Born in New Haven, Connecticut I grew up in a family of drummers. My Dad, Jimmie Stavris Sr was a Master Drum Instructor who taught the “ART” of drumming for nearly 40 years. In that time, nearly 2500 students walked through the door of our small home where the bottom floor served as the Drum School and Shop.
Soon after he graduated from the Hartt School of Music he met my Mom and began teaching her younger brother Nick Forte. My Uncle has gone on to become a Master Instructor, player, and author of many Drum Method Books.
My older brother Jim began his formal Drumming Instruction at the age of three and I started lessons with my Dad when I was five.... Drums is truly the Family Business!
