I am a full range percussionist that can play anything from four mallets to drum set; from orchestral to hand drumming, and everything in between. I also am able to compose or arrange my own custom pieces, and I know many musicians that I can team up with to create small, unique, and customizable ensembles.
Price Range: $150 and up.
