Drawing from his education at KoSa and Berklee College of Music, Carson has over 17 years of real-world drumming experience. These experiences have ranged from performing with a polka band in tiny restaurants to playing in Red Oblivion on gigantic stages around the world. During college, he became known as the metal drummer who specialized in playing with rock cello players. This led to being one of the founding members of Red Oblivion. Red Oblivion went on to play 5 Lollapalooza festivals, South by Southwest, Vive Latino, and many cities in Spain.
In his teaching, Carson emphasizes relaxation, injury prevention, and technique. He focuses on starting to learn music at slow tempos to build muscle memory and avoid sloppiness at speed. He happily teaches people of all ages, 7+. Carson teaches drum set, hand pan, djembe, conga, and classical snare drum.Sign Up For Lessons
