It is important that each student progresses at his or her own pace.  I encourage this by setting realistic goals for my students at each lesson.  Acknowledging accomplishments helps fuel a students desire to progress, and makes students eager tolearn more. By trying to find out what imspires the student, I can successfully tailor my instruction to their wants and needs.

I have taught many different classes and played various instruments in many different ensembles and settings. I am a fluent musician/song writer and I relay through my methodology, a system of learning with minimal frustration and maximized student success. I effectively teach students how to put their ideas and emotions into music. I am adept and respectful of diverse learning styles and will encourage the best of each student. I am soundly qualified and confident that I can effectively develop any student’s ambition into successful musical endeavors.

Instruments:

With beginner students of all ages, I start with the Elementary Drum Method Book by Roy Burns, Ultimate Realistic Rock Drum Method book by Carmine Appice, and the Drum Rudiment Dictionary by Jay Wanamaker. I am a fan of helping my students learn their favorite songs, and will take time to go over the songs, bar by bar. Once the first 3 books are mastered you will move up to intermediate drum techniques, and studies to assist in developing total limb independence. Once students master these basics through the classes and the occasional take home studies, we will then work on rudiments around the whole drum set to develop freeform soloing, before moving on to Jazz and Latin beats. I ask my students to work on rudiments at home comfortably between TV commercials, and to work on the notation, reading and groove lessons for a minimum of 20 minutes per day, for low stress progression. But the more you do, the better the results. Whichever approach works best for my students, will include a relaxed, fun atmosphere.

A custom lesson plan will be developed for each student. Reading, technique, play along with songs the student is interested in learning.

I began to teach drum lessons as a freshman in High School and I haven't looked back since! Teaching has always come naturally to me because my father taught cello lessons at home for my entire childhood . I have combined his teaching styles with my own philosophies, experience and habits throughout my young and extensive musical career. I also have been taking drum lessons since age six from four different drum instructors. Each of them have taught me many things that will be ingrained in my drumming for the rest of my life. I'm very thankful for my upbringing because being submerged in music my whole life has made me into a well rounded musician and music teacher.

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.
