My teaching method is based upon helping budding musicians develop their own style. I am a firm believer in pulling from all genres throughout history to create a technique that defines what "your sound" is. I also believe that music has no limit, and that nothing is out of bounds. Most importantly, I believe that music should always be fun, and if you can make it fun, it will be a lifelong partner through life.
Music is an experience, one that is not only facilitated by the musician, but also those collaborating to craft the finished product. Not only am I able to create the product as a musician, but also through my time at Warner Music Group and Belmont University, I have learned how to develop and market that experience as an engineer, a songwriter, a publisher, and an entrepreneur.
I have played Drums, Bass, & Guitar for over 10 years; I have also collaborated on a multitude of projects in various genres including: Rock, Punk, Jazz, Folk, Americana, and Hip-Hop.
In the summer of 2017 I took on the role of Royalty administrator at Warner Music Group at their Center of Excellence, shared services department. Here, I am responsible for:
•Calculating and paying royalties to recording artists, producers, and other third parties;
•Calculating the net profits earned by joint ventures between WMG’s record labels and external parties and then paying those external parties their contractual shares of such profits;
•Calculating and paying monies due to labor unions pursuant to the terms of the collective bargaining agreements between such unions and the applicable WMG record labels that are signatories to those agreements.
During my time at Belmont University (2013-2017) I learned how to operate numerous consoles including the Neve VR, Neve 8078, API 2098, SSL 9000 K and Avid S6; with experience in both the analog and digital realm on the Studer A827 tape machine, Protools 10-12/HD, and Logic X. I have mastered the current suite of UA and Waves plugins. Working as an assistant engineer as well as an intern at OMNISound Studios in Nashville & The Barber Shop Studios in Northern NJ afforded me the opportunity to learn about the recording process, master my craft as an audio engineer, and gave me a look inside business in the New York City/ Greater Metropolitan area.
