Or take the DRUMMERS APTITUDE TEST NOW, before it is too late! (Otherwise, you will be forced to endure Bill's Boring Biography page . . . :)
He began teaching the tricks of the drumming trade at the 'Musical Arts Conservatory' of Amarillo Texas in 1964 and later opened his own drum shop/studio in San Antonio, Texas, where he resided for seven years between 1966 and 1973. Over the years he has traveled extensively, playing and teaching mostly in the US. He has enjoyed many limited engagements overseas as well.
Mr. Powelson prefers teaching methods that cut through the confusion in a practical but thorough way. He contends that if the student can discover the joys of playing along with music early on, the complexities of theory and technique development will become much easier to digest. Technique and theory can be easy and fun if you understand how they apply to the music that you love.
He says, "The secret to learning is hidden in the fun factor."
The following list of US cities have been home to Bill at one time or another. He loves to receive E-mail from everyone, especially his old friends and students.
