Russell Sharp

Charlotte

Russell Sharp, originally from Connecticut, started playing drums in ‘69, after being inspired by Woodstock. He has been teaching drums for over 10 years.

Having over 35 years of experience, Russ has made tremendous strides in the Rock n’ Roll, Blues, Funk, R&B, Jazz/Rock and Progressive Rock areas. The use of dynamics and a free feel are key elements to his style.
