Not company owned or operated, I stand to provide music education at exactly what that means - teaching music. Not just notes or rhythm, but the true meaning behind music. Although I have trained classically for over 16 years and am well versed in reading music and the like, i’ve learned to put far more emphasis on not only reading music, but playing as it was intended. This is a knowledge I intend to pass down to my students.

As a lifelong musician, I have an affinity for spreading the knowledge of musical integrity. When I was just 4 years old, my brother taught me how to play the drums, and I have not given up my first love since. However, as many musicians seek to achieve, I wanted to master other instruments; I know am fluent in guitar and drums (or any percussion instrument) and can and have intensively trained people to master these art forms at a pace that best suits them. I grew up playing drums in a church band and learned a lot of what I understand musically from this upbringing. However, I am also heavily involved in a band named Handsomebeast in H ... View Profile
