ABOUT

I am a highly motivated and skilled drummer and percussionist with a comprehensive background in live performance.Having had more than 16 years of musical experience,I am equipped with a superb musical ear and outstanding improvisational skills.Along with being an amiable and charismatic person,I am also an extremely versatile and dedicated musician.I have over 10 years of involvement in various bands and ensemble as well as en extensive background.I am an enthusiastic team player who accepted coaching graciously and quickly incorporates feedback into performance. A drummer is a musician who is an expert at playing the drum set.This is a percussion instrument typically composed of a bass drum, ride cymbal, crash cymbal, tom-toms and hi hats.Drummers are integral to any band because they are responsible for the rhythm of the song.Thus, they play the role of “timekeeper” by generating the beat and timing of the song for other band members to follow.Without an excellent sense of timing, drummers are not going to make the rest of the members perform at their best. Worse,they may even ruin the song.Keeping the tempo of the song is just one of the responsibilities of a drummer when they play for a band.They may also need to embellish the song during live performances.
