What the Rockstars Say About Sandy
Sandy Speaks to Everyone
From 1987, up until his move to Nashville in 2014, Sandy gave lessons and master classes, and inaugurated the Music Business program at the Drummers Collective in NYC. He is also a favored counselor at the Rock and Roll Fantasy Camps.
The time Sandy spent teaching in the classroom is what opened his eyes to the notion that, throughout his career, there were a few vital ingredients that enabled him to overcome and thrive as a performer and in his personal life. He created the acronym B.E.A.T.S which lists the set of ingredients that have kept him “beating the drums, and beating the odds” throughout the years.
Sandy began sharing his B.E.A.T.S. presentation with companies, organizations and schools across the country, such as FedEx, Belmont University, Pacific Hotel Management LLC, Sam Ash Corp., The U.S. Space and Rocket Center, The Collective NYC, The School of Rock and many others. His program has had extraordinary results energizing, motivating and inspiring those who participate.
