Jimmy has been playing music since early elementary school. He studied drums for nearly 10 years before teaching privately. He is not only an outstanding drummer, but he is also a wonderful teacher! Jimmy’s other loves include playing Banjo, Ukulele, and other Bluegrass/Folk instruments. He has attended many festivals, clinics, and other seminars to further his music education. He teaches Scruggs’ “three finger pick style” which he has learned from many great pickers, including Earl Scruggs himself!
A banjo playing drummer may seem strange to some, but Jimmy has played with several local bands and has been teaching privately for several years now. He is currently working on his Associates degree in liberal arts at Northern Virginia Community College.
