Teaching has always been a huge passion of mine and I love getting to sit down and share some knowledge while also getting to know everyone and chat in general! Excited to hang this summer!

Drum Technique & Performance 

My workshop will include exercises I use to help my own technique that helps me excel in my performances, and related demonstrations of the written parts in our songs. It will will be open to any questions at the end that could pertain to drum performance, song demonstrations, and/or anything involving touring in general!

Florida-based artist Jake Garland is drummer for the band Memphis May Fire. He played drums and percussion throughout middle school, and he continued into high school while also marching snare drum for three years. Jake then went to the University of Central Florida for a year for a bachelor of arts in music degree, also marching snare in the band there. In 2010 Jake joined the band Memphis May Fire.
