WHAT INSPIRES YOU?

My first idol drummer is Ian Paice from "DEEP PURPLE". After I started studying under Kozo Suganuma, I have been interested in Jazz and Fusion music. Now I love listening to Chick Corea, Michel Camilo, Dave Weckl and " Weather Report".

WORDS OF WISDOM FOR THE NEXT GENERATION OF DRUMMERS

I can say nothing because I still have a lot to learn to be an ideal drummer. Because I can do, you can make it too, I think.
