Professional Drummer/Composer & Reiki Practitioner
Lenny Santoro has been involved in the Music business as a professional Drummer/Composer for over 45 years. He got his start on drum set performing in local night clubs while still in his teens and attending high school. He furthered his education attending the University of Pittsburgh's Music School - studying music composition and theory and classical percussion. He then continued to study privately in New York with Master Drum Instructors: Saul Goodman, Jim Chapin, and Stanley Spector. It was with Stanley Spector that he explored the very unique way in which rhythm could affect the body physically in a most positive way for both the performer and listener creating what is termed - "The relaxation response". Lenny also took the physical aspect of drumming further by studying the science of Kineseology with Local Pittsburgh instructor-Tom La Flame.
Lenny has used is extensive training and performing experience in many diverse arena's. He has backed many performers on a national level from country singers Mel Tillis, and Johnny Paycheck, to R&B group The Tramps, to off broadway shows and USO Tours overseas. He also backed many name Doo Wop, and R & B acts that came in to Pittsburgh, as well as worked the local recording scene.
Lenny is now focusing his attention on a new genre and modality - The RAV Drum. The RAV is a relatively new and unique instrument of the Hand Pan family. The unique tones of this drum have been found to be very conducive to the Relaxation Response. The RAV has very unique qualities not often found in other instruments of it's kind, and due to it's vibrational qualities, entrains this on a very deep level.
In 2016, Lenny became involved as a Reiki Practitioner and has been trained and certified at Reiki Level II, by his reiki master Nicole Druga. He has now combined all of his previous experience, and training in a collaboration with Nicole Druga, to a new modality - Reiki and Sound Fusion! This combination has proved, to provide a vibrational experience that moves deeply in to the body, that may promote healing and relaxation even on a cellular level!
The RAV has also shown to work well in conjunction with Restorative Yoga, Lenny has been performing RAV Drums now on a regular basis at Sterling Yoga, and "I hope to share this with as many people as possible".
