My music education has a firm foundation in Classical/Jazz/Pop idioms. At MTSU I had the privelage of studying with Lalo Davilla, Andy Smith, Germon Barratto, Cedric Dent, and Michael Linton. With these instructors I have gained knowledge in Classical/Jazz/Latin Percussion Performance, Classical/Jazz Theory, Arranging, Composition, and Analysis. Since my graduation in 2007, I have had the joyful opportunity to continue educating students at a more advanced level. My teaching method is solely based around creating an encouraging learning environment, not only physically, but mentally as well. Each student enjoying the learning/practice and celebrating their personal success, is at the top of my todo list. Music is a performance art, just as teaching is...And I take pride in my "this is a blast!" methods :)

My teaching style is fairly relaxed. The pace depends on the students' goals and skill level. Most importantly, I want the student to have fun! I like to encourage students to become proficient in reading, but I only will use books that suit the students needs and desires. As such, there is no one book or program that I depend on. However, I do insist that students practice and come prepared to each lesson.

With beginners, I focus on the fundamentals like working out of George L. Stone's 'Stick Control' and introducing rudiments while focusing on overall technique. I also work out of a book called 'A Funky Primer', which is a drum set book that has hundreds of different beat combinations. Depending on how the student progresses and what their overall goals are, I eventually begin to introduce difference genres and styles and more complex and challenging approaches to the drum set. With intermediate and advanced drummers, I assess their strengths and weaknesses while keeping their priorities in mind and help them polish their skills in various areas.

My method involves a mixture of exercises and musical application. It is important for our development as musicians to understand what we are doing on both a technical and mechanical level. However, it is equally important to keep what we are doing relatable to the music that we want to play. Keeping lessons fun and engaging is a big part of seeing results. This idea applies to a beginning student learning single stroke rolls or an advanced student learning how to read a fusion chart.

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.
