Whether it was tapping his fingers on a table or opening for Joe Lynn Turner, Ethan Leff could always be found drumming. Starting at the young age of nine, Ethan began his career in Manhattan, New York, eventually performing at Alice Tully Hall at the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts. To further his skills, he fully immersed himself into multiple music programs such as School of Rock and, eventually, The Collective School of Music.
Ethan attended Berklee College of Music in Boston, where, in May 2019, he earned his degree in Drum Set Performance. Having studied with Mike Heller, Jim Stinnett, Jackie Santos, Dave DiCenso, and Skip Hadden over the years, Ethan has developed the skill set to play for various artists, groups, and styles.
In addition to continuing his studies, Ethan currently participates in multiple studio recording projects and plays for the Boston-based bands Fuzzy Bumble and the Houston Bernard Band.
