Today our teacher spotlight is on Drew Simpson, our percussion instructor. He’s been at Pedal Point Music for over a year now.
Drew grew up in Snellville, GA. The son of a drummer and band director, he has been making music his whole life. After graduating from the University of Georgia, he began touring all over North America and Asia as a musician and performer with several Broadway shows.
He then moved to New York with his soon-to-be wife and began working as a drummer and percussionist for many Broadway shows. Among them are Wicked, The Book of Mormon, Kinky Boots, Annie, RENT, and Avenue Q.
While in New York, he also worked as a drummer and performer for an interactive music program for babies and toddlers called Little Maestros.
Mr. Simpson and his wife moved back to Georgia in 2014. He taught in the Norcross cluster for three years and currently teaches in Lawrenceville. He now lives in Dunwoody with his wife, Kelly. They have a daughter named Rhea and a French Bulldog named Remy.
