Keith is a graduate of the St. Louis Visual and Performing Arts High School. He studied percussion at Howard University under the tutelage of Alfonso M. Pollard, and at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette under Mike Mann, where he was named “Outstanding Collegiate Jazz Drummer” in the state and performed with IAJE All-Star Collegiate Jazz Band. Additionally, Keith has received invaluable instruction from Ralph Hardimon, former percussion arranger for the Santa Clara Vanguard Drum & Bugle Corps, Kenny Aronoff, Peter Erskine, and jazz legend Jim Chapin.


Keith has performed on stage with jazz icons Byron Stripling, Pete Fountain, and John Stoddard, acclaimed timpanist Rick Holmes of the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra, contemporary country artist Keith Urban, rock-n-roll legend Johnny Johnson, and religious artists Wintley Phipps, Roland Gresham, and Reger Smith. No stranger to exquisite concert venues, Keith has had the honor of performing at Powell Hall, the Sheldon Concert Hall, the Kauffman Center, and New York’s Lincoln Center.
