ABOUT

I am 26 years old and I've been playing music on several instruments for about 17 years. I am currently looking for only paid studio and live work on drum set and guitar. I have been rehearsing and recording with a click track for more than ten years. I can analyze and write using music theory, although I can not sight read. I can read chord charts and catch on to melodic and/or rhythmic changes quickly, although I have not learned to use Nashville notation (but I am sure I could learn it before a session if necessary).

Thanks for checking out my page!

PS You can shoot me an e-mail at srsrecordings on .
