Florian Alexandru-Zorn, born in 1984, got his first drumkit by the age of 9, but has played with a local BigBand before. He was teached by renowned German drummer Michael Küttner at the Music High School in Mannheim.
His book “The Complete Guide To Playing Brushes”, published via Alfred piublishing, has become a Standard and brought not only national but also international acknowledgement. Florian soon after started giving workshops all over Europe and played with artist such as Jost Nickel, Steve Smith, to name but a few.
His style includes a wide array from Jazz over to World Music, to Hip Hop and Drum’n Bass. In 2009 he toured with the European Masterclass BigBand (Peter Herbolzheimer), plays with Poland’s Star Guitarist Romuald Erenc, a Jazz Group with Prof. Thomas Stabenow, and with his own Trio called F.A.Z..
