Mike Mangini has successfully applied his “Rhythm Knowledge” learning method to all styles of music, from classical and jazz to speed metal. He has consistently developed both the melodic and rhythmic sides of his musical personality. He has documented his command of these styles on recordings, with internationally renown and multi-platinum selling bands, as a multi-time Grammy nominee, as the featured clinician at most every drum festival in the world, and as a full-time faculty member at Berklee College of Music. Mike's latest achievement was his successful audition to become the new, official drummer for progressive-metal’s reigning kings, Dream Theater. Among his numerous awards are the Official Multi Category World’s Fastest Drummer and Boston's Best Drummer/Rhythm Section. He also appears annually in Drum! Magazine reader’s polls.
