Yoga Musician for classes and Workshops!
Yoga practice is taken to a new level with the addition of live drums. Each class is tailored to the feel, energy and intention of the teacher and students. Jay will flow with your teachings and create rhythms that promote a solid base for each pose or flow. There is no need for rehearsal as each class is created in the moment. The live drum soundtrack takes the place of the traditional music playlist. Jay on the Drums is emerging as one of the most sought after yoga musicians around the world.
"Jay on the Drums is an incredible force, an inspired anchor beat around which a creative parade of energy unfolds!!! He is a true joy to experience !!!”
— Shannon Paige at Om Time Yoga; Boulder, CO
“Thanks for bringing your epic sound to Riffs…..loved all your sound energy..will miss you for sure…know you’re going to rock it!”
— Shawna Schenk at Riffs Acoustic Music; San Diego, CA
“As I led the asanas, Jay followed along seamlessly to the ebb and flow of the class, bringing an extra level of energy when the class called for it, and bringing it back down to an earthy pulse as the class winded down. Teaching with Jay on the Drums was a joy for both my students and myself. Jay is very respectful of the energy of the class and recognizes his role as an accompanist, rather than taking over the class with his agenda. He is there to bring a higher level of vibration to the class, which he does! I am already looking forward to the next time I can work with Jay. His gift of music combined with his respect for Yoga creates a lovely addition to any class.”
- Tracy Von Kaenel at Tai Chi Center of Chicago; Chicago, IL
“I love the idea of live drum beats in a yoga class, it adds a unique and healing vibration and sound that goes perfectly with a yoga practice. Jay drummed for my Vinyasa Flow classes for several months, and I was sad to see him move away! His energy and beats are completely contagious. We had a lot of fun working together and I would definitely recommend his music to be paired with yoga in future classes.”
— Melissa Eisler at Riffs Acoustic Music; San Diego, CA
“Jayʼs drumming is right in tune with wherever we decide to take the class. He fills the space with energy and inspiration. Jay is also kind, considerate and reliable. It has been an honor working with him, and we are grateful to have him booked already for future events.”
— Meghan Stockdale at Soul Tree Colorado; Louisville, CO
“Our students are still talking about the “coolest” class they have ever been to with Jay on the Drums live session! He intuitively was able to connect with the flow of the teacher during class and was very social with the whole group. We will be doing this again!”
— Deby Curcio at Summit Hot Yoga; Frisco, CO
