Tell us a little about your background...
Larry’s passion for music began when he was growing up in Detroit, Michigan. He began playing drums at a very young age, and knew even then that music and performing would become his career. Larry has recorded, performed and toured with some of the world’s top recording artists and musicians both in the United States and internationally.

Building on his success as a drummer, Larry moved into the producer’s chair, and his work has been featured in Commercials, Television and Film. His skills are in demand for Soundtrack and Foley projects. He continues to compose, record and produce projects, most recently creating music for The National Fibromyalgia Association. He has received numerous awards for his composition work on the Power (PSA) with narrator Jeffrey Osborne. Giving back to the community is very important to Larry, and he is actively involved with several Los Angeles based charities.

In 2008, Larry founded Rhythmworkz, an organization dedicated to keeping music programs alive in schools. His involvement in the Reno, Nevada schools, gave Rhythmworkz lots of media exposure, and the band kids he reached were excited beneficiaries of new percussion equipment. Larry plans to continue this important project, and impact many more schools throughout the US as Rhythmworkz grows.

Larry is actively developing and participating in Clinics and Workshops for educational institutions throughout the country. In June 2009, He was part of the Contemporary Drums & Percussion Camp in Orlando, Florida. Larry is focused on reaching out to younger musicians, and sharing his knowledge and experiences, in a positive and motivational workshop environment.

Thanks for the Request .

















Jaijai, what a wonderful mission you've undertaken to create such a place for artistic minds to meet and share their hearts. A place to renew faded determinations, and revive lessened momentums. A place to display our wares and reconfirm to one another that we actually are on the right track.

I commend you, Jaijai, for caring so much that you created this castle of the heart for all of us. I want to share my praise for all of the new friends as well as old friends that I've met and will meet here in our castle. Here we can garnish the where-with-all, the strength, the conviction, and the selflessness through our symbiosis, to share our gift to the world with an unbiased agenda.

My mentor, Daisaku Ikeda says of art: "A beautiful flower delights and refreshes the hearts of all people equally, no matter what soil it grows in. That is the power of beauty. The same is true of great art. It is this spirit that the German poet Heinrich Heine sang of when he wrote that once the peapod bursts open, the sugar peas inside are for everyone to enjoy."

Let's be audacious, my friends!
