Drew got a guitar at the age of 11, and started taking formal lesson right away. He was drawn to classic rock and blues early on. While taking lessons he was introduced to different styles such as Jazz, Funk, Metal, and Shred. He stopped taking lessons after a year and began to learn by transcribing songs by ear. He soon began learning to play songs by artist such as AC/DC, Jimi Hendrix, Eddie Van Halen, and Eric Clapton. After working on his technique and theory he was able to progress to songs by Pantera, Paul Gilbert, Richie Kotzen, Blues Saraceno, Andy Timmons, and Yngwie Malmsteen. After High School Drew attended Musicians Institute's G.I.T program In Hollywood, CA and completed his Associates Degree in Guitar Performance and Music Theory.
