Biography image

I started playing drums in 1990 at the age of 12. 6 years later I was marching Drum and Bugle Corps with the Blue Stars playing snare and touring the United States and Canada and a performance for the Olympic Torch Ceremony. Several years of Jazz studies, countless numbers of bands and recordings, a performance for VH1 Save The Music Foundation, music now on streaming devices, lots of private students as well as the percussion director for South Vermillion High School. Won a state champion marching band title in 2016 with Northview Marching Knights as a percussion tech. 2017-present I am the percussion director for South Vermillion where we have gone undefeated in percussion titles and the band won a state championship in 2018. After all of that I recently signed my contract and am an ENDORSED ARTIST with Los Cabos Drumsticks. With Students all across Indiana and the United States I also have branched out and am now offering the virtual lessons world wide. Most recent student internationally is from Dubai. Regardless of where you live we can come up with something for you. 
Now I want to help you. It doesn't matter how long or short you have been playing. I am here to help you get better, feel better and enjoy the musical journey and outlet that playing drums provides. I offer one on one lessons, in person lessons when and where available, video and virtual lessons. Each lesson is designed for you the player and does not follow a "program" or "recipe card" style of teaching. I want to help YOU get better at what YOU want to get better with your playing.
