Philosophy on drum lessons:

Lessons are tailored to the needs and desires of each student’s development. I create and implement custom lessons for each individual using various instructional books along with teaching the basic drum rudiments in order to lay down a solid foundation. I also work with the student to explore all styles of music from rock to jazz, to latin, to funk and everything in between.

The main goal is for every student to learn the following skills:

  • Reading
  • Rudiments
  • Time keeping
  • 4 Way Coordination
  • Feel
  • Creativity
  • Fundamentals to all styles of playing

Utilizing my fifteen plus years of studio and live performance experience and my own training, I teach students of all skill levels. My aim is to help each student find his or her own voice on the drum set and continue growing as a musician in the process.
