I have BA in Music - University Of Southern California (Jazz Studies) 4 years drum set as my main instrument. In school I studied with Steve Houghton, Ndugu Chancelor, and Greg Field. I drummed professionally for 5 years with Dwight Kennedy and all his bands. Weddings, casuals, theme parks, and private corporate events. Many styles of music...big band, jazz, Latin, rock, dixieland, R&B, blues, and anything else you can think of.
Now, I mainly do session work on the drums.
I have been a professional Guitar Teacher 14 years (all private clients). I learned how to play the guitar at age 10. Since then I have been in too many professional groups to mention in this space. I play bass guitar every bit as well as well as a six string. As a guitar player, I make a living doing session work for PerfecTune Productions, Telepictures (Warner Bros.), Beacon St. Studios, Firehouse Studios and many more. I am obsessed with the guitar as an instrument. I also build guitars as a hobby.
