I'm a passionate Drummer and Educator with 17 years playing experience and 4 years teaching experience. Committed to helping students have FUN while learning to make music and discover their own individual “voice” on the drum-set.
When I was 9 years old my Father played me the drum solo to Iron Butterfly's “In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida”; I knew I was destined to be a lifelong drummer ever since. From an early age I was mesmerized by the bombastic power of Rock and Roll Drummers such as John Bonham, Keith Moon and Ginger Baker. As I progressed as a Rock player and my musical interests expanded, I found myself naturally gravitating towards Jazz and Afro-Cuban as well as traditional West African rhythms. The dynamic range, finesse and subtle possibilities within these styles challenges me to grow as a musician and keeps me coming back to my drum kit each day. I continue to learn from and be inspired by pioneers such as Babatunde Olatunji, Peter Erskine, Buddy Rich, Art Blakey, Billy Cobham, Max Roach,Elvin Jones and anyone who is able to connect to their own inner rhythm and play joyfully from their heart.

I have been writing and performing music since he was 15. Along the way I have played or recorded with numerous notable bands including Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees George Clinton and Parliament Funkedic, and members of Bob Dylan's band. In classical music, I have learned music composition under Dan Asia at the University of Arizona and East Indian Classical music from master musician Ali Akbar Khan at the Ali Akbar School of Music. I have been teaching lessons in guitar, vocals, banjo, and harmonica for 15 years. My lessons are always focused on whatever style the student is most interested in, yet still incorporate a dose of music theory and other styles to help inspire well rounded musicians. I can teach to any age, in any genre, as well as help with songwriting, performance techniques, recording skills, and classical composition. Whether you want to learn to play songs from your favorite band, rock out with awesome guitar solos, play beautiful spanish guitar pieces, or write you masterpiece, I can help you realize your musical dreams. My goal is to inspire the next generation of musicians to get the most out of their instrument, and foster a life long love of music that can enrich their lives and the world around them.
Bass Guitar, Guitar, Piano, Classical Guitar, Music Recording, Music Theory
As a composer I have found it necessary never to stray too far from performance. The shear exhilaration one can obtain through playing an instrument is unique and powerful. I have devoted my life to trying to understand and master this elusive beast we call Music. As a child, of a peculiar spirit, I demanded my parents get me guitar and piano lessons. I felt an instant connection to these instruments and was compelled to investigate. After years of inquiry I ended up attending New School for the Arts, a high school devoted to the arts where I
studied music composition. From there, I went on to the University of Arizona to receive degrees in Music Composition and Philosophy with minors in Mathematics and English Literature. For my Masters' programs I wondered into the world of contemporary composers and experimental music at Mills College in Oakland where I finished my M.A. in Music Composition as well as my M.F.A. in Electronic Music and Recording Media. All the while pursuing a mastery of the instruments that caught my ear in the first place.
I have now returned to Tucson to work on my music and further my education in the field of philosophy at the University of Arizona.
