I'm a 20-year old musician/teacher from Fort Myers, Florida. I recently secured a position to march with this summer with the Boston Crusaders Drum and Bugle Corps. This has been something that I've worked dreamed about ever since I first picked up a pair of drum sticks in the fifith grade.
Since then, I've practiced and performed with many different mentors, peers, and ensembles. My experiences with concert repertoire, jazz ensemble, honor bands, marching band, indoor drum line, and personal music groups have helped me develop my percussion skills in an eclectic way.
In addition to honing my art, I've been studying how to instruct others to achieve musical excellence. I have my associates degree from Edison State College and took a large part this curriculum at Florida Gulf Coast University. I have been a drum instructor at North Fort Myers High School for two seasons and plan on being with the group as long as I'm in the area. Teaching the students at North has been the most rewarding experience of my life thus far.
