Sheila-Mary Earley

Playing drums was always a family affair. My two older sisters and one older brother played drums as well as my younger brother. From an early age I wanted to play drums my entire life. I've kept pursuing it and have worked with some of the top musicians in the world. Including jazz trumpeter Tom Harrell and saxist Houston Person, singer Carole Sloane and pop singer Clay Aiken. Jazz is my true love, but I also love Latin, Pop, Rock, you name it! I teach kids to play drums and I love all the percussion instruments. With four brothers, I was always watching football with them, so when the Green Bay Packers were in the NFC Championship this year, I had to combine my love for my team with my love for drumming so I am entering a song combining both. I am currently pursuing a new project in Jazz and working to achieve my coals with a new coach, Mr. Jeff Hamilton, one of the worlds greatest jazz drummers of all time. I've also studied with Alex Acuna and Peter Erskine. I'll see you out on the circuit everyone! Lots of love and peace through music. Sheila-Mary Earley
