Theo started drumming at the age of six with two wooden spoons on a telephone book. At the age of eight his parents bought him his first snaredrum. After taking two years of private lessons with a drummer of a big band he was ready to buy his first drum kit.

In the first serious period, after beating up several phonebooks, he often listened to great drummers such as Gene Krupa, Buddy Rich, Lionel Hampton, Joe Morello and Art Blakey. During this phase of his love affair with drums, Theo developed his ear and an authentic feel for big band and jazz drumming as well as his ability to read drum scores. The music of Stan Kenton, Count Basie, Duke Ellington and the Buddy Rich Big Band were a great influence on Theo’s rich musical sensibility. An important source of support and influence, Theo’s father was a trumpet player in several big bands.
