I am a professional Musician, Drummer, and Audio Engineer in the Western Massachusetts area. I have been playing drums since 2001 and am experienced in many styles of music including Rock, Metal, and Jazz on drum-kit and with various forms of alternative and hand percussion. After graduating from Franklin Pierce University in 2013 with a B.A. in Music Technology, I began working as a Drum and Percussion instructor and Audio Engineer at Whip City Music in Westfield MA, as well as teaching private lessons. I am experienced with both adults and children as young as six.
I provide services including
- Drum and Percussion lessons for children and adults
- Rock Band and Ensemble coaching for children and teenagers
- Recording and Audio Engineering services via Whip City Music.
Teaching my instrument has been one of the most rewarding jobs I've ever had. I am confident in my ability to communicate the form and function of my instrument to my students and to help them understand and enjoy effective practice and performance concepts. I hope to inspire a passion for music and drumming in both children and adults. I am also a problem solver, which is why I enjoy working in professional audio. Nothing is quite as satisfying as achieving that perfect mix.
