Kent Aberle is a first-call professional drummer from Atlanta, GA, but this latest tattoo in Kent’s rhythm career is just that – one groove in a life-long rhythm dedicated to drumming that started at the age of six.
With over thirty-years of drumming and fifteen years experience as a professional, Kent has performed every type of situation possible from the restaurant jazz gig, to the metal rock show, to playing in front of 150,000 people in China. Kent’s ability to be a groove chameleon performing all styles of music as well as his harmonizing backing vocal ability has made Kent one of the busiest drummers in the southeast and a first call for the amazing Atlanta music scene for both live performance and sessions. Performing, though, is just one aspect of Kent’s career.
With a strong belief in the power of rhythm to shape lives, Kent has become one the most sought after instructors in the Atlanta area. This aspiration to teach led to the self-release of Kent’s instructional DVD “Technique and Musicality for The Weekend Warrior” which is receiving great reviews from drummers nationwide. This same aspiration to reach out to and help other drummers also led to Kent writing a column titled “The Weekend Warrior” for DRUMHEAD Magazine since 2010. Kent also has performed numerous drum clinics that not only playing drums, but educating future professionals about what it takes to pursue a career in music.
