He received his Masters of Music in Percussion Performance & Jazz Studies from Central Washington University in 1993. Garey has been reviewed in Modern Drummer, Rhythm Magazine, Percussive Notes and numerous regional and local newspapers.


Garey Williams will be giving a clinic on Big Band Drumming based on his latest book, Drummer’s Guide to Big Band. You will learn: Chart Reading Checklist, Big Band Set-ups, Ride Cymbal techniques for slow, medium and fast tempos, hi hat two and bass drum pedal techniques, Brushes, Shuffles, Latin grooves and much more.

“This book, along with the accompanying tracks, videos, and charts, provides a concise, informative and fun introduction to the world of big band drumming.”-Tommy Igoe (Birdland Big Band, Tommy Igoe Groove Conspiracy, author of Groove Essentials series)

“Garey has put together a wealth of great material in a very effective, logical manner. His practice tips, musical philosophies, and performance suggestions are right on the money. The play-along tracks are fresh and musical with Garey really getting “inside” the music. This will help many aspiring players for years to come. Congratulations!”-Steve Houghton (Professor of Jazz and Percussion – Indiana University, PAS Past President)

I’ve listened to a lot of drummers and you have something few drummers have. You hear the subtleties in music. You sound great!”-Jeff Hamilton (Jeff Hamilton Trio, Ray Brown, Oscar Peterson, Diana Krall, Ella Fitzgerald)
