I began playing Drums at the age of 14. When I was 21, I attended the Percussion Institute of Technology in Hollywood and graduated a year later with HONORS. After graduation, I played on many Demo Recordings and with many live acts in Los Angeles and beyond. One of the keyboardists I played with, Greg Beaumont, later hired me as a Digital Sound Design Assistant. We worked on animated shows such as Sonic the Hedgehog to Warner Bros. Pinky and the Brain, Batman Beyond, and many other productions. From 2004 to the present I taught Drums in Los Angeles and Ventura counties. I now live in Costa Mesa and love Orange County.
I know many styles of Drumming, but for instruction I focus on Rock, Groove, Jazz and Latin. I also instruct and perform on MIDI and Electronic Drums. My students range from children to adults and I have a friendly, fun approach to teaching. I do very well at teaching technique and rudiments to beginning students; as well as breaking down playing and instructing more advanced players.
