About Me

ME5.jpg

My name is Ryan Claxton and I have been playing drums for the past 16 years. 

As an educator, It's my goal to inspire and motivate students to want to exceed their potential as a drummer, while having the most fun in the process. If you would like to know more, click HERE.

As a touring musician and session player, I have gained great insight on what it means to be a professional in a band setting, and in the studio, and I have picked up great practice and performance tips along the way.
