During the past 30 years he's devoted to computers, teaching, and drumming in diverse musical settings including jazz, rock, classical, shows, dance bands, club dates, and his newest foray into Scottish drumming.

  • In the tradition of my Dad, Al Germansky originally teaching in Newark and then West Orange, instruction is focused on theory, technique, and practical playing from classical to contemporary styles.
  • Materials include original works from Al Germansky along with an array of classic drum books including Joel Rothman's books.
  • Referral by Nicholas O'Sullivan, Band Director, Governor Livingston HS

    I've known Mitch Germansky for eleven years. He's an accomplished percussionist who can play in various styles: regimental/traditional, concert, jazz, and pop. He performs regularly in various groups throughout Central Jersey and is just as handy on a regimental snare drum as he is on a drumset. Mitch is a big supporter of music education for all, and this is most evident by the continuing musical lineage that exists in his family. He is a thoughtful and conscientious human being that would serve the novice or advanced student very well.

I look forward to meeting you.
