I make drumming understandable to someone who has not yet learned the craft. I will give you a series of tests to see what level your natural skill for rhythm is at.

We will work on getting you playing beats from day one. Whatever music you're into we will work on getting you playing that type of music. In addition, I will teach a break down of the basics and what has worked best for me.

Essentially I will implement the rudiments necessary to becoming a well-rounded beat maker. Depending on where you're at with your level of playing I will also play guitar to your drum beats so you're able to really enjoy the playing experience.

Drumming for me has been part of my being since birth. I always knew I knew how to play. My mother finally bought me a drum pad, sticks and a book in 3rd grade and began to teach myself through sticking patterns in the book. By the time I was qualified for band in school at 4th grade and immediately was pushed to advanced band In 5th grade I convinced some my favorite musicians in 8th grade that I played drums but I didn't have a drum set and they didn't have a drummer so 2 months later I finally received my first drumset! I set it up in those 8th graders' basement and started rocking out. They believed right away. The amazing thing was for me, it was the only skill I ever had that gave me the confidence to go for other big opportunities in my life. This isn't just a skill you learn and can only apply to one area. This is a to prove to yourself you're capable of anything you put your mind to. As of present I drum for Red Hymns, Pralaya, and a multi-instrumentalist with my solo music. I look forward to being able to prove to yourself how much greatness you're truly capable of achieving. Let's have some fun and make beats!
