I’m an extremely passionate educator and performer with over 20 years of playing experience and 17 years teaching experience. I have toured and recorded with national acts who’s music was showcased and featured in the best “up and coming” drummers in the area. Recently, my guitar program has created a huge buzz throughout the local communities as well. Hence, my iimpact on the local music scene has been a tremendous one.
