Rob Robinson

"Rudimental Drumming" 

    ______________________________________________________________

 

 Rob Robinson is one of the most well known rudimental snare drumming figures in the world. His name is synonymous with drum corps from the late nineteen-seventies up through his retirement in 2004. Rob's resume is certainly one of a kind. He was the first 3-time DCI snare drumming champion in the history

of the activity. His passion for solo snare drumming gained him much notoriety from the drum corps community, educators and fans across the United States and Europe. His marching percussion charts for DCA drum corps, including the Reading Buccaneers, New Jersey Bushwackers and Hawthorne Caballeros, were among some of the most cutting edge and memorable throughout the nineteen-eighties and nineties. He produced several championship percussion sections and a string of runner-up placements over the course of a thirteen year career in DCA. His years of service to the activity were recognized in 2007 when he was inducted into the World Drum Corps Hall of Fame. Rob is also a member of the Crossmen Hall of Fame as well as the Reading Buccaneer Hall of Fame. In 2012 Rob came out of rudimental drumming retirement and won the 2012 DCA solo snare drumming competition. He is a proud endorsee of Ludwig Drums and a member of the Vic Firth educational team. Today Rob is and active clinician and private teacher.
