Caleb F. grew up in the town of Fenton, Michigan after being born in Libertyville, Illinois. He went to school at Lake Fenton all the way from Kindergarten to 12th grade. He had always been interested in music, and his mom would always laugh when he would bounce up and down to Shania Twain at age 2. Around the age of 8, his mom decided to have him take piano lessons. He ended up quitting because he didn’t like it that much, but in 5th grade, he decided to play the alto saxophone for the Lake Fenton band program. He really enjoyed playing the saxophone and would eventually make his way to first chair in the high school band, but there was an even greater love he would discover soon. Around 7th grade, he would start taking private drum lessons. This is when Caleb found the instrument that he truly loved. He had always had a great ear for rhythm, and this is where he would be able to best express that talent. From 7th to 12th grade, Caleb took private lessons with his drum teacher, a man by the name of Andy Garcia. Andy was the man that truly unlocked Caleb’s potential. He encouraged and challenged Caleb as much as he could, giving him the tools to succeed in his post high school life.
Caleb studied Music Business and Entrepreneurship at Judson University, with a focus in percussion. Michael Folker, his private instructor there, would be another major figure in his life. He taught Caleb how to play the marimba and timpani, and he helped Caleb master difficult solos on those instruments as well as the snare drum. He graduated in May of 2018, cum laude. In addition to being a musician, Caleb is also an avid runner. He ran competitively in both high school and college, and hopes to continue as long as he’s physically able to do so.
