My strong side is heavy and extreme music. I play music genres that are focused around metal and hardcore. I have practiced my drumming skills for 15 years. During this time I have played with more than 10 metal and hardcore groups. I have composed music, recorded 4 studio albums, and had many concerts. For me, music is a path to freedom.
I believe that each person can reach the maximum of his potential with enough effort put in the right way. For you drumming can be a hobby or a way of life but in any case, I will share with you all of my experience and I can help you reach your target faster. The goal is reached with persistence, not with speed.
How long have you been involved in music and how did you decide to start?
I try to play what I hear from 6-7 years old. How did I decide to start? I didn't decide, I was just drawn to it and once I started, I never stopped. Maybe I was inspired by the music I listened to and that prompted me to play. But I was too young to call it a rational solution.
Which song do you remember most vividly from your childhood?
Terence Trent D'Arby - Delicate feat. Des'ree
Who are the artists you have listened to and played the most?
I listened to Metallica and Rammstein the most as a child. As an adult, there are too many to point out as more basic. I've never played music invented by other people, I've always thought that playing covers is a waste of time, unless it's for educational purposes, to get to know this author.
In which musical style are you most advanced?
In metal, but gradually I'm starting to get out of it.
What does music give you?
When I listen to it, it brings me fun. When I play - concentration and understanding of myself.
Why did you decide to start teaching music?
Because I saw that people achieve results as a result of my advice and from there I enjoyed doing it.
What is the most important thing to learn in music?
In music and in life, the most important thing is to be honest with yourself and admit the truth. To observe, analyze and be critical of yourself. If he does not do this, man does nothing, he is no different from the animal.
What is RockSchool for you?
A place where I can tell the truth at least a little more than elsewhere.
Which music is valuable to you?
The one that came spontaneously and was not created intentionally, for a purpose. But since this cannot be measured, I think it is a matter of personal preference.
What's the most extravagant thing you've heard lately?
The silence. For most people, this is a luxury. Not because they don't have it, but because they can't remember.
Do you have a dream related to music?
With music exactly - no. I will create a video training in which I will put everything I know. It is more about mastering the drums as an instrument. The ability to play and the ability to express yourself are two different things. Many people can play, few people can express themselves - we have to learn from them.
