2020 and 2021 are pivotal years as they mark the opening of a long-time dream of mine, as this time marks the foundation of my own drum studio, and what arise today is “Thrive Drumming!”I have been involved with Music since I was ten years old and music has given me over forty years of joy!
I have performed in numerous musical settings from club bands in all styles, to musical theatre shows, percussion ensembles, drum circles, symphonic and wind ensemble concerts. These various musical genres have allowed me to perform in venues and studios ranging from CBGB’s in NYC to Carnegie Hall, Baby Monster Studios in NYC, touring Scandinavia with The Original Broadway Farewell Tour of “A Chorus Line”, and countless small clubs and backyards along the way, truly anywhere music can be performed.
I have been an instructor of drum-set and percussion for thirty years. I graduated from SUNY Purchase with a B.F.A and Stony Brook University with an M.M.
Currently, I have been playing live with an especially fun and tight group of musicians in “Shaky Ground” and I have recently been performing and recording with an original music project- the hard rockin’ Christian band “The Blameless Project”, and the new acoustic quartet, “Billy and The Generators”, under the direction of founder Bill J. Need-less to say when 2020 and 2021 finally get rolling again I will be a busy and happy drumming man!
