CAREER HIGHLIGHTS: When I started teaching my daughters how to play drums in middle and high school. That experience opened up the door to start teaching percussion to high school students – 10 years later and I still enjoy sharing my love of music.
FAVORITE SABIAN CYMBAL: I love them all – from HHX to HH and AAX, they all have their place. When I am playing rock, jazz, worship or country music, I can always find the right sound with SABIAN.
