I have training and experience playing a wide variety of genres and styles including Jazz, Latin, Rock, Country, R & B, Blues, Funk, Disco and Metal. I also have experience and training with orchestral percussion and marching band.
The vast years of experience and training I have received has served me well in my career so far. If you study with me, I can help you be the best drummer you can possibly be and equip you with the knowledge and expertise to further your career in the music industry.
