Ed Francis is a drum coach at Round Rock Drums and also founded Rhythm Workshops. Rhythm Workshops a non-profit dedicated to bringing musical experiences into the community, at no cost to the children – focusing on groups of people who have little access to making music.

After years of marching in high school bands, competing in the Jr. Drum Corps, touring with the USAF World Wide Talent Contests and performing in local bands, Ed decided to bring his passion for percussion into the heart of his community where he began teaching as a drum coach.

Ed has never forgotten how music and drumming helped him to work through the pain of growing up in an abusive and dysfunctional home environment. The scars may have run deep, but the power of having a positive outlet helped to build his self-confidence and slowly release the otherwise debilitating anxieties building up in the young man. While working with Rhythm Workshops he relates his experiences to young people everywhere.

And Ed’s deeply personal story can be found on the pages of ‘From Bullied To Brilliant’.
