MY JOURNEY


MY JOURNEY


Burroughs brings his passion to all musical styles and melodies. By weaving them into a distinct percussive tapestry, he is in a constant state of evolving. Chris takes a metaphysical approach to percussion, always in the present moment, intuitively seeking a higher level. A non-conformist, he creates his own path.

Born and raised in Rockford, Illinois drummer/percussionist Chris Burroughs began playing at the early age of four. Music was not only encouraged in the Burroughs household, it was mandatory. โ€œMy Dad was a huge fan of all things artistic, especially music. Everyone was required to play a musical instrument and I chose the drums.โ€ 

Over the course of his professional career, Chris has performed throughout the United States, Europe, Japan, and Australia. He has been blessed to record, tour, and share the stage with artist like: Dee Dee Bridgewater, Carmen Bradford, Col. Bruce Hampton, Jennifer Holiday, Russell Gunn, Chris Duarte, Tony Monaco, Joe Grandson, Dionne Farris, and Jacques Schwartz-Bart.

Chris endorses Evans drum heads and Pro-Mark drum sticks.

Teaching


Teaching


In my lifetime, I've been blessed to study with some of the best drum and music educators In the world. Some of the teachers I've studied with include: Jack Brand, Jack Bell, Tony Sawyer, Count M' Butu, Augustine Diaz, Chuck Silverman, Terreon Gully, Kinah Boto, and Lee Venters. I believe In selflessly sharing my gift with other fledgling musicians. I teach conceptually based on the individual. Each student has a unique personality and I have to be flexible enough to address this in a lesson. My success with each student comes from getting to the heart of their uniqueness and helping them translate those attributes into an individual style.
