Drummer
Manchester

Ever since picking up my first pair of sticks at age 10, I have done nothing but want to play drums. I have 14 years of extensive performing experience ranging from Latin percussion, orchestral concerts at the Bridge Water Hall to rock and metal gigs with countless bands all over the UK. I am also a well established peripatetic drum tutor, having taught year 7 students and organizing them into bands at university. I have been gigging consistently in rock bands at a wide range of venues since age 13. I can play all genres, covers or originals. I am all about gigs! I specialized in performing at the University of Salford in which I greatly expanded my range of genres, honed my technical skills, taught drum kit to secondary school pupils and developed my knowledge of recording by tracking my own songs in my university's recording studios. I am very passionate about performing and teaching drums. Having played in multiple bands, ranges of percussion and previous teaching experience places me in an ideal position to understand what it takes to put on the best performance possible. I am confident, hard-working, dependable and dedicated to providing a fun and worthwhile experience. Can play to click track live, have full gear, can travel far. My years of gigging all types of genres and venues and extensive repertoire guarantee you will get a good solid drummer. The best feeling in the world in when the crowd are digging your music and that's exactly what I strive for! In my spare time I work on my own songs where I also play guitar and sing.
