I am very methodical and my assessments are of great importance. I motivate and teach each student at their level and get great results.The student plays back the material explained to insure the ability to practice at home the lesson given.It takes time to attain these goals but encouragement and drive is instilled in the students overall experience as to better make headway to attaining his or her goal. As a professional, I transgress the things that took me there. To share my experiences which in turn motivated the learning to a successful level.

I'm currently a new transplant to the Gulf Coast, Originally from NY I've taught in NYC, Boston and Atlanta. I've been a drum teacher for 28 years and my personal students read like a whos who of drumming. For many years I have taught and still teach many of the top professionals and biggest names in drumming. Many professionals fly in to see me, or have me fly out to coach them on their tours or in studio.  See my Zildjian Artist Link. I was privileged to have studied with Jim Chapin (who I filled in for and played in NYC with his own personal band when he went on tour for several years). I was the only drummer he picked to do so. I also studied with Dom Famularo, Gary Chaffee, Gary Chester, Franke Malabe. I've been playing professionally since I was in HS. Some of the artists I've toured and/or recorded with: Idina Menzel (Frozen, Rent, Wicked), Sheryl Crow, Jacob Dylan, Lisa Loeb. As a performer I have traveled around the world on tours. I have also played and recorded in studios around the globe as well.

If the student is a beginner, I always try to instill fundamentals which are needed to develope musical vocabulary.  If they have experince, I want to know what type of music they are interested in learning and then guide them in the right direction.  The direction I steer them in will contain mechanics to develop skills to become more proficient on their instrument in the style they are interested in learning.  Since listening is a huge part of learning, I will also provide historical content relative to their instrument.

For those students who love to forge ahead, I use HARMONY AND THEORY. I don't tend to start out teaching how to read music, but if suggested/desired, I'm aok w/ the notion. I focus on chord tones, diatonic, symmetrical and other scales, syncopation/rhythms, the clave in Latin Music, the metronome, jazz chords vs other chords and more. Drumming wise I use the book STICK CONTROL, and for more advanced students I use an Ed Uribe book about Afro-Cuban styles ... I feel that book takes one to a much higher level!

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.
