Blending diverse rhythmic styles into the mainstream scene with good taste has been Tim Kane’s forte as a musician for more than 30 years.
He is certified and endorsed as a school drum instructor by Vic Firth, an international manufacturer of drum sticks, mallets, brushes and percussive devices. He is also a recognized current member of the Massachusetts Music Educators Association.
An award-winning musician, Kane began drumming and playing trombone in fourth grade and continued through college. He is certificate and course trained in rock, jazz, concert and marching bands. He studied and performed with a jazz quintet at the well-respected Indian Hill Music Center in Littleton, Mass. and in Fitchburg State University’s jazz ensemble and orchestra. He now plays in three local bands and has performed with national touring artists.
Inspired early on by music from artists such as Rush, Dave Brubeck, Van Halen, Fleetwood Mac, Steely Dan, The Police, Buddy Rich and Phil Collins’ Brand X, Kane has developed his own style that is often compared that of master drummers Steve Gadd and Stewart Copeland.
