Phil Stanger Oral History of Frank’s Drum Shop–Oral Histroy from NAMM.org : Rhapsody Percussion

www.rhapsodypercussion.com [cached]

Phil Stanger is no longer in Chicago; however, I did have a chance to meet him and to experience his percussion studio. I will never forget that feeling of complete awe when I first walked into that studio above the Miller's Pub! Phil's studio was the first large collection of percussion instruments I had ever seen. He had so many percussion instruments and had so much history to share-it was quite overwealming!

...
The list of famous people I met there were too numerous to mention, but the greatest celebrity was always going into that tiny room and getting one on one time with Mr. Phil Stanger. I will never forget him and how he helped to mentor me in more ways then just music.

Thanks Anthony for sharing your story about Mr Stanger. I find it amazing how many people were influenced by him.
...
I studied with Phil for 8 or 10 years and worked at Franks for 10 or 12 years. Your right Phil was a great drummer and even greater teacher.
...
I live near Phil and heard his name mentioned in a local music store. THe next day I was buying a car and the dealer mentioned that he plays drums when I started yakking he said, "you have to meet this guy, he's one of the gratest drummers ever; he gave me a pair of sticks that belonged to Buddy Rich. He's one of my family's best friends; we talk almost every day. So he called Phil and introduced me over the phone. The next day Phil called and talked with me for about half an hour.
...
Phil Stanger was always booked so many of us had to choose from one of their other great teachers.
...
I also had a friend named Bruce Grayson who took lessons for about 5 years from Phil Stanger.
...
I had the pleasure of studying drums with Phil in the 70's. What a great teacher, player...and a really nice guy.
...
I too, was a past student with Phil, and studied with him for many years. Ny tenure with Phil all began in December of 1965. Phil then, was teaching at the Chicago School of Music on Van Buren, and two lessons later, Phil left for Frank's Drum Shop. I of course followed.
I remember when I started, I could not even play LRLRLRLRL. Being only 10 years old, I picked up quickly.
Had my lessons with Phil every Saturday, I believe at 10, or 10:30am. Fast forward to July of 1968, Phil broke the news on one Saturday's lesson, that next week I go in with Roy Knapp to take my NARD Test.
...
My fears were of course thinking that Roy didn;t much like kids, and as well, the respect of knowing here's a man that was known as the Dean Of Drums, Phil's, and many other great's teacher, and I felt so small, and insignificant.
Phil cautioned me about a couple of my bad habits, of saying "wait", or "hold it", and if I did that once with Roy, I'd flunk the test.
...
While I haven't spoken with Phil recently, I do keep in touch with him from time to time. Will have to call him soon!
I'll always be forever thankful to Phil, he molded me, nurtured, and greatly enhanced my love for music, he taught me to understand, and how to better express myself through music.
