I started playing drums when I was around 5 years old. Guitar at age 16, bass in my 20s. Music is one of the greatest gifts from God!
My first teaching gig came when I was 17 years old, so I've been teaching over 20 years! (How did that happen...) Since 2005, I've been fortunate to teach in several local settings like Catawba College, Salisbury Academy, and North Rowan High School (to name a few). This picture is from 2012 at North Hills Christian School.
I also enjoy playing for various area shows. This is from the Meroney Theater's "One Man, Two Guv'nors" (2015). Yes, I'm playing a washboard.
