      Drummer from south Louisiana, Karl started playing at the young age of 8. Over his 30 plus
      years of playing and studying music, he has been privileged to share stages across the United
      States and Europe with many amazing musicians. From orchestra concert bands, jazz
      ensemble groups, church worship teams, small acoustic settings to large concert venues, he
      has learned that being a drummer is about playing for the music. "Less is more" is the
      philosophy he has behind the drum kit. "As the drummer in a band, you are the glue that holds
      everything together. It's all about the groove and playing tasteful fills in the right spot that
      compliments the rest of the band. Music is a conversation and no one likes to converse with
      someone who is always talking."

      Karl is currently the US drummer for International Blues Artist Larry Garner, south Louisiana
      based country band Vidalia, works as a freelance drummer along the Gulf Coast and also stays
      busy with standing weekly house gigs on world famous Bourbon St in New Orleans, La.

Testimonials

  • “School of Rock is the best thing we have done for our three children. They learn selfconfidence, teamwork, and musicianship in an environment that is safe and free of the typical agebarrier restrictions that are often inherent in other student activities. The youngest and oldest kids in the school work together and everyone is an equal on stage. I wish other youth activities were as welcoming.”
    - Tony C., parent, Great Valley, PA
  • “"I can't tell you what an enriching experience this has been for our whole family and especially for Josh. The instructors there were so much more than teachers for Josh, they were his idols and his role models. It has been an amazing time, and I know that as Josh gets older he will look back on all the memories he made at the SOR fondly. You have created something special there, and I hope you understand what an impact your efforts have had on the lives of these children.Thank you for everything!"”
