I started playing the drums in grade 6. My dad saw something in me and somehow managed to borrow a drum set from a friend of his for a month. I fell in love with the drums and immediately started playing in my parent’s garage band. (Yes, a literal garage band.) It was a folk/country band called “Cross Country”. (I actually think they still exist in some form or fashion in central Alberta today.)

Very soon after playing on that borrowed kit, my dad picked up a good quality kit for me from Long & McQuade in Edmonton. And believe it or not, this is the same kit I use today, although it looks nothing like it did 30 years ago. I’ve re-finished the toms and kick; I now use an Omar Hakim snare; I use Paiste cymbals; and the hardware has all been updated.

I’ve spent time on the road with different bands, I’ve spent time in different recording studios across Canada and the US, and I own a recording studio just outside of Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island. And not to mention, I’ve spent years teaching drums one on one.

Frequently Asked Questions

When does the course start and finish?
The course starts now and never ends! It is a completely self-paced online course - you decide when you start and when you finish.
Who should enroll in private lessons?
I especially love helping beginner drummers get going. I love setting beginners up for a lifetime of enjoyment and drumming. If you don't know a lot about the drums (or if you don't know ANYTHING), then this is right for you.
