I have know Ty Key for over ten years, he is a human metronome. He can play any style of music and play it to perfection. I have seen him perform with different bands and different styles over the years and one thing is constant, his play stands out. I have seen him record at East West studios In LA tracking both live drums and the total live percussion set and the results were amazing. He plays in the pocket, both rhythm and solos. I could not feel more comfortable recommending someone who has mastered their craft more than Ty. He is easy to get along with and an outstanding teacher. He has worked as a drum technician and teacher at school ever since I’ve known him. He is a great person and you would lucky to learn from him.

I’ve known Ty for over ten years. He is one of the hardest working musicians I know, and works with integrity and all the highest positive qualities of a professional musician you could hope for. Any organization would benefit from Ty’s involvement.
