  • WHAT INSPIRES YOU?

    My family. Innovation, how every generation learns the methods/experiences of the previous generations, and then innovate with new possibilities.

  • WORDS OF WISDOM FOR THE NEXT GENERATION OF DRUMMERS

    In my opinion it is very important to learn the history and development of your instrument, and be able to reproduce it (play it), this will give you a deeper sense on your playing, and when it's time to innovate and do your own thing, there will be a deep sense, sound of awareness and meaning. Anything you do, do it to the highest level and have fun while doing it.

  • FAVORITE ZILDJIAN CYMBAL/COMBO
