Hi I am Andy Maritz. In 2004 I embarked on a musical journey that I never thought would change my life forever. I joined the Groove Regulators and studied under coach Andries Visser doing a custom full time program that he had designed and compiled. This was a year of studying the drum kit and not only developing my playing skills but also gathering a lot of technical insights regarding the instrument. The course was very intense and I am grateful for it now because of all the hours I had to put in behind the drum set. Being full time in the industry now as a musician and a producer, I understand the value of time management and hard work. Thank you coach Andries for all your love, time and patience and thank you for developing young musicians such as myself.
