Darren Kramer – Founder / Educator – is a professional freelance musician with 35 years of extensive experience as a performer, multi-instrumentalist, improviser, composer, educator and producer of many styles from classical to jazz to funk to salsa. Kramer graduated from University of Miami and has toured internationally with Rob Thomas Rock Band Matchbox Twenty, performed on TV shows like Jay Leno & David Letterman, and recorded with world-renowned saxophonist Michael Brecker. However, Kramer is more than just a trombonist. He is an exceptionally well-rounded musician, educator, entrepreneur and music technology expert who founded his own music company in 1998 called DKO The Darren Kramer Organization. Many people have been inspired by DKO concerts, educational clinics, 5 original CDs, 50 big band charts and several Electric Trombone DJ innovations – all of which have helped modernize the trombone in contemporary music. Kramer is also co-founder and CEO of TheGigEasy Complete Music Solutions for iPad since 2010. Now in 2016, he has added DKO Lessons to his DKO brand in order to share his vast knowledge with musicians worldwide through this new online education paradigm.
