I am a seasoned veteran drummer with over 35 years of varied experiences. As a caring, nurturing and patient drum instructor , my lessons will significantly benefit beginner, intermediate and advanced students regardless of their age.
I have taught several students with learning disabilities such as ADHD and ADD and their confidence and ability has grown from learning to play drums.
Genres of music include: Hard Rock, Soft Rock, Rock-Pop, Classic Rock, Blues, Shuffles (Double Bass Drum), Funk, R&B, Jazz, Progressive Rock and Heavy Metal among others.
As a result of my many years of drumming experience, I am a dynamic, powerful & original drummer with distinct style and technique.
I have played in many rock bands around the country and have been giving drum lessons for 10 years in Los Angeles, Arizona and now in Florida.
Studying drums and percussion for ten years with private drum instructor, Ken Battat gave me the ability to perform live and to record with various groups around the Albuquerque area which I succeeded in accomplishing. This included performing with my high school Jazz band and receiving the opportunity to participate as first chair drummer in the state of New Mexico All-State jazz band in 1995, performing with the CelebrateYouth Jazz band of Albuquerque, working with two Heavy Metal bands, a Blues band, a Reggae band, a Fusion/World trio, two Salsa groups, a Country band, a Spanish/Variety band and a Variety Rock band. In 1998, I placed second in a state wide drum competition called Thunder Drums and also, had a two year stent providing drum lessons to the community. As I was taking lessons and classes from drummers such as Zoro, Joe Morello, Giovanni Hidalgo, Steve Smith, Charlie Adams, Joe Bonadio, Phil Maturano, Steve Houghton and Gordon Gottlieb, I moved to Los Angeles in 2000 where I resided for eight years and recorded with several different groups, artists and religious organizations such as Mark Salling, Kluverbucy, the Brock Band, Sugar Spun, Loaded, Sayed Sabrina, The Dwayne Stephenson Trio, Spirit Works and Open Door Worship Center. Lastly, I am honored to have had the opportunity to work with and learn from Grammy award winning producers, John Rodby and Charles Goodan while working with each of them on two separate projects.
