TD Drum And Surf

TD Drum And Surf



Music and life go hand and hand. Music can express the qualities of life that are difficult to express in words. Also learning a musical instrument and pieces of music developes problem solving skills that you can use in may areas of your life. Most importantly, understand that music brings people together. The sense of community developed through playing with a group or playing for people builds bonds of friendship that crush fear and hatred and spark unity and peace.

I am also an avid surfer. The past 17 years I have sufred up and down the California coast from Humboldt, San Francisco and Santa Cruz, Santa Barbara, and Ventura, LA and OC, to San Diego. Not to mention my surfing adventures thought Japan.

Lets play some music and get in the water.
