ABOUT

Experienced drummer in a wide range of styles from Rock to Jazz to Latin music and all things in between. I like playing a variety to keep things interesting and to continue growing as a musician. I am classically trained through symphonic bands when I was young and continued into marching bands to build chops while playing in jazz bands and the pit to get more variety. Have also played with a few rock bands for fun and gigging but want to get involved with a more steady group. Or in the meantime, simply hookup with some great musicians to jam along the way!

Looking for a group of like-minded individuals who have realistic expectations for practicing, jamming and gigging regularly. miller dot kyle dot s at g mail for com
