Bill Bachman
(b. October 24, 1973)
Bill Bachman studied percussion performance at the University of North Texas and is a graduate of the Berklee College of Music. Bill has played with and instructed many award winning marching percussion groups including the UNT drumline, Cadets, Bluecoats, Blue Knights, and Carolina Crown in his 12 years touring with Drum and Bugle Corps. He has presented nearly 200 drum clinics and drum festival performances on five continents over the last decade. As a private lesson instructor, Bill teaches in Dallas, as well as many students worldwide through live internet feeds via Skype.

He is author of Row-Loff's drum instructional books Rudimental Logic, Quad Logic, and Bass Logic and the producer of the instructional drum DVD's, Rudimental Beats and Reefed Beats. Bill is also a columnist for Modern Drummer magazine and the author of the book Stick Technique, an Essential Guide for the Modern Drummer published through Modern Drummer Publishing.

As an inventor, Bill designed Vic Firth's Heavy Hitter Pad series - a wildly successful product that set the standard for the practice pad industry with thinner thicknesses of gum rubber to better approximate Mylar and Kevlar heads, Quadpads set up to scale with the real drums featuring normal and scrape playing areas, Mylar laminates for maximum articulation and realistic feel, a bass pad for bass drummers and the Exactopad for precision training. Bill also designed his unique Vic Firth signature "Billy Club" drumstick for tenor drummers. Most recently Bill introduced the "Remote Speedy Hat" which is designed to replace your standard hi hat stand so that you no longer need to cross over to play the hi hats which frees up your left hand.

In addition to being an international marching and drumset clinician for Remo, Vic Firth, Dynasty, Zildjian, and Row-Loff, Bill has toured with Neal Morse's progressive rock band and is a freelance drummer in the Dallas area. He teaches worldwide through live internet feeds via Skype, as well as locally in Dallas.
