Matt Greiner, Drummer for August Burns Red and Drum Teacher
My name is Matt Greiner, I play drums in Lancaster County based band, August Burns Red. My parents tell me that I started playing drums when I was 6 months old. My mom tells me that I would sit in my highchair and make noise with my hands. When I was a little older I would take pots and pans out of the cabinet and set them up on the kitchen floor and play drum beats. I have much to be thankful for but most of all I’m filled with gratitude for my parents and their patience and understanding in allowing me to play the loudest instrument on the planet!
Because of my mom’s diligence and insight, I took piano lessons from age 10 until I was 15. Even though I didn’t enjoy taking weekly lessons at the time my mom was right in saying that I would benefit from it in more ways than I could imagine later on down the road. Sure enough, she was right. After 5 years of piano lessons, I convinced my parents at age 15 to allow me to buy a snare drum that I could play on. Perhaps a selling point was the fact that a snare drum in the basement was better than my hands making noise on the kitchen table for 3 meals per day.
