Local online mentoring site forms alliance with Modern Drummer Magazine

A Rochester-based online mentoring site has formed a strategic alliance with Modern Drummer Magazine to share educational content and master classes for the world’s drum community.

Mastermind Lounge currently provides live online lessons for all forms of music and musicians, as well mentoring for sports, technology, business and lifestyles. Under the new alliance, Mastermind Lounge will employ its private and secure international platform with Modern Drummer to provide educational content, live video lessons and direct artist connections for drum enthusiasts.

Famed Eastman School of Music Professor Emiratis John Beck will be the first drum legend featured.

“Mastermind Lounge is a full-service interactive mentoring and educational website, initially focused on music education and now expanding in sports, business, health and many other areas,” said Founder and CEO Robert Brenna Jr., who has been a drummer for decades and is the founder of law firm Brenna Boyce PLLC. “We are honored and thrilled to enhance our alliance with Modern Drummer Magazine and to expand the boundaries of education.”

Among the planned initiatives will be the ability for Modern Drummer readers to book and schedule private one-on-one or group lessons with John Beck, a world-renowned and foremost timpanist and percussion educator with the Eastman School of Music, officials said.

“Modern Drummer is excited to be expanding our scope with Mastermind Lounge on multiple promotions and projects, giving our readers access to virtual one-on-one learning with one of the greatest percussionists in the world, John Beck,” said Modern Drummer CEO and Publisher David Frangioni.

MastermindLounge.com provides a live network and internet connection platform that places students, fans and those willing to explore new horizons with potential mentors or celebrities that they have admired. Teaching will be done in both individual and group settings. Mastermind Lounge is a global video platform, integrated with an automated scheduling and payment system.

“Our goal is to give access to people who want to learn from the best, and to provide teachers additional revenue streams with a wide database of students they would not otherwise have access to,” Brenna said.
