Hi, I'm Jim. I have been interested in music for as long as I can remember. I gravitated early on to the drums....because let's face it, drums are undoubtedly the coolest! I've been playing the drums for over 20 years and my experiences range from everything between concert and orchestral percussion, marching percussion, to rock/pop/jazz/country and commercial styles for drum set. I marched in a world class drum and bugle corps; the Crossmen in 1997 and 1999. It was the most challenging and rewarding experience of my life! I then went on to study jazz and commercial music for drum-set performance at DU's Lamont school of music. I've toured the country as well as Western Europe in all sorts of different musical ensembles. I am also a multi-instrumentalist. I am proficient on piano and bass guitar as well as drums. I am unashamedly, a music theory nerd. I love to write, compose, and record my music. Often times playing all the instruments and vocals myself! My teaching style approaches the drums from a very musical and comprehensive perspective. I am currently accepting students on Wednesdays at Allegro Music, right here in beautiful Parker, CO
