I like to use familiar songs as vehicles to teach. In my UCSC class, I start with Beatles songs because everyone knows them and they're well-liked. I always like students to suggest songs they want to learn as well, since they will be more likely to practice and be more engaged in practice if the song is something they enjoy. I use these as vehicles to teach chord voicings, theory, intervals and technique. I do not use notation but prefer guitar-centric language such as chord charts and tablature.

I began teaching when I substituted for one of my previous drum instructors while he was gone on a short vacation, and I instantly loved the whole process. Shortly after, I began teaching a couple of weekly beginning African drumming classes, as well as teaching through the Boys & Girls Club. My experience with both of these positions was invaluable, and helped me realize that I love helping students find that moment where everything clicks! Playing with many talented musicians in both Southern and Northern California, I have developed a unique style and approach to how I play with others, and I apply this to my lessons as well.

I like my students to work on their performance personas, as well as technique and repertoire. I want my students to be engaged and excited about the music they are working on and to practice performing it like the star that they are!

I am a young musician who plays multiple instruments including drums, piano, bass guitar, guitar, and vocals. I have been studying drums for the last 10 years. My parents run a music school out of Santa Rosa Beach Florida. I have always been surrounded by music and students. I was part of the South Walton High School band for 6 years, (I joined in 7th grade) I was Drum Line Captain for 3 of those years and after I graduated I was offered a position as Drum Line Instructor. I was the South Walton High School Band Drum Instructor for 2 years. I have competed in FMBC, MPA solo and ensemble competitions, Little Big Horn Marching Competition, and more. I desire the opportunity to teach music more than anything else in life. I want to share everything I've learned over the years with the hope that it will give others the same happiness and confidence it has given me.

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.
