Matthias Philipzen

Born in 1966 in Schwäbisch Gmünd, the drummer and percussionist Matthias Philipzen learned his craft mainly in an autodidactic manner. A lenghty stay in the United States while studying at the Drummers´ Collective in New York led him to pursue a career as a professional musician.
Today, he lives in Würzburg where he works as a teacher at the University of Music; he is also frequently booked to present workshops and to perform as a live musician all over Europe.
Moreover, he has already published four books and two instructional DVDs on cajon playing and acts as a freelance editor for the drum magazine “Drum Heads”.
In 2010, Matthias Philipzen and his band Alea (founded in 1984) have released their fifth album.
