His journey through music started when he joined his elementary school glee clubs at the age of 7. Later he joined the marching band and ultimately became drum major at age 12. In high school SUMA majored in music where he was trained in the theory, harmony and history of music with his specialty being in lower brass. After earning a degree in chemistry from Alabama State University (Summa Cum Laude *pun intended*), he was offered positions at some of the highest ranked Doctorate of Pharmacy programs in the country.
