When I started making moody instrumental music and showing how I make music vis YouTube videos, I didn't say much at all. It wasn't until people started writing me that I started to open up and share details about who I am and my story.


At the core of my story is this phrase:

Trash to Treasure

When people started writing me with feedback about how much they enjoyed the music and watching me create, they also asked for mor information about me. So, I wrote back sharing my story. 

I started developing my moody instrumental music skills as a kid playing with other people's trash - bittles, buckets and cans I found on the side of the streets of Washington, DC. I played clarinet for a year in middle school and played my first drum kit to earn a spot as the drummer for the US Air Force Academy Cadet Gospel Choir. Even though I had never played on a drum kit before, I kept working hard at it to get better.

I started composing and songwriting as the drummer for the Ogden, Utah Gospel-Jazz band, The Upper Room. I played drums professionally for a few years as the band toured and recorded an album.

This website showcases my blended styles of Downtempo, Jazz, Hip-Hop, Electronica and other music genres into my Moody Instrumental Music, or mood music.

I am interested in meeting people who share this passion for music and self improvement that I have. A few years ago, I set out to use my skill and imagination to create an aesthetic environment as the home of my Moody instrumental Music so I could make it available for other people to experience. You're looking at the result - TaurusBeats.com.

In a way, you could say that I found my musical Treasure through other people's Trash!
