Drum lessons are a dime a dozen. Spend 15 minutes on Facebook or YouTube and you'll come across about 30 drummers demonstrating the same paradiddle exercises. You'll also find famous drummers shredding you right into doubting your ability to progress in your skills . . .
There aren't many things that I am more thankful for than coming across a good quality tutorial that solves an issue for me, or demonstrates a highly functional approach to accomplishing a useful task that benefits me. However, I have to admit it's difficult finding unambiguous tutorials . . .
At some point in time I believe that all entertainers have some aspiration of working professionally. Being a pro requires that you be a great at what you do — that's a given. Having said that, you should now know that success entails about 15% ability and 85% of everything else . . .

Professional recording for the drum tracks that you need. I record ready-to-use stereo tracks that are fully mixed and mastered on my end. All you need to do is adjust the volume in your mix. However, I also provide you with all of the individual tracks for the entire kit if you need that kind of control in the mixing process on your end. It's where the best of two worlds collide to give you exactly what you need.
Professionally recorded voice tracks for the spoken word. Virtually unlimited voice styles for everything from cartoons to documentaries and everything in between. If you need a voice for any occasion, I'm your guy.
I am a self-taught drummer. As a matter of fact, I am a self-taught everything related to music, as I have never had any private instruction or schooling for anything music related. Such learning certainly had its pros and cons. While it took me a lot longer to learn things, it was definitely instrumental in creating my personal style that set me apart & kept me in demand.
There's a story behind the sheer simplicity of my studio. It was a mission of necessity that morphed into an obsession. But not an unhealthy obsession. More like an intense focus on achieving a goal. Create a studio with the least amount of gear, in the smallest confines imaginable, but achieve a killer sound. Oh, and still put together a standout drum kit that would be better suited to a much larger space.
I was blessed with the ability to create pretty much any voice that I want. Surprisingly, I did not discover this until about half way through my music career. Throughout my life, my sense of humor naturally utilized different voices, but it wasn't until one of my close friends said to me one day, "Dude, you should have done voices for cartoons and commercials and stuff." So, that got me thinking and I embarked on consciously creating different voices. With my connections in the industry, I gradually started getting voice work, which launched a secondary career for me.
Aside from my session work, I have been very fortunate to tour and record with many incredible musicians and vocalists over the years.
I'd like to share some of these favorite recordings that I have been blessed to be a part of on the drum kit, as well as some that I have had the pleasure of also producing and co-writing. I hope that you'll give them a listen. Enjoy!
