Fortunately, my career has been fruitful enough to keep me in plain view of an extremely large public, and play shows with many major artists. Some of which are Garth Brooks, George Strait, Kevin Fowler, Cody Johnson, Johnny Lee, Randy Rogers, Johnny Bush, Trace Atkins, Chris Young, Eddy Raven, Lee Ann Rimes, Merle Haggard, Willie Nelson, Ronnie Milsap, Sons of the Desert, Ty Herndon, Vince Gill, Toby Keith, Diamond Rio, Georgia Satellites, Doobie Bros. Ricky Van Shelton, Shenandoah, Lone Star, Christopher Cross, Judas Priest, to name a few. I’ve even played in Washington DC for the Republican National Convention, entertaining John Boehner Speaker of the House of the United States of America, and past President George W. Bush.
“If you’re looking for a drum instructor, I’m convinced you couldn’t make a better choice than Phil Dalmolin! In addition to his long professional career and skills, Phil is just a natural teacher. The first time I took my son for a lesson, it was really obvious how well he connects to people and how he translates his passion for music into really outstanding instruction. My son has been taking lessons from Phil for 2.5 years now, has become very talented, is the 1st chair in school band for drums, and has the desire and drive to practice (which he does all the time) and become better. So much of the credit goes to Phil for his ability to teach and inspire!” Jim L.
