I have years of experience teaching drum set and percussion at many levels, from youth, to college, to professionals. I come from a family of educators and love following their path. I work to provide a safe, comfortable, creative learning environment for every student that I teach, and as I hope to be a positive influence on the next generation, I will always be learning from you.

"I cannot thank you enough for your endless patience and for making the drums and music so fun for our young son. You are quite amazing as a teacher and I am forever grateful for your willingness to work with him.."

I have been a professional drummer and educator in Nashville for 30 years and have performed on Grammy and Emmy Award winning recording projects throughout my career, working with many national and international artists including Peter Frampton, Tracy Nelson, Shania Twain, Little River Band, Bob Carlisle, Larry Carlton, Keith and Kristyn Getty, Vince Gill, Allies, The Imperials, Jessica Andrews, Terri Clark, Billy Dean, SheDaisy, Ednita Nazario (Sony Latin), McGuffey Lane, Kathy Mattea, Peter Huttlinger, Emmy Award winning composers Sean Callery and Brian Siewert, Player A Jazz, and performed at the famed Cotton Club in Tokyo, Japan with legendary pop-jazz icon Bill LaBounty. I have recorded on several movie soundtracks including the Showtime tv series Homeland, the Jack Frost movie soundtrack, the Mafia III video game soundtrack, My Little Pony the Movie, Father Figures, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Prairie Home Companion, Budweiser Brazil television ads, and the Jim Brickman PBS television specials Disney Songbook featuring Wayne Brady, Michael Bolton, Lila McCann, and Celebration Of The 70’s featuring David Pack, David Cassidy, and Rita Coolidge.

I have played on numerous Australian Contemporary Country hit records with award winning artists such as Christie Lamb, Kaylens Rain, Jared Porter, Kaylee Bell, Caitlyn Shadboldt, Viper Creek, and Karin Page, among several others.

As a percussionist, I have performed extensively with the Memphis Symphony Orchestra, Ballet Memphis, The Nashville String Machine, and the Tennessee Repertory Theatre Company. In graduate school, I won the Memphis State University Concerto Competition and was a featured marimba soloist playing the Concertino for Marimba and Orchestra, by Paul Creston.
