Darrell Reddix Jr. has been playing music since he was only two years old! He began playing drums in church at the young age of five, and picked up the piano at the age of 12, continuing in private lessons on both instruments throughout his school years. The improvements he made thanks to these lessons would be vital to the rest of his career, beginning with his All County Band selection in 7th grade. Throughout high school, Darrell furthered his musical skills through participation in various ensembles including concert band, marching band, and jazz band. His band participation led to his selection for the three County bands in Anne Arundel County: Jazz; Orchestra- Principal chair; and Concert Band.

Upon completing high school, Darrell attended Towson University, where he received the Peggy Friedmann-Gordon Scholarship for musical performance. He later received the Music History 2 Term Paper Award for his outstanding paper on Beethoven’s Emperor Concerto. After completing his Bachelor of Music degree at Towson, Darrell went on to further his education at the University of Maryland, where he completed his Master of Music in Jazz Performance in 2017. 

Throughout his years in undergraduate and graduate studies, Darrell has continued to perform in a variety of genres and venues - most notably, playing at the famous Blues Alley with Marcus & Marcus. He has performed at several major venues across the East Coast including the Merriweather Post Pavilion and the PNC Pavilion.

Darrell considers Professor David Ballou of Towson University to be his biggest influence musically. Professor Ballou helped Darrell to realize that there was much more to being a musician than the traditional roles of each instrument, and taught him to think outside the box about music.

Darrell decided to make a career of teaching music in order to continue the tradition instilled in him during his years at Towson. As a teacher, he shows each one of his students that they can be even more than they had imagined. He looks forward to helping students further their understanding of the music they know, live and listen to daily, as well as helping them to understand themselves as musicians and as people. Darrell takes great joy and pride in learning and growing with his students.
