I'm Wesley A. I have been drumming and playing percussion for about 14 years. I am 26 years old. I recently graduated with a B.A in Music from North Greenville University near Greenville, SC under the tutelage of Dr. Chris Davis, President of the SC Chapter of PAS (Percussion Arts Society). I am laid back as a teacher and I will try to make the experience fun for anyone.
I played drums for Sunday morning services every week, and for Christmas specials with members of the Greenville Symphony
I taught drums at Camp IWannaRock at a church in Hickory, NC. The camp was designed to give young kids experience with leading worship
I played drums for The DeLeary's, Lauren DeLeary and Brooke DeLeary (now known as LOVECOLLIDE). We played in North Carolina, Maryland, Tennessee and other places on our tour.
I had the privilege of traveling around North America with Life Action Ministries as part of the blue team, a team of 25 people. I played the drums for the worship team and helped out with the children's ministry aspect as well.
I studied Percussion
