About the Author
Dana Oliver is a professional drummer/teacher who lives in the Los Angeles area.
He has played drums for nearly twenty-five years and currently teaches at Yamaha School of Music in Cerritos, CA, in addition to his busy performance schedule.
Dana believes in the perpetual pursuit of knowledge in music, as well as in general, to improve one's life, and continues himself to study technique under the tutelage of world-renowned drum instructor and Doctor of Music Richard Wilson, also in the Los Angeles area. Dana has studied under Richard for nearly ten years now. Richard was featured in Modern Drummer magazine several years ago and has quite an impressive background and list of credentials.
Dana searched continually for several years to find resources that would encourage his students to play along with music, live or recorded. Professional recordings of pop artists seemed to leave the student behind, and therefore discouraged. This has always made playing along with recordings difficult and uninviting.
In the process of composing material for use with his own students, it became obvious that this type of educational tool would be greatly beneficial to learning drum students everywhere, hence Groovin' to the Music was born.
