WHAT INSPIRES YOU?
My students inspire me daily. Their voracious curiosity and genuine passion for learning and performing music is a constant reminder of why I began this journey in the first place.
WORDS OF WISDOM FOR THE NEXT GENERATION OF DRUMMERS
Find teachers and mentors that you respect and put your trust into them fully. Work hard, trust the process, and be kind to yourself and to others.
FAVORITE ZILDJIAN CYMBAL/COMBO
I love the K Symphonic and K Constantinople lines for a vast majority of the repertoire. However, the Classic Orchestral line provides a brilliant and bright sound for pops shows, including the music of John Williams.
