Band to Join.


I am a drummer and percussionist with over 15 years experience playing and recording different styles of music. I have an enthusiastic outlook, attention to detail, exceptional interpersonal skills, a desire to learn, develop and always contribute to a positive working atmosphere. I like to get involved listening and giving ideas (I have lots of ideas) to help improve everything that I?m working on. I have been involved in various musical projects, productions and collaborations, utilising my knowledge and musical skills. I have tutor experience with children and teenagers using community music projects to positively influence their personal life development. I worked for two years for an educational theatre group in Brazil acting and enabling actors to use drums/percussion in their workshops with children. I have been working as a session musician in London since 2007. I am an easy going person very optimistic, passionate and 100% committed to everything I get involved with. I really like when I feel challenged in music and life. I have always tonnes of motivation to turn any obstacle into a stepping stone towards achieving my goals.
