Featured teacher of the month!
We are so excited to welcome Emerson to our team! Emerson Riedler has been playing drums for over 12 years. During his career, Emerson studied privately with John Owens (drummer for Brown Brigade and Professors of Funk) for many years where he learned and built a solid foundation of groove and technicality!
Emerson has been performing live music as early as elementary school! As a live session musician, Emerson often plays as a house drummer for open mics/jams in the Whitby/Oshawa area (you can find him at the Atria every Tuesday holding down the beat for local musicians!). Emerson also drummed for and was a founding member of an original band, Circle of Circles. Circle of Circles placed as a finalist at the Bowmanville Battle of the Bands and has performed at multiple festivals and venues in the GTA such as the Bowmanville Ribfest.
With Emerson's extensive performing experience, he has made a great asset to our school and our young and upcoming drummers. He absolutely in love with playing drums and is super excited to share is love and craft of this instrument to his students!
