Hi everybody! Here’s a brand new promo clip where I talk about my career, my drumming, my teaching and more. The clip has been shot by Marc-André Cloutier who did a terrific job. Go check it out and share it to your friends. Thanks for watching.

Good news, I’ve been added to the Vic Firth Educational Team. You’ll be able to read articles that I’ll eventually write for them and some other collaborations.
You can see my profile on Vic Firth’s website here:
I’m very proud to tell you that my first text has now been published in the august 2013 edition of Modern Drummer magazine. I share exercises based on the groove Steve Gadd played on the tune “Sicily” by Chick Corea. My text is even mentionned on the cover as “12 samba grooves”. Needless to say, I’m very proud of that as I’ve been reading the magazine since I was a teen. The magazine is in stores right now so go get a copy and have fun reading it.
And here’s a video where I show how to play the exercises:
Hi guys! My first text for canadian drum magazine is now published. It is called “Practicing Efficiently” and can be read on pages 28 and 29 on the link below. Happy reading!
Bonus, my latest educational video:
Hello everybody! I recently added some new clips to my youtube page. You can see them by following the link underneath.
Here’s a clip where I’m improvising some grooves with my brand new Gretsch Catalina Club jazz kit. It has much more bottom end than what we could expect from a small kit like that.
In that clip, I’m playing the first three pages of the Stick Control book. For those of you who don’t know that book, it’s really worth checking as it’s full of good exercises for drummers
I started exploring the possibilities of playing the well known 5-6-7 strokes rolls by using single strokes instead of the usual double strokes. This routine can be found in Alan Dawson’s Rudimental Ritual.
I’ll be publishing soon a text for canadian drum magazine, Drums Etc. where I’ll be talking about ways to improve our practice sessions. I hope that you’ll find this information valuable to you and that it’ll help you be more effective when you spend time behind your kit. I’ll let you know as soon as I get a date of publication, hopefully soon. Take care and keep practicing!
I hope you’ve spent awesome holidays and that you got to be close to the ones you love. I hope that this new year will be full of music and drums for you all.
To start off this year, here’s a live clip by one of my bands, Sharcüt. We played a show in December at the Divan Orange and this is a short excerpt of that performance. Hope you’ll like it.
See you soon!
Hi there! I’ve been listening to Adele’s cd “21″ for a while now and I think she’s absolutely fantastic. Great voice with great songs. I had noticed that the song “I’ll Be Waiting” had a pretty good drum beat played by the great Ash Soan (I think?). Here’s my version. Hope you like it.
Hi! I had the chance to be interviewed for Dan Shinder’s website. We cover different subjects like my influences, the bands I’m playing with, teaching and more. You’ll be able to view this interview on his website really soon.
I wrote a blog entry for Modern Drummer’s website where I talk the latest Sharcüt EP. I mostly explain where I got the ideas for the different rhythms in our compositions. You can also follow the link in the bottom of the page to download freely our EP. Hope you’ll like it.
