Phil Stanger Oral History of Frank’s Drum Shop–Oral Histroy from NAMM.org : Rhapsody Percussion
www.rhapsodypercussion.com, 14 Jan 2011 [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.

Drummer, Kent, is well versed in rock, jazz, funk, R & B, and Latin styles of music.  His performance journey of over 35 years started with his studies under Phil Stanger of the Legendary Frank's Drum Shop in Chicago.  Since then he has been jobbing with numerous great bands throughout the Chicaoland area and held the drum chair in Ezra Quantine Ragtime Memorial Band, Al Pierson Orchestra (currently Guy Lombardo Orchestra), We the People, The Saxophones, World Class Noise, Tropical Espionage, Atomic Martinis, Traffic Jam, Midnight, and The Niche,.  These groups have advanced his musical journey from the vibrant Lincoln Avenue club scene to many other venues, show circuits, and stages throughout USA and Canada.  In any band or on any stage, Kent plays with heart to lay down a solid groove so audiences feel the music they hear.

I took lessons from Phil for many years at Franks Drum Shop. Phil personally cared abuot his students, got me one nighters at various lounges in the area and could hold a conversation about just about any topic. I loved going to see him play at the Ambassador East where booth one was reserved only for celebrities. Phil was never phased by celebrity, in fact I could easily say he was one of the most down to earth musicians and although he could play rings around other drummers he never displayed that superior attitude. I recall him allowing me to sit in when he played. I spent time at his home in the northern suburbs as well. Going to Frank's Drum Shop for lessons was like going to the biggest drum emporeum in the world. there was always someone banging on something and guys would show off their bravado by playing certain riffs and rudiments and performinbg short solo's to get attention. 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. I took lessons from Phil for many years at Franks Drum Shop.
