Petar Janjic is a Minnesota drummer who has a fascinating and inspiring musical journey that you need to learn more about.
Growing up in Serbia, Petar was always driven by the drums. Inspired by his drumming father and the rich Serbian music scene, Petar was constantly motivated to play and learn as much as possible about the instrument. He was influenced early on by the greats in music like James Brown and Prince, along with a blend of The Steve Miller Band just to name a few. At a young age he decided he needed to be in America to be near the music that he loved.
Already an accomplished drummer, Petar moved to America to attend The McNally Smith School of Music on a full scholarship. He eventually became an instructor, and quickly became an in-demand local player. He also started working with some of the very musicians that inspired him back in Serbia. His enthusiasm for life and drumming are balanced as precisely as his ability to play.
In this episode of [episode of what?], Paul “The Rög” Rogne and Petar scratch the surface of his story and learn more about his approach to playing in a series of videos that demonstrate his various techniques.
