ABOUT YOUR GUIDE:
AAron is an acclaimed master drummer who is known for mesmerizing and revitalizing his audience with his unique and fluent style of drumming.
Hailing from Kingston, Jamaica, AAron began his drumming career at the tender age of six. His natural talent for delivering electrifying performances caught the eyes of Rita Marley (wife of Reggae icon Bob Marley), who granted him the Rita Marley Foundation Scholarship to further his drum studies at The Noyam Institute of West African Dance and Drumming, in Ghana, Africa. It was at this point that he deeply discovered the unspoken language of the drum, its ability to create inclusivity and promotesocial, physical and mental well-being.
Inasmuch as AAron loves performing on stage, he also has a passion for using drums as a form of healing and rehabilitation. In 2017 and 2018, he conducted a series of drumming workshops through the University of Arizona's Upbeat Outreach Program. AAron also teaches holistic drumming to autistic children, who enjoy this new means of self-expression and communication. One of his most gratifying moments was witnessing one of his autistic students who had never spoken for years, begin doing so after only three (3) sessions of holistic drumming. His after-school drumming program, Drum Nation, has also been integrated in the curriculum of a few middle schools in Los Angeles.
AAron's approach is influenced by his spiritual background and culture where he uses specific West African /Jamaican drum rhythms that foster empowerment and promote spiritual well-being. AAron also provides family drum healing sessions for a few celebrities in Los Angeles.
