I am an experienced a seasoned professional on the drum kit, hand percussion, and snare drum percussion. I hold a Bachelor's degree in drum set performance from the College of Charleston in South Carolina where I studied under renowned artists Quentin Baxter and Robert Lewis. I also hold a Master's degree in Jazz Studies/Performance on the drum kit from DePaul University. I have performed with some of the midwest's most notable musicians in jazz and rock including Phil Woods, Mark Colby, Ron Perillo, Dave Miller, Herbivore, The DePaul Jazz Orchestra, and many more. I also have more than 7 years of professional teaching under my belt at some of the midwest's most notable music institutions including the Bloom School of Jazz and the Midwest Music Academy. I have taught over 500 lessons on drum set and percussion, coached numerous young rock groups, and have given Jazz and Blues clinics with the Bloom School of Jazz. I love working with children and have a lesson plan that is meant to fit each individual specifically based on their music background and goals.
