Lessons are fun!  My philosophy is that students should have music in their lives and benefit from the lessons they take now for years to come.  Learning to play a musical instrument will help students with math skills, study habits, and develop a skill that will last for a lifetime. After 3 months students will understand the fundamentals of their string instrument or voice, know how to care for their instrument, warm up properly, be able to read and play/sing introductory passages.  After 6 months the student will have learned basic music theory, how to read music, and have advanced through playing/singing multiple songs. I have a violin and viola that I bring to assist in teaching lessons.    I expect that the students provide an instrument and their books.  A keyboard or piano is essential for voice students for vocalization, and an ipad or tablet keyboard works great.  A student need not know how to play piano in order to take voice lessons.

I generally focus around three methods for teaching younger students: the Alfred Series, the Bastien Series, and the Faber Series.  I prefer to use the Alfred Series, but I realize that not every student can handle the faster pace and demanding learning style that Alfred presents.  Bastien also offers really good methods for students that move a bit slower than Alfred.  Faber offers a wider range of music for students to learn from and moves at a slower pace compared to both Alfred and Bastien.

Although I began my musical career in the Suzuki method, I intentionally balance the ear-training approach of that method with music theory to create well-rounded musicians. My students will learn how to sight read music, improvize their own melodies, perform in an ensemble (chamber and/or orchestral) and master the art of performance with a solid foundation in music theory. I generally start off with Suzuki repertoire for beginning students, but supplement that with scales, positions exercises, dexterity exercises, and sight-reading material. For adult students I follow a similar technique, but I will generally ask them what they want to learn about the instrument and go from there, allowing them to choose their repertoire if they wish.

For beginning students my method of teaching combines a balance of learning the fundamentals such as rudiments with notation, stick control, dynamics, meter, etc. while also teaching the student to play by ear, which is imperative for a drummer perhaps more so than any other instrument.  Lessons are always designed to be fun, interactive and engaging - never tedious or mundane.  For practicality, drum practice pads are used to learn rudiments, but since the whole idea of learning drums is to play a drum set/kit I get the student on the set on day one, and every lesson.  I discuss what music styles the student is interested in and work on learning rhythms and songs by performing with the actual recordings.  Also, with a practice pad set and a drum set in my studio I am able to play side by side, or I can also step into the role of guitarist or keyboardist and the student can perform songs with a live musician - a very valuable teaching technique I have found.  Finally, I often employee computer based programs such as Acid Loops, Sound Forge & Garage Band to assist with fully hearing and dissecting drum beats and rhythms as well as to record the student so they can hear themselves as others do and to chart progress.

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.
