“My major influences today are Quincy Jones, Dr.Dre, Jai Paul and Toro Y Moi”
“My signature workshop is using music technology to enable composition and aid musical understanding. I like to have fun in a classroom exploring whacky sounds to create something unique yet credible”
What inspired me musically : “As soon as I learned 2 chords on guitar at the age of 13 I was writing my own songs and performing them live. Composition and exploration have always been the driving force behind my musical passion.”
Leroy can offer workshops in music tech, songwriting, vocal (acapella / choral / individual / beatboxing / rapping), drumming, guitar and sound design / video game music.
