Way back before I knew what a seventh chord was, this guy was the sage seek for musical knowledge. Drew's understanding of theory and knowledge of instrumental technique helped me pave a smooth foundation with music in my youth prior to college. His enthusiasm and patience make him one of the best teachers I've seen. After years of studying, I have had the privilege of performing in many jazz groups with very talented players, and I would be lying if I didn't say Drew
Gumbiner didn't assist and inspire me to peruse my goals early on. He is a talented multi-instrumentalist and a wonderful teacher, I would recommend him to anyone with a desire to study music.
