Hi, I’m De’Arcus and I am a drum teacher in Dunwoody, GA. I was born in Jackson Mississippi and come from a very musical family. My father plays multiple instruments, produces and writes stellar award winning songs. My mother sings. I also have a brother who professionally plays drums (he gave me my first drum lessons and taught me everything I know about drums) as well as a brother who professionally plays the bass. I started playing drums in 2007 at church. In 2010 my first gig/tour was with Grammy award winning artist T-Pain. Between 2010 and 2012 I toured with R&B Artists Glenn Jones and Tony Terry, and also played for Calvin Richardson. In 2012 I was the winner of the international drum competition Hit Like a Girl. I am currently drumming for various artists, cooperate bands, and at church. These are some of the current artists that I’ve worked with: Bob, Cherelle, Klymaxx, Lil G, Chrisette Michelle, and more. I currently tour with T-Pain. I thank God for my gift.
I enjoy teaching drum lessons to students of all ages and skill levels and strive to offer a unique learning experience to each individual. My goal is to help my students gain an understanding of music and discover the joy of playing the drums.
