ABOUT

Now retired from teaching drums and percussion, but miss playing. I play drum kit, congas, timbales, djembe, frame drums, doumbek, cajon, udu, electronic drums, toys - all to a high standard.

I can sight read or improvise to a high standard. I can play accurately to a click.

I have a basic home studio, where I dabble with recording and composition, soundtracks, backing tracks, library tracks etc.
