I love seeing and sharing my students passion for music.  I can be rather silly and love to laugh, but I also believe that excellence is a habit.  Therefore, I try to keep each lesson engaging and fun while also setting reasonable goals for my students.  I also want to help my students develop consistent practice habits so that they can see how practicing leads to improvement.  Lastly I want to help my students make music that inspires them.

Instruments:

I am a very hands-on teacher. We do lots of improvisation and call and response games and sometimes I turn on a record or even bring a guitar to jam with the student.  Playing drums is a very visceral, tactile excersize, and I often tell students, "That right there, that is how it's supposed to sound!  Memorize that feeling and try to recreate it everytime."  I am also a huge advocate of having students listen to as much music as possible.  Playing drums is still very much an aural language and listening to other drummers is enormously important. Drumming should always be fun and I always remind myself and my students of that.

What is the Best Age to Start Guitar Lessons?

...a very young student’s hands are not quite strong enough to play chords, they can still play simple song melodies on the first three strings of the guitar, all while learning to read music. Once they have progressed and built up some hand strength, the teacher may try introducing guitar chords at a later lesson. The guitar is a perfect instrument for young adolescents, whether they are interested in starting a garage band or in pursuing classical guitar. Most teens will probably want to play on an electric guitar with as big of an amplifier as they can get their hands on – but it still might be easier for them to start on an acoustic guitar. ...
