I have a Music Degree from Wilfrid Laurier University in Percussion Performance.
I have certificates in the following disciplines from The Royal Conservatory of Music:
--gr. 10 piano
--gr. 6 pipe organ
--university level theory, analysis & ear training.
I have performed in many community and semi-professional orchestras, concert bands, rock bands, church groups, choral groups, percussion ensembles and too many others to list.
Notables: played drums for the Four Lads (Northern Ontario tour), and played venues around Ontario with Blue Rye.
I read & write music.
Currently, I am the Percussion Coordinator for the North Bay Symphony Orchestra, play drums for The Hosts and am filling in on drums for TransparenC.
I'm also starting my own project, called Canadian Backpack.
