I have been playing drums now for 12 years but started music early in life at he age of 7. I first learnt euphonium and played that for many years, after playing in a marching band for a couple of years along with my music taste changing, I liked the idea of taking up drums so I started learning when I was 13.
I have played in a variety of bands over the years, these range from trash/death metal to big band and classical.
I am currently playing in 2 local bands, one does Metal the other Country Rock. As well as playing kit I also play Cajon and have been for 6-7 months.
After playing in so many bands over the years I want to Inspire and pass on my knowledge to any budding drummers, and show them playing drums is an extremely rewarding and fun experience.
