Limp Bizkit’s John Otto Is Getting Set To Disrupt How You Learn Music

Legendary drummer John Otto – who is most famous for bringing the beats to his band Limp Bizkit – is getting set to launch his own online school of rock for those wanting to learn how to play the drums like he does!

But, Otto’s music school – John Otto Drums – is unlike others out there, and we spoke directly to the drumming king on how he plans to disrupt and take his students to the “Mathews Bridge”…

How did you decide you wanted to branch out from Limp Bizkit and start your own music school alongside your own Twitch channel?

I’m passionate about music, mentoring and gaming. During the quarantine, I was inspired by the creative ways people were connecting online. I decided it was the right time to realize my dream of teaching other musicians and connecting with my fans and fellow gamers.  

You also own your own label. What sets it apart from others? 

Our label is unique because we operate as a talent incubator. Our artists are developed by artists. That sets us apart from most other labels. Our goal is to help artists take their music to the next level. 

How hard was it developing the curriculum and platform for your school? 

It’s tedious work, but I know how to build a strong foundation for drumming. Thankfully, I was able to draw from my experience of learning from some of the best drummers/teachers when I was coming up.

What type of people can most benefit from signing up to the school once it launches?

People who are passionate about the drums and willing to work on their craft will find my school beneficial. My goal is to meet each student where they are on their musical journey. We’re able to work with all levels of drummers. 

How do you feel or know that your music classes will disrupt the music learning industry?

In addition to my online school being informative I want it to provide each student with an interactive experience that feels personalized. I will be available as a resource to my students. 

How excited are you to also get back to playing shows on the road again?

I’m excited to be back on the road with my boys playing songs from our new album and our crowd favorites. I’ve missed connecting with our fans. It’s going to feel good to play live music again in this post-pandemic era.

As a father, entrepreneur, gamer, record label executive and musician…. what is your ultimate goal from here for John Otto?

My goal is to make a positive impact on the lives of my loved ones and others around me. I’ve been blessed in this life. If I can pay that forward I’ll be a happy man.
