Hey! I'm Mark-Anthony - a drummer, percussionist and producer from Kingston, Jamaica. I've been a professional drummer and percussionist for over 10 years, playing and recording many different styles in studio sessions, classrooms and large stages. I'm excited to share my experiences and knowledge of drum styles, genres like reggae, dub, American gospel, pop and a few good and effective ways to play percussion - anything from shakers, cabasas, tambourines, blocks or triangles to hand drums like the kete, djembe, conga, dun dun and the cajon. I also specialize in Reggae and West African drum rhythms. Looking forward to meeting you!
Is soloing that thing you just can't seem to get? Or maybe coordination, to get your hands and feet moving when you want them to? Have you ever wanted to grasp those crazy hi-hat swings in reggae music or get different tones from your hand drums? I've learned drums and percussion a few different ways over the years and I know what makes me comfortable. Whether you're advanced and want new chops, fills and rudiments or this will be your first ever lesson as a beginner, let me help you. If you want to learn from conversation, practical examples and recorded material, then let's make it happen while making you comfortable. I teach kids, teens and adults and i'll make sure these lessons are as unique as you are and move at your pace.
