The body is a naturally rhythmic, and I believe in making music learning accessible and fun. The key to my philosophy is understanding the unique ways the voice and body can be used embody a rhythm. Whether it is understanding the multitude of rhythms on a drumkit, djembe, tabla, conga or even beatbox, my training allows students to traverse with ease across a multitude of percussive instruments.
Making lessons fun and engaging, I work with students to bring their rhythm to the next level. Catering to an individual's unique style and music preference, my lessons allow for growth in students ability to read, perform and improvise in their given musical genre. Teaching the cultural significance behind world rhythms is also a part of my practice, to allow for students to understand the context behind a beat.
Rhythm is universal and all musicians can grow from understanding the exciting world of drums!
I have a BFA in Music from Simon Fraser University. I was trained in Drum Kit since the age of eighteen. I went on to study world drumming which lead to African Drumming. In 2005 I took an extensive study travel to Ghana W. Africa to study their traditional drumming techniques at the University of Ghana. My training includes four years of studying tabla under Sanjay Varma, a pupil of the Punjabi school trained under Ustad Zakir Hussain. I am currently completing my Masters in Fine Arts from Simon Fraser University in British Columbia.
Having the chance to perform on stages such as the Drake Hotel, Sony Centre and many stages across Canada, has given me the unique experience to share music as a student and touring performer. Having taught drum workshops at festivals and non-profit organizations, I have a background in teaching large groups and individuals. With about 20 world drums at my home studio, I have built a reputation as a go-to artist in the city for percussion and recording. With experience as a producer, I can help students translate their drumming dreams into recorded music. With composition and production as some my supplementary training, I have been able to teach numerous students of taking of their skills into the studio.
