Hi, I started playing drums when I was 15. I remember getting my first CB kit for my birthday and jamming to Holiday by Green Day, I realised from this point that I was hooked. A short while later when I was 16 I and a few friends got together and started a small time AC/DC cover band which didn’t get very far but the experience was great! At 17 I studied at Rotherham College of Arts and Technology (RCAT) for a year in which I met my drum tutor Bobby Arechiga who was a fantastic drummer and still today I remember the techniques that he taught me.
Back in 2010 when I was 18 I took a short break from drumming and went into full time employment. However back in May 2013 the urge for my instrument took hold and I was soon back behind the kit holding my sticks and loving every single minute! In these last few months I have devoted my time to learning and the outcome has been massive. I am the new drummer for a Sheffield band “The Late Knights” and started my very own YouTube drum cover channel which will be uploaded shortly.
