I'm a professional drummer and songwriter hailing from Massachusetts. I have been drumming seriously for 14 years and I received my Bachelor of Arts in Jazz Performance from the Lamont School of Music at the University of Denver. I am versatile in a variety of styles from Reggae, Rock, Blues, Jazz, and Hip-Hop and many more. I bring an element of discovery to my drum lessons, because I believe that I am learning along with my students.
Drummers who study under me can expect to improve week to week. Together we will improve your improvisation, stick control, speed, and sight-reading. Lessons will be catered to your proficiency level and your personal goals for being a drummer.
Outside of teaching and school, I am a member of three bands. My indie rock band Specific Ocean has released our first single and will be releasing our debut EP very soon. We will be playing in the 18th annual Underground Music Showcase on July 27th. We have also played mainstays of the Denver scene such as the Larimer Lounge and Lost Lake. My second band is the neo-soul infused funk band Sol Burial. I also play in a free-jazz group called Deals Deals Deals.
I am very excited to extend my passion for the drums and music to you and help you to improve your skills on the set instantly. I look forward to meeting you and helping you grow as a musician!
