Modern Drummer Unveils Neil Peart Drumming Scholarship

Modern Drummer magazine is honoring the memory of late Rush drummer Neil Peart with the unveiling of a new drumming scholarship awarded to a promising young musician between the ages of 14 and 21 years old.

The “Neil Peart Spirit of Drumming Scholarship” –which coins its name from the Rush song, “Spirit of Radio”– includes a full year of free drum lessons from Dom Famularo, as well as a one-year subscription to the Modern Drummer All Access service, and a selection of classic Rush albums.

Submissions–which include an essay about what the scholarship, drumming and Peart mean to the applicant, along with a two minute drumming video clip– can be made at, must be received before November 26 of this year.
