For beginning students, I create my own lessons, starting with proper technique, basic rhythms and introduction to music theory, but only related to rhythms at first.  After a couple lessons, we start to focus on the fundamental rudiments and short solo pieces incorporating those rudiments.  For the more advanced student, I try to find out their goals and expectations and try to align and incorporate those with studies in technique and theory.  The goal is to keep students interested, lessons fun while growing their experience and proficiency at their instrument.

I have a little card taped to a bookcase in my living room that says: "Give 'em something they can DO."  This means the students needs to be able to put things into action, into motion. Everything will make more sense for you when you physically DO it. Then my card says, "Give 'em something they CAN do." This is an important distinction!  When the activities are do-able, from the very beginning, students experience success and their confidence begins to grow. This comes from low-pressure experiences, each at the right place in the sequence of skill learning. In any field, seeing that you CAN do it makes all the difference!

My method involves playing to each persons skill level. For absolute beginners I think it is crucial to address the students interests and influences, and start crafting an approach to learning the basic rudiments and skills that apply to those drummers / bands. As a student becomes more and more skilled I will start switching over to having two drum sets at the space so that a student can see how a beat is played in real time, and also work on setting into the pocket more easily by playing what I am playing. Really, it just depends on what works. I will model each teaching style around each student. I am not a fascist when it comes to learning every single note of a drum fill or playing something exactly the same as someone else. Every professional drummer I have ever seen has learned to internalize and approximate the feeling of a decade of drumming, a style of drumming, or the attitude of a style of music. This is what we will focus on.

My teaching experience began in 2008, when I began teaching private lessons on various instruments, on voice, and on conducting. I later went on to teach band and choir at Cedar Bluff High School in 2011. After this, I volunteered as the band director at Valley Head High School in 2014. I have enjoyed every moment of teaching music and have taken so much from the experiences that I've had. If I was to emphasize anything about learning the art, it would be the understanding of interpretation and how to make any music into something that is uniquely yours. I am looking for students of all ages, and am excited to bring the world of music a little bit closer to any student whose presence for which I may be graced. I work diligently to maintain that my students always feel confident in everything they do musically and understand the thrill of taking part in something so wonderful and fulfilling.

I take a very individual approach to my teaching plans- each student has their own attention spans, goals, interests and abilities! When I was first learning piano, I was frustrated by the music choices my teacher was picking for me and this usually made me not in the mood to practice. Over the years I've collected, written and purchased various pieces and exercises for both piano and percussion that allow me to create custom lessons for my students.

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.
