I started to play drums at 10 years old and have been performing since age 12. I keep myself in regular performance practice and work with many different artists in the area. I am a keen drummer witha passion for teaching; I also play guitar and many other instruments. This is particularly useful as I can "jam" along with my students and help them simulate real life performing.
