Check out my drumming videos /chmiller912

I am originally from North Carolina but moved to San Diego to attend UCSD. I am an avid musician and have a passion for drumming. I also play guitar are write/produce music.

Early on in my drumming career I was influenced by faster rock/punk/ska music: ASG, Blink 182, Strung out, AFI, Goldfinger. I then started listening to some metal: Metallica, Between the Buried and Me, As I Lay Dying, Protest the Hero, Mastadon. These early influences helped me develop my speed, endurance, and double bass footwork. I also purchased instructional DVDs by Ray Luzier and Kenny Aronoff to enhance my repertoire of interesting fills and drum progressions. In college I started listening to alot of reggae/funk/world music which expanded my drumming skills by allowing me to focus on slowing things down. I learned how important it was to make the groove feel good and leave some open space in my playing. I lived in San Diego for the last 7 years and played in a local band called CounterPoint Culture for 5 years. I moved back to NC in January of 2015 to pursue a doctorate in physical therapy. I am now living in Wilmington NC and am looking for a new musical project or some talented musicians to jam with.
