Michael Carvin’s musical training began at age six with his father, one of the top drummers in Houston. By the age of twelve, Carvin began playing professionally and won what would be the first of five consecutive Texas rudimental championships.
Joining Freddie Hubbard’s band in 1973, Michael moved to New York where he quickly gained a reputation as one of the most formidable drummers on the jazz scene while working with Dizzy Gillespie, Dexter Gordon, Hank Jones, McCoy Tyner, Hampton Hawes, and singers Ruth Brown and Johnny Hartman.
Michael has established himself as one of the world’s most respected drum teachers and clinicians. The alumni of the Michael Carvin School of Drumming in New York are among the elite drummers in music today. firstname.lastname@example.org http://www.michaelcarvin.com
