The methods that I choose to use with my students depends on what they want to learn. Some students want to just play classical music, some pop, some jazz, some marching band, etc. Therefore I do not use the same teaching methods for all students. With that being said, I do make certain that all of my srudents understand the basic elements of music, i.e., time and key signatures, note values, melody, rhythm, harmony, pitch, intonation (if a wind instrument), form, theme and variation, etc.

I have recorded several albums, toured around the globe and taught at drumming events across the country. I teach all styles of contemporary drum set and marching snare drum.In 2010, I was named "Educator of the Year" by the drumming web site "United Groove Workers". I am a member of the Vic Firth Education Team and The Professional Drum Teachers Guild.

I have been teaching for 8 years. I started off in a small studio in Cypress, CA called Music & Arts. Once I refined my skills there I took a job as the Music Director of Education at The Boys & Girls Club of Long Beach. Currently contracted with numerous lesson facilities across Southern California, I know what it takes to make a lesson fun! I have taught students of all ages, from 5 to 70.

I primarily use original material when I teach, but occasionally I’ll work from standard method books such as Stick Control, Master Studies, and Syncopation, or assign pages from more recent books like John Riley’s The Art of Bop Drumming. I’ll also pull out books specifically for sight reading such as Anthony Cirone’s Portraits in Rhythm. For beginning and intermediate students I focus on fundamental technique, basic sight reading skills, and drum set playing (independence/coordination of the limbs, relaxation and balance, time and groove, fills and solos, introduction of musical styles, etc.) For advanced students I get into more conceptual and creative aspects of playing the drums, but I also introduce the Spivack/Wilson technique which I learned during my studies with Murray Spivack and Richard Wilson in the 1980s [check out the 4-part series featured in Modern Drummer magazine in 2011-2012]. This technique focuses on mechanics and involves such concepts as the wrist turn, rebound, upstroke, downstroke, fulcrum, guide, balancing point, and floor of the stroke.

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.
