SEEKING

Band to Join, Vocalist, Rhythm Guitar, Lead Guitar, Bass Guitar, Saxophone, Keyboard, Piano.

ABOUT

Studied at Haddonfield Conservatory of Music in New Jersey. Taught private lessons while in College pursuing a business degree. Have played on and off for years but now very serious about my playing. I was taught with heavy influence on technique. I am practicing the use of basic rudiments but with slight changes to develop my own groves which have a definite influence from jazz. I like to use the double base for specific groves or fill but also know the need to not play double bass at all for certain music. Would consider joining a band or forming one but would have to be the right situation.
