Mike Packer's New Gig
"It is really an honor to be a part of the growth of the LA Music Academy. I have a vision for where I'd like the school to be and adding the AA Degrees is the first step. We are working on exciting new programs that will be launched in the very near future," says Packer. "The students are our number one priority, and I look forward to expanding and advancing the curriculum across all departments."
Packer's resume is extensive with performance credits including clinics and concerts with the jazz classical quartet Free Flight, Wilson Phillips, Steve Allen, Carl Anderson, Nils Lofgren, Lorna Luft, Regis Philbin, Susan Lucci and Ben Vereen. Television credits include Grounded for Life (WB), Mad TV (Fox), the People's Choice Awards (CBS), the CableAce Awards (TNT) and an Easter Seal Telethon. He has written for Modern Drummer and Drum! Magazine and released an instructional book, Feet Don't Fail Me Now, and a DVD, Bass Drum and Hi Hat Technique, which are available through Hal Leonard publishing. - lamusicacademy.edu
