     pace and gives them both optimism and continued interest in learning to read, write and perform like a professional


    I began my music interests at age 10, learning to play the clarinet while in grade school. It was at the age of 12  I discovered the drums.  A group of musicians were visiting my school and performed for the students. The energy I felt from their performance immediately led me to pursue becoming a drummer. Since I began, I have had the privilege of studying under some of the finest drum instructors and musicians known worldwide, such as, Ralph Humphrey, David Garibaldi, Ed Shaughnessy and Freddy Gruber. My performances have taken me all over the world...from Los Angeles to the Jamaican Ocho Rios Jazz Festivals. I have performed in jazz trios, quartets and big bands, as well as, dance bands with horns. The techniques that were taught to me in my formative years, and my personal understanding of what a student yearns to learn, have allowed me to advance many aspiring student drummers to levels far exceeding their expectations.
