I think it's important for students to learn from all styles of music; but if they enjoy one style in particular, I believe it's important to study this style with them and help them to improve upon it. I love understanding what makes each individual unique; so I really listen to them and design a curriculum based on their likes; challenging them to appreciate all styles of music; and encouraging them to become fluent in various genres, time periods and methods. Sometimes, we start at the very beginning; sometimes; we continue the necessary building blocks of technique and artistry that contribute to making a well rounded artist.

I have a wealth of materials on hand to find what apporach works best for each student.  For drumset and guitar I tend to work without notation and focus on the sound.  If my students haven't learned a new song, or significantly improved an old one by the end of each lesson, then I am not doing my job.

I pride myself on instilling a passion for music and music making in my students. To do this, I make my lessons responsive to the particular needs of each student and I consciously draw attention to what a student does well as well as what a student can improve. In this way, my students develop a strong desire to refine and polish their playing and listening while acknowledging and enjoying what they do well. Music cannot be fun if the only feedback a student gets or a teacher gives is critical. I stress the importance of comfort at the piano: no pain, no gain is never applicable to becoming a better pianist! Therefore, I encourage my students become very aware about how their physical gestures influence the sound that they produce. This ensures that students are confident and in control when approaching new, more difficult pieces of music. I always work to establish a trusting and personal relationship with my students so that lessons are effective, fun, and educational!

I approach teaching music with patience and enthusiasm. I realize that there is an ebb and flow in every person's life and progress cannot be measured in an even intervals. Although I am pleased at a student progress, humanity is vast and always surprising me. Each of us are indeed unique and revered. Even as we learn we can enjoy all the leaps and bumps along the way. As with any teaching method, consistency is attendance breeds the best learning environment. And one thing I tell young learners is that they should never practice. Practice implies work. I want them to play their instruments as a reward for finishing homework for example.

I have developed a program for beginner to intermediate drum students. My first half hour with a student is an evaluation of where a student should start. Frequently students already know things about music and or drums and don't realize it. It might be from band class in third grade or because they have sat around tapping to songs on the radio. I find out what they do or don't know and what their general concept of drumming is and what they envision themselves doing with their drum skills. From there, I can tell where a student needs to start and what direction to guide them. I believe that learning to read drum music is essential, but should not be the main focus. Learning to read will happen naturally as a student learns to play. The most important thing I can share with a student is how to find the love of playing. Once you find that love, practice is not tedious, it is part of the awesome journey. Books that I use - Alfred's Drum Method Book 1 by Sandy Feldstein and Dave Black. Stick Control for the Snare Drummer by George Lawrence Stone Alfred's kid's drum set course by Dave Black and Steve Houghton Progressive Drum Method by Craig Lauritsen 100 Essential Drumset Lessons by Terry O'Mahoney

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.
