DRUMS DRUMS DRUMS...
Hey! My name is Liz Aponte, but I often go by DJThunderstix. After trying pretty much every other instrument, I settled on drums at the ripe age of 13. Since then, I’ve played in garages, churches, Warped Tour, and all across the country.
I play and am available for studio sessions for most any musical style - specializing in rock, gospel, punk, metal and acoustic. Watch the commercial I was in for iFrogz/ZAGG.
I teach beginner and intermediate level drummers out of my home studio in Salt Lake City or via Skype. Get more details.
I make custom drums through my company Respira Collective. View the drums I've made.
Whether it's playing in a band, learning a specific song or working on technique, I'll create a custom roadmap to help each student learn and grow with each lesson. Lessons will be informative, helpful and most importantly - FUN!
With over 10 years of teaching experience, I've developed an interactive and educational curriculum aimed at aiding students in recognizing and achieving their musical goals.
A desire to learn drums is the only requirement to get started. Set up your first free drum lesson by contacting me.

DRUMS I'VE MADE
I started my first business at the age of 15 making custom drums in my parents garage. Since then, I've made hundreds of snare drums and drum kits for musicians in the US, Canada, Mexico and Australia.
I mostly focus on custom snare drums - please contact me if you're interested in a drum!
