2009 saw Todd Sucherman win the Modern Drummer Reader’s Poll for #1 Rock Drummer, #1 Educational DVD with “Methods and Mechanics” as well as #1 Clinician in DRUM! Magazine all while touring the world with the multi-platinum rock band Styx and performing drum clinics and recording sessions from coast to coast. But the musical history began basically at birth.
Todd kept up with his musical studies through school and attended Berklee College of Music for one year. There he studied privately with Gary Chaffee, a world renowned educator with former students the likes of Steve Smith and Vinnie Colaiuta.
In 1988, Todd returned to Chicago and quickly established himself as a first call musician in the recording scene. As an in demand player for live and session work, this led to his association with the band Styx.
In-between his time with Styx he’s recorded over 1000 radio and TV spots and worked with artists diverse as Peter Cetera, Brian Culbertson, Spinal Tap, Michael Bolton, The Falling Wallendas, Eric Marienthal, and Brian Wilson (including his 2003 release with Paul McCartney, Eric Clapton and Elton John.) Todd has been an in demand clinician performing at drum festivals around the world.
In 2007 he produced and played on the debut from Taylor Mills, “Lullagoodbye” which featured appearance from Brian Wilson and Tommy Shaw.
After years of touring and recording, Sucherman began work on his much anticipated instructional DVD release “Methods and Mechanics” available from the store at Toddsucherman.com, In this presentation that Modern Drummer magazine called “a stunning achievement” and “one of the most stunning looking and sounding DVDs ever”, Sucherman brings the knowledge of thousands of gigs, shows and recording sessions along with over three decades as a professional drummer to this useful and unique DVD package. Astonishing technique, power and musicality explode from the various musical and solo performances throughout this presentation. Working with artists over a myriad of genres diverse as Styx, Brian Wilson, Spinal Tap, Eric Marienthal, Peter Cetera, John Wetton, Steve Cole, The Falling Wallendas and countless more, there’s a wealth of knowledge imparted that goes way beyond just the technical aspects of drumming. Methods and Mechanics is filled with practical career tips that will help you navigate through the music business as well as mental aspects and cerebral approaches to the art of playing music on the drums.
Sucherman won the Modern Drummer Magazine Reader’s poll for #1 Educational DVD as well as #1 Rock Drummer for 2009, as well as #1 Clinician in DRUM!
2011 saw the release of the “Methods and Mechanics” companion/ Transcription book as well as the much anticipated DVD sequel, “Methods and Mechanics II” which has just won “Best in Show” at the 2012 NAMM show in Anaheim, California. “Methods and Mechanics II” also won best educational DVD in DRUM! Magazine reader’s poll in 2012.
Todd continues to tour the with STYX and record with various artists. He is also an in demand clinician and educator world wide.
