About Taylor

Taylor Friesth is a proud endorser of Vic Firth, Low Boy Custom Beaters, and Welch Tuning Systems

Taylor has been dedicated to the drums since the age of 6 and has been teaching the drums since the he was 13. It is his love for the instrument that has led him to find new and efficient ways not only to play the drums but to teach them as well. 

Taylor has been playing and recording with top musicians from an early age, and has gone on to play stages such as Red Rocks Amphitheater and CU Boulders Folsom Field. 


In 2015, Taylor authored The Sly Hat, the only book of its kind that is solely focused on using the sound of the closing hi-hat as an addition to grooves and fills. The Sly Hat later got published by Wisdom Media with Hudson Music and received endorsements from Gordy Knudtson (Steve Miller Band) and Rod Morgenstein (Winger and Former Head of Percussion at Berklee College of Music).

Today, Taylor works with musicians from all over by providing custom drum tracks and drum lessons
