I do solo percussion performances on many different stick and hand drums. My favorite's are vibraphone, steel drum and marimba.  I also love to play tambourine and other shakers. My favorite type of playing is improvisational. I also can sing songs as I play.
I also play with other percussionists. I coordinate drum circles. Improvisational dancers are often present.

I also love playing percussion while other's sing a song. My art is letting the singer be free to do their tune while I blend percussion. I know how to stay free of over powering the song. Styles include improvisational, jazz, folk, rock and roll, reggae and country. My favorite is an improvisational band.... So if you're an improvisational musician, singer and/or dancer, we can put a band together when I'm in your area.

A reminder to all percussionists --- remember that listening at a drum circle, or when in a band, means more than just listening to oneself and a few others. I like listening to everything in and around me, which includes the audience, sounds of nature, etc. Let the spirit have a strong say on what sound comes out.  When every percussion player in the circle totally listens to every other drummer, it's beyond words to describe the joy and feelings that come out. It's a joy of mine to play percussion sounds off as many players as possible. It's a fun challenge that makes me better. This harmony also allows audiences to enjoy more.
