Riley Kragness

Born and raised in Minnetonka, Riley has been involved in music for most of his life, focusing on the drum set for the past 8 years. He spent several years developing his skills through private lessons. Graduating with honors, an award, and two associates degrees from IPR College of Creative Arts in 2017, he is regularly involved in live sound and studio recording throughout the twin cities, as well as playing drums for various bands and musical projects.

Riley has a passion for helping others to develop their skills as musicians, regardless of how long they have been playing the drums.
