This is my final dry erase mural from East Valley High School. This work was executed by students from 9th to 12th grade and it comprises multiple sources. Close reading reveals fine art references (Harunobu, Picasso), pop art (anime, Ralph Steadman, Disney), as well as clip art, found art, sketchbooks and, of course, graffiti. I have absolutely no doubt that every kid involved learned a great deal about art.
I am a Prog drummer. I have a Prog band in which I do the Prog drumming. I also teach drumming and write articles about drumming and teaching.
Oh, I'm also an artist and an art teacher as well as a music teacher and it all kind of gets mixed up sometimes so you may have to put up with stuff besides prog drumming because, after all, this is my blog and I can do whatever I want.
