  Each and every student who takes lessons from me is an individual. My focus in the beginning is on technique for sticks/hands/mallets. I also focus on body mechanics to help students be comfortable when playing the percussion instrument. When it comes to learning grooves and soloing concepts, I introduce students to a variety of styles. If a student shows interest in one, that particular style will be developed. It is my belief that students should be proficient in as many styles as possible. Reading music is important, and it part of my program. In each lesson I introduce a musical term and or concept while encouraging students to practice and improve knowledge on what already has been learned.

I was taught drums from a wonderful teacher named Jesse Charnow in San Diego at the age of 13. After a few years of him showing me the ropes, I started to progress on my own once my tastes became defined. Although I specialized in certain genres at first, he instilled in me the idea that a music career is a solid one if the musician has the widest spectrum of skillset possible. I've been utilizing that same method since I began teaching students about ten years ago.

My favorate way to start a teacher student relationship is to have the student just sit on the drums and let loose for me. This gives me a good idea of where to start with the student and to see what he/shes preferences are. I like to focus strongly on technique, fundimentals, and music theory. My overall goal is to build the students skills and confidence to be able to sit in and jam in any kind of situation

The approach I use to advance student learning is fun and laid back - yet direct and studious.  I believe in the power of mentoring students and adults.  Every student is different and has their own way of learning and growing, even as we get older.  There is always room for improvement.  At your first lesson we can talk about what makes sense in terms of practice week to week and will continue to see what it takes as time goes on.

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.
