"Greatness happens when I sit behind the piano" Humble is what i have to be because the beast inside me is uncontrollable.

10+ years Piano
10+ years Drumming
7 years Mixing and Editing
10+ years Sax

I am willing to work anytime any day. Positive Vibes and I specialize in piano chord structure. An ear for hearing the best at hand. I have been playing music since the age of 9. Started on the drums and by age 11 I moved on to the alto sax. Here comes high school and its time to explore other instruments. The summer before high school I fell in love with the piano and began to experiment with brass instruments to see what fits best for me. By the time graduation comes, I'm well rounded in sheet music, brass instruments and 3 different types of saxophones.
