Most of my students have never played drums before studying with me.  With beginners I believe it's most important to learn a good technique for striking the drums as well as introducing the student to fundamental rhythms and musical practices.  Many students want to learn to jam immediately and that's great.  I suggest learning some basic reading as well as playing by memory and improvising.  It is also fun and beneficial for beginners or advanced players to play drums to recorded music. I do often bring in new custom written material for the student as a supplement to their etude book.

I often ask my students to bring in a song that they have been listening to and want to learn the drum beat for. We then deconstruct what the drummer is doing and figure out the best way to replicate the drum beat. I then address any technique or coordination issues that the student may run into and we work on exercises to comfortably perform the drum beat. This style of reverse-engineering is very helpful in teaching students how to figure out drum beats on their own by using their ears. I also have two drum kits in my studio which allows me to quickly demonstrate exercises and also drum along with my students.

I am interested in music of many cultures and I specialize in drum set, African drumming, keyboard percussion, and orchestral percussion. I also play steel drums and guitar. I have performed with numerous professional orchestras including the Federal Way, Tucson, Phoenix, and Juneau symphonies and was the principal percussionist and timpanist for the Sierra Vista Symphony Orchestra in Arizona. I have a Doctorate of Musical Arts in Percussion Performance with a minor in Ethnomusicology.

My teaching experience varies for each of the instruments I instruct. I began teaching private lessons for guitar in 2004. My voice instruction began in 2009, and the rest of the listed instruments I began to teach in 2012. I believe consistent daily practice is essential for improvement in my students, and encourage my students to log their practice time. In the words of my professor Todd Woodbury, "You do not become a master from what you do within these lessons. You become great by how much effort you put into the application of my guidance through your own practice." I cannot make you the performer you want to be. I can only guide you through the process. This is why I am always excited to bring on a new student. Each student I have worked with holds a special place with me. I strive for those key moments when my student comes to a new musical understanding.

I have come to learn that all students learn in their own unique way and at their own pace. As a teacher, it is my responsibility to identify these unique traits, encourage their strengths and improve their weaknesses. I also make sure they are learning what they want to learn, but more importantly, teach them what they need to learn to continuously excel musically.

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.
