Alex Cohen has emerged as one of the most advanced progressive drummers on the planet.  Called “incredible” by Thomas Lang, and “a revelation” by Virgil Donati, Alex is pushing the boundaries of what was thought to be possible on the drum set.  Both of his books, Ultimate Progressive Drumming, and Extreme Polyrhythm And Speed Techniques (co-authored with Brazilian drumming icon Ramon Montagner) have received rave reviews from drummers ranging from Derek Roddy to John Riley.

A faculty member at the world-renowned Drummer’s Collective in New York City, Alex maintains a busy teaching and gigging schedule, as well as running a high-end recording studio in Pennsylvania.  He was the recipient of the 2024 Louie Bellson Award from Drumeo for his innovations on the instrument with independence and double bass, and he will soon be releasing his third book and conducting drum camps all over the world.
