I am a graduate of Philadelphia University with over 30 years of teaching and 40 years of playing experience. Specializes in jazz, rock and swing styles. Some of the fantastic mentors I have studied with include:
Armand Santarelli, a protégé of jazz great Joe Morello, who profoundly understood the art and science of drumming.
Mel Brown, a staff drummer for the Motown Music Corporation, who recorded and toured with the Temptations, the Supremes, Smokey Robinson, Diana Ross, and many others.
I am currently playing in an original pop/rock band called Cinder Bridge. Performing is part of any musician. Please take the opportunity to check us out. Our performances typically are for non-profit organizations such as pet rescues.
A solid foundation in the fundamentals is essential to learning any instrument well. Allow me to help the drummer inside of you come out to play, or help you improve what you are already doing!
