Chris Brooks
(b. July 18, 1957)
Chris Brooks is Vice-President of Row-Loff Productions, a percussion publishing company he co-founded with Chris Crockarell in 1990. With hundreds of titles on prescribed music lists in nine states, Row-Loff began with marching percussion ensembles, expanded into concert percussion literature in 1993, and added solos along with a wide selection of instruction books. Known for its clever parodies of pop culture in its marketing CDs, Row-Loff was one of the first in the percussion industry to use audio examples to promote its music.

A 1974 graduate of McGavock High School in Nashville, Brooks began playing drums professionally at age 16. From his jingle work in the recording studio to his live performances with artists such as Toni Tennille, the Smothers Brothers and Lucie Arnaz, these musical experiences influenced Brooks as he began composing percussion ensembles. Brooks, along with partner Crockarell, writes about two-thirds of Row-Loff's percussion catalog. He has written over six dozen original ensembles - including Millennium, performed at Carnegie Hall in March 2013 by the Monterey High School Percussion Ensemble from Lubbock, Texas - co-written several dozen more, and arranged over 30 pieces for percussion. Brooks and Crockarell also wrote and released The Snare Drummer's Toolbox (The Absolute Method for Snare Drum) in 2010.
