ABOUT

I am a drummer/percussionist/educator working in the Chicago-land area. As a private instructor for drums and percussion, I welcome all ages and skill levels. Contact me for details and rates. As a performer, I specialize in drumset and hand percussion in modern American music such as rock, blues, R&B and jazz styles. I'm also quite familiar with many Latin American and a few African styles. A Berklee graduate since 99', I have performed and recorded in Chicago and way beyond with many artists in a wide range of styles
