I have a Bachelors of Music degree for Professional Music (drum set performance & music production) from Berklee College of Music . Whilst at Berklee I studied under some of the top modern drummers including Dave Dicenso (Josh Groban, Hiromi), James Murphy (Blue Man Group) & Terri Lyne Carrington (Wayne Shorter, Herbie Hancock, Esperanza Spalding).
I am a producer & drummer with a diverse musical background ranging from traditional jazz (voted Young Scottish Jazz Musican of the Year 2012) to modern pop music. My performance experience spans internationally performing on stages in USA, Finland, UK, France & Estonia. As well as performing I'm also skilled in using Ableton & Pro Tools to both produce music and use these DAW's as live performance tool's.
As an independent sideman I have worked with artists such as Skylar Grey, Katelyn Tarver, Jacob McCaslin, Ethan Bortnick & many more.

Ross has improved my drumming so much in such a short period of time. He is truly amazing!!
Very knowledgeable, patient and has great attention to detail. He provides different methods in order for you to understand. Looking forward to my next lesson.
Ross is the best! He's a top young LA musician, by far the best musician AND teacher I've studied with. I feel very very thankful to have an hour of his time every single week to learn from him. He's improved my drumming vastly in such a short period of time, its amazing!+ Read More
My son has been through a couple of different teachers now & it is clear to me Ross really knows what he's doing. He's young, engaging & has a unique teaching method that magically captivates my son every week!
Initially, my son didn't want to change drum teachers but we lucked out by finding Ross. Ross stepped right in and literally has taken my son to the next level of drumming seamlessly. Ross has a great balance of challenging and encouraging his students and I highly recommend him as a drum teacher.+ Read More
Wow! For someone who was completely new to drums and understanding rhythm , Ross was absolutely perfect for what I needed. His attention to detail shows just how knowledgable he is of his craft, and makes hard matters easy to understand! (even a 6 year old could understand him)
His professionalism strives even through online classes, because he's so keen on making sure you understand the context.
Would HIGHLY recommend!
