LOS ANGELES, CA  -  Tuesday, June 08, 2010

Alfred Music Publishing, home to the world’s largest percussion print music catalog, is thrilled to congratulate drummer Paul Wertico for receiving a “Lifetime Achievement Award for Major Contribution to the World of Drumming & Education” at the 10th annual Cape Breton International Drum Festival held May 22 and 23 in Nova Scotia, Canada. This year’s festival theme was “Year of the Legends.”

Long-time drummer for the Pat Metheny Group, Paul Wertico is a seven-time Grammy® award winner who is widely acknowledged as one of the premier players in jazz drumming. Joined by legendary drummers from around the world for the festival, Wertico commented, “I am truly honored and grateful that my work has been recognized as significant by my peers in the field.”

Alfred is proud to offer Wertico’s newest instructional DVD, Paul Wertico: Drum Philosophy, which delves into his unique approach to the drums. His analysis of the performances included in this DVD is as much mental as it is physical and will give you great insight into the philosophy he employs when he sits down at the drumset. Paul Wertico: Drum Philosophy is now available for $19.95 as a DVD. Pick up your copy today.
