- Ian -
Ian is originally from Rochester, New York, and began playing drums in 3rd grade. He joined his elementary school band as a snare drum player and fell into drums very naturally, as his Dad was a touring drummer in NYC. Ian played in regular band and jazz ensemble from 3rd to 8th grade, and in high school, he joined the percussion ensemble, where he expanded his percussion abilities to include xylophone, mallets, timpani, and more.
High school was filled with incredible experiences, as Ian's percussion ensemble competed in various competitions across the East Coast. He also competed in NYSSMA (New York State School Music Association), earning a perfect score on snare drum and a seat on the all-state band.
