I am a creative and motivated musician of 20 years, beginning Conservatory piano at the age of 6 my musical passion was ignited. I moved on to the drums at age 10 and have been dedicated ever since. In later years I developed my craft and became eager to share it with others. After years of working as a semi-professional drummer I have realized that I will always be a student of music and it is important to share rather than conceal. I take a very physical approach to the drums. Posture and the drum kit set up are crucial first step. My second priority is confidence; everybody learns differently and proving that it is possible in the early stages I believe, will make you want to be a better musician.
