I have been playing drums professionally for over 8 years. I have played some of the most famous venues in Los Angeles, and throughout southern California. My specialty is that I am actually a rockstar. I have a talent for teaching, especially children and young adults, and I have not only a degree from Musician's Institute (a World famous music school), but I also have real life experience putting those skills to use in real life situations.

I graduated from Musician's Institute of Hollywood CA, and earned a degree in Percussion in 2007. I'm an experienced and drive person and my teaching style is adaptable and effective.

This a certification I earned for being proficient at marketing and consulting. I have adapted the information I learned here to the drums and music as a whole. I wrote a book and I am currently developing an online training program that teaches drummers to market themselves and earn money for playing the drums. It is based off of my #1 Best selling book "Drum and Grow Rich"

I received certification for completing the Author Expert Marketing Machines program. This program taught me how to write for marketing purposes, position myself as an expert in my field, and put what I know into an easy to package formula.
