Front Page

Hey everybody! My name is Rich Stitzel. I've been a professional drummer since 1991. I've toured the world, played with Grammy winners, platinum sellers, and countless artists spanning many genres of music. I have endorsements with the Craviotto Drum Company, A&F Drum Company, Evans Drumheads, Vic Firth Sticks, and Moravian Percussion. I also have an affiliated relationship with Shure, Incorporated microphones. I have worked students at all levels from beginners, to college kids, to professionals. I have taught rock camps, jazz camps, workshops, and clinics all over the country. I have recently released my first book called "DrumMantra: The Foundational Series", which is a method for guiding drummers through a series of exercises intended to strengthen timing, accents, coordination, beat displacement, phrasing, and creative expression. You can find out more about that HERE. I have gathered lots of insight into the artistic side of the being a drummer, as well as the professional/business side and would love to share what I have learned with you. I would love to be in contact with you. If you would like to receive some cool things from what I have learned over the past 25 years in the business, please sign up below:
