Hi there, I am as experienced session musician based in South East England(London), also interested in joining bands.
I practice everyday without a doubt and absolutely love music, I am 100% focused and dedicated to music and am sure I can achieve whatever is required of me as a session and band musician.
I have been a dedicated and passionate musician since the age of 6, when I took up the drums. Since then I have received expert teaching for well over a decade, which allowed me to pass Rock School Grade 8 at age 12 and has given me an extensive knowledge in the instrument and in playing all genres of music after studying and completing both 'Dave Hassel book of world music' books. If you need a solid, confident drummer to serve the music and reach whatever is required, I am your man. Experience: Concerts, festivals, some tours around Europe, shows, musicals, pantomimes, and studio recordings, all across the country, and for a number of years. I have played with award winning artists such as John Galea, and have played 3 sold out shows at Wembley SSE Arena for a full cast Carols production to 38k plus people. I also have lots of social media experience on this instrument from my Youtube and Instagram account. Attracting hundreds of views to each upload.
I also compose to a professional standard, having my own Instagram, Youtube, Soundcloud and pages where I upload my own compositions in the form of music videos all edited, recorded and produced by me to hundreds of viewers. I compose in many different genres such as, Funk, Pop, Latin, Jazz, Contemporary, Hip-Hop, and even Classical, using the software Logic Pro X. I love upbeat funky/latin music that has high energy dance elements to it, that gets people feeling good and up on their feet, that is my preferred composing genre, though I am also capable of composing in many others as listed above.
I am also a very capable and confident pianist having studied classical piano for a number of years, I have also studied and played lots of contemporary and Jazz music. I have attracted a lot of attention with this instrument due to the amount I have learnt in such a short time, without any lessons. I am comfortable playing any kind of keyboard as well as acoustic pianos of all kinds.
Experience: many gigs, and social media attraction such as Instagram and YouTube. I have also played in the annual 'Tour Music Fest', accompanying a professional singer, we got through to the finals and were highly favoured amongst hundreds of other contestants.
I have been playing the guitar(acoustic/electric) since the age of 8 and have played intensively and passionately since then, passing Rock School Grade 8 at age 16. I am comfortable and confident on this instrument and have a great ability to serve the music. Experience: many gigs, playing with bands and taking solos, and social media attraction from Youtube and Instagram music accounts.
My bass guitar playing follows on from my guitar playing, I still have some gig experience on this instrument as well as social media experience from my Youtube and Instagram pages, and can play confidently what is required.
My singing I have only recently taken up but can hit notes well due to having perfect pitch and can sing what is required.
