Growing up surrounded by musicians, Dimitri was introduced to music at an early age. Both his father and uncle are professional musicians and instructors, performing since they themselves were children.
At eight years old, Dimitri began taking drum lessons at Saucon Valley Music from well-known jazz performer Randy Koons. At eleven, he joined “Saucon Valley Music Elite Performers,” consisting of SVM students performing at various local venues.
Dimitri studied with several accomplished drummers, including Pete Pandelios and Ted Poley. Now an instructor, each lesson plan is customized, as he feels every student is on a different path.
He currently performs with two working bands and is well versed in studio recording and producing.
