Kaz Rodriguez is a professional drummer/clinician, music director, educator, musical programmer, producer and one of the latest additions to the ICMP faculty.
Originally inspired by musical heroes such as Stewart Copeland and Simon Philips, Kaz has become a much in-demand drummer with the world of contemporary music.
He began working with a range of pop artists including Jessie Ware, Sinead Harnett, Rita Ora, Plan B, Jay Sean and Cirque De Soleil.
His musical career went into the stratosphere once he started creating backing tracks for other drummers, with YouTube lit up by players jamming to workouts such as his ‘7 To The Power of 6’ and ‘Fusion Shed Vol. 2’, and his current gold selling album 'THOUGHTS' vol.3.
Since then, Kaz has made fans in a range of musical legends such as Travis Barker, Aaron Spears, Tony Royster and Chris Coleman, Jonathan 'Sugarfoot' Moffett (Michael Jackson) and continues to go from strength to strength using the latest tech to enhance his playing and compositions.
Kaz is endorsed by Tama Drums, Zildjian Cymbals, Roland, Protection Racket Cases, Evans Drumheads, Sub PAC, and LP percussion
