About the Author:

Rich Lackowski is the author of the award-winning series of On the Beaten Path music instruction books. The first book in the series, On the Beaten Path: The Drummer's Guide to Musical Styles and the Legends Who Defined Them (2007) is highly acclaimed by teachers, students, and drumming enthusiasts alike, and has earned Lackowski accolades from around the world. The book was voted No. 1 Educational Book in Modern Drummer's 2008 Reader's Poll, and voted No. 1 Book in DRUM! magazine's 2008 Reader's Poll. Drumscene magazine (Australia) called it "the future groove and reference bible for a huge part of the modern drum set." Drummerworld.com (Switzerland) called it "the best book I've seen a masterpiece." MikeDolbear.com (UK) called it "a must for any serious drummer." Drumheads!! Schlagzeugmagazin (Germany) called it "An extraordinary book." Percussioni magazine (Italy) called it "A great method for students who want to teach themselves, and for teachers looking for materials to help them expose students to a variety of drumming styles." Bob Gatzen (USA), a highly respected teacher, author and inventor, called it "A major breakthrough for drum set method books" and went on to say "No doubt, you're re-inventing the standard."

The success of the book prompted Lackowski to author his next two books, On the Beaten Path: Progressive Rock (2008) and On the Beaten Path: Metal (2009), expanding his best-selling book into a series that further addressed drummers interests. Both books have been well received by the drumming community and have received praise similar to that of the pioneer book. In fact, On the Beaten Path: Progressive Rock was voted as one of the Top 2 Educational Books in Modern Drummer's 2009 Reader's Poll.

In addition to authoring these three successful music instruction books, Lackowski has written articles and features for TRAPS magazine and How to Play Drums magazine, and has performed in various locations around the United States since 1985.

Lackowski was born and raised in Chicago, IL, lived in West Lafayette, IN and Detroit, MI until he moved to Los Angeles, CA where he has resided since 2001. He's played the drums since age 10.

Review:


"On The Beaten Path may be the most interesting book of the year. It's great entertainment, a great read, and great instruction." --Phil Hood: Publisher, DRUM! Magazine
