At 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, June 8, at Guitar Center on Mayfield Road, he’ll give a masterclass about the music industry and what it’s like to “forge a career in music.” He’ll mix live drumming demonstrations with stories and lessons taken from his career.

Then, at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, June 9, at Severance Hall, he’ll participate in the Cleveland Rape Crisis Center’s Sing Out! benefit concert. Cleveland Rape Crisis Center’s semi-annual chorale benefit performance, the event features community members from across the region who “come together as a celebrity chorale to raise awareness and support for critical services for survivors of rape and sexual abuse.”
