Chuck Sabo

Drummer Supreme Chuck Sabo joins the institute

The Institute of Contemporary Music Performance is thrilled to announce that the 'master of the groove' drummer Chuck Sabo has agreed to join our drum faculty!

Chuck’s CV reads like a who's who of the music industry and includes such greats as Elton John, Dave Stewart and Tina Turner. Best known within drum circles for his long-standing association with pop starlet Natalie Imbruglia and his delicious grooving at various drum events over the years, Chuck Sabo has a reputation in the wider music industry as a top-notch Musical Director, songwriter and producer.

If you're looking for someone who personifies the old adage that "it takes years of hard work to become an overnight success," look no farther than Chuck Sabo. Though his recording credits include an impressive list of heavyweights, including Natalie Imbruglia, Elton John, Dave Stewart, Chaka Khan, Cher, Tina Turner, Pet Shop Boys, Pulp, Billy Preston, Roy Orbison, Terence Trent D'Arby, Seal, Sophie Ellis Bextor, Right Said Fred, Shakespear's Sister, Take That, O.M.D., 808 State, Tashan, Belinda Carlisle, Kiki Dee, Etienne Daho and Michel Polnareff and his playing has driven more than a dozen Top 10 singles in the U.K., he's kept largely out of the limelight, focusing instead on making connections, building his résumé and, always, playing for the song.

Chuck will start teaching at the Institute from October 2007 which means there has never been a better time to join the Institute!
