I grew up in Stephens City, VA, where I started playing drum set professionally at age 16. Piano, guitar, and songwriting came soon after, and in 2005 I was awarded the Jazz Studies Scholarship from the University of North Texas to study drum set with the world-renowned educator, Ed Soph. At North Texas, I participated in the 6 O'Clock Lab Band, Advanced AfroCuban Ensemble, Chamber Brass Band and Brazilian Ensemble, and soon after, was commissioned to compose original music for the computer game Wriggle Words.. In early 2008, I began touring nationally with a Denton-based band, and now tour nationally with several Austin-based groups. While not on the road, I play with numerous groups in Austin, write and record original music in my home studio, and teach.. I bring my extensive music industry experience into each lesson. While teaching my students their primary instruments, I also strive to make the lessons well-rounded, incorporating theory, ear training, music culture and history.

My teaching experience dates back to my first year out of high school. I was a marching member of the world renowned Santa Clara Vanguard drum line and was brought on the staff of my highschool to teach the students rudiments and technique. At that time I grew a love for teaching. I started taking private students on drumset and snare drum and within two years was teaching 40 plus students a week. I also co-created and directed the Allegiance Elite Jr. Percussion ensemble, which contained 10-13 children the ages 6-12. From there I became a teaching assistant at St. Francis Xavier University where I taught small group jazz combos. I am looking forward to bring on new students of any age and any style.

I began teaching private lessons and ensemble rehearsals in 1999, having since taught everything from elementary music and concert band to marching band and college-level drum corps. I love it all, as it's all about sharing the positive experience of performance and excellence with the next generation of musicians. In addition to teaching instrumental skills and technique, I also enjoy coaching music theory and composition, and often encourage students to bring in their own compositions to review or perform. As a performer, I have played bass guitar, drum set, hand drums, marching percussion and orchestral percussion with a multitude of bands/ensembles over the years, from cover bands and church groups to jazz trios and orchestras, and all points in between.

I believe listening is the key to learning.  I listen to my students to discover what techniques are working best for them and which are their weakest then adapt my lessons to their needs. I also try to teach students how to listen to music, hear the empty spaces in songs that really give them their polish, and how to listen for other individual instruments to understand whem to accompany instruments and when to give them their own space.   I stay relaxed yet professional while teaching and listen to my students needs in order to give them the tools they need in order to fully express themselves on their instrument.

My name is Rom and I’m the drummer for the band Seek Irony. My band and I are originally from Tel Aviv, Israel and we recently relocated to our new home base of Austin, TX.   I’ve been playing drums since I was eight years old. I recorded my first demo when I was ten, and played my first show at a club in Tel Aviv at the age of eleven. I graduated from the jazz music department of Israel’s most prestigious high school of the arts, Thelma Yelin. I believe that a lesson should be fun, easy, and challenging at the same time. As a teacher, the thing that is the most important to me, is to inspire my students. There is nothing better than making a student feel like he wants to go home and practice.

Select all the days/times the student would be available to start lessons. Selecting "3pm - 7pm" means the student can start as early as 3pm or start as late as 7pm. It is important that you select as many days and the widest window of start times for each day as possible. That will help us make a match with one of our teachers.
