About Branden

Branden is the current drummer and a key songwriter for an internationally touring band. He started his touring career in 2003 and has completed several North American tours as well as trips overseas to Southeast Asia, Europe, the UK and Australia. Branden is known for his double bass pedal and hand technique, and for using the drums as an integral part of the melody within the band’s multi-meter and multi-dimensional songs.

Branden has been involved in music his whole life. Coming from a musical family, he started studying percussion at age 7 at a Music Studio. Throughout his public school carrier Branden performed in the highest-level ensembles and was a key player in the high school percussion ensemble. At the end of his high school career, he was nominated by his band director to the Wisconsin Ambassadors of Music, representing the finest players in the state.

In 2014, Branden wrote and released a drum book which features downloadable play-along tracks taken straight from the recording session of that record. He then studied with a percussionist PhD who teaches at Eastern Illinios University.

While not on tour, Branden teaches private lessons (online and in person) and has recently started doing some work as a session drummer in the Madison/Milwaukee WI area.

So if you're interested in learning how to play the drum set in a fun, productive atmosphere from an experienced, easygoing instructor, please reach out!

I have been involved in music my whole life. Coming from a musical family, I started studying percussion at age 7 at the Jenks Music Studio with Yamaha Master Clinician Vicki Jenks. Throughout my public school career I performed in the highest-level ensembles and was a key player in the high school percussion ensemble. At the end of my high school career, I was nominated by my band director to the Wisconsin Ambassadors of Music, representing the finest players in the state. I've been touring internationally/recording with several bands since 2002. I started teaching private drum lessons in 2009, online and in person.
