Jeff Repo (known to the broader drumming community as #milehighdrummer) began playing drums at the age of 16 in his home of Ontario, Canada. By age 18, he had already moved to the United States as a touring drummer involved with multiple projects. Since 2008, he has toured America with jazz/fusion band SPiNRaD, sharing stages with such notable acts as Tauk, Marbin, Evan’s Blue, and Paul Thorne.
Jeff has been teaching students of all ages and abilities since 2011. He has studied with drum greats such as Robert ‘Sput’ Searight (Snarky Puppy), Mike Johnston, and Rick Gratton. In addition, he has also taken Master Classes with Steve Gadd, Mike Marlier, Greg Bissonette, Jim Riley and Mike Drake.
He specializes in independence, linear drumming, rudiments, world grooves, hand and foot technique, odd meter, as well as studying various styles. Jeff loves to teach and help drummers unlock their fuller potential. He strives to provide musical inspiration through drumming and the celebration of rhythm, and his intuitive approach to teaching focuses on exploring the vocabulary and the ability to freely express it.
Jeff is committed to honoring the heritage of drumming and exploring the future of it.
