I am committed to a lifetime of growth in both the performance and education of music, and have been for qute some time. It all started, I suppose, in high school when I was fortunate enough to be a participant in a very high quality program. I am primarily a jazz saxophonist, but my interests do not end there. Alongside my unremitting passion for the jazz saxophone, I began teaching myself guitar and piano (in high school) and drums and voice not long after. I am well versed in the pop/rock genres and have taught myself through learning popular songs but even more singificantly through composition; I have written over one hundred songs as a singer-songwriter and have much to impart in this field. The skills developed in these areas (improvisation, composition, music theory) are the ones most likely to ensure an autonomically deep and everlasting connection to confident music performance and development.

In nearly a decade of private drum instruction, I have begun to develop a methodology that I use in getting a student on the path toward success and efficient learning as a drummer and a musician. There are four basic steps in my methodology, and they are listed as follows: 1. Find your own personal voice as an artist/musician. What style of music attracts you the most? What artists/albums can you listen to on repeat? What genre of music and style of drumming are you most naturally drawn to. We will find an answer to these questions over a short period of just 2-4 weeks, so long as my instructions are followed. Listening to music is just as important as playing when it comes to being a musician. 2. Study basic technique/rudiments/coordination and independence exercises to build endurance, fluency and facility on the instrument. This will allow the student’s voice to develop and grow. 3. Practice 3-4 way coordination, by working through a series of books and exercises of my choice, focusing primarily on the “core” of the drum set: Bass drum, snare drum, and hi hat. This is my study of the “groove” element of the instrument; the portion of the art that is dedicated to the music, and not to the instrument itself. In this section, we will apply a series of “beats” and “grooves” to music of the students choice – learning how to flow with other musicians, listen, and have an overall awareness of song form and shape. 4. This is the step where we apply our study of technicalities. This is where we study soloing, improvisation, and alertness as an improvising musician. This is the last step because it is applied in conjunction with all of the other steps, and cannot be achieved without at least a fundamental understanding and application of the previous steps. This is where the student learns how to express him/herself as an individual musician, but in an appropriate and tasteful fashion. These steps are not really to be “completed” per say, but my guarantee is that if a student follows these steps, takes at least weekly lessons with me and follows my instructions as closely as possible, I will have them playing confidently with other musicians within a month.

My method for teaching is helpful for students to become the best musicians they can be. We work on proper technique, different music styles, and being able to create music with the lessons i give them. The most important thing for any musician is to find their own sound.

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.
