"I have been playing the drum set since the early 2000's and for me the love of drums and music has become an energizing source of inspiration. Through music I have had the chance to live and work with creative individuals while learning from others and bettering myself. My mission as an instructor is to empower people of any age to learn the drums as a creative discipline that can become a passion for the rest of their lives."
