Peter Bylin started drumming very early and as a 9-year old he started playing drums in the local marching band in his home town in the north of Sweden. Several years later after intense studies in different music schools and with many top drum instructors, he moved to Stockholm and started working as a freelance drummer and percussionist. Peter is very in demand as a session/touring drummer working all over Europe. Based in Stockholm, he is also a sought after drum educator teaching at the Stockholm School of Arts Jazz program, and he also does many clinics and masterclasses.
Most memorable Next-Level PerformanceOne of my first drum clinics was a big drum festival in Stockholm Sweden. I played with a drum duo project I had with a great drummer friend of mine. At the festival were many of my top favorite drummers in the world so the pressure was on ! Also, the festival was going to be visited by the late great mr. Vic Firth, so I was very exited! Vic sign me on as a endorser after our performance that evening, and I will never forget his inspiring words to me and his compliments on my drumming. I became a better and more confident player that evening !
