Sagy Ben-Or was born in Haifa, Israel on April 7th, 1977. He started his musical education at the age of 14 and by the time he was in high school, he was playing with local bands, while learning from the best teachers in Israel.
Sagy was first influenced by a fusion music at the age of 16 and immediately had a connection with drummers like Dave Weckl, Vinnie Colaiuta, Steve Gadd and many other great drummers.
In 2004 Sagy moved to L.A to join the LAMA – LA Music Academy – to sharpen his drumming skills and to meet great teachers such as Ralph Humphrey, Joe Porcaro, Mike Packer and many others.
Soon after, Sagy began teaching at various music & drumming schools and eventually opened his own drumming school and focused on teaching private lessons.
Realizing what his students were missing, Sagy assembled a team to launch GigFreak.com
