Soichiro Tanabe was lauded by drum department chair Craig Pilo as one of the best drum students ever to walk the halls of California College of Music. After completing his Certificate Program in Drum Performance in 2015, Soichiro pursued his optional practical training, which enabled him to gain work experience at Summit Studios as well as The Rose Theatre in Pasadena, CA. Once the CCM community witnessed his talents as a versatile drummer, Soichiro was quickly asked to join projects led by CCM alumni and teachers, including Stan Silich’s Gravizappa and Bobby Halvorson’s Brother, Sister.
