Graduated from the University of the Arts for Music Business, entrepreneurship, and technology.
I have always been into drum education. Ever since I was little I would watch drum educational DVD's and also took drum lessons which helped me become an inspired musician. I know love to give back and teach all levels and styles of drumming. I graduated from The University Of the Arts with a bachelors degree in Music Business, and Technology. While attending the University Of the Arts I also took drum lessons with Rob Brosh, Marcus Meyers, and Jason Gianni. I play in many live bands and also enjoy recording drums in the studio. I am looking forward to meeting other drummers of all ages and skill sets to teach with the guaranteed methods I have studied myself.
My teaching experience dates back to my high school days, as I began teaching private lessons part time 8 years ago, and have been consistently teaching students in my home studio for the last 3 years. Encouraging regular practice on a consistent schedule is one of the key points I like to emphasize for younger students, as it tends to help the student progress and gain a passion for the instrument. I've also found that a combination of technique and musicality can go a long way in helping students enjoy the drums and motivate them to practice and continue to learn. If a student isn't having fun in their lessons, then I'm not doing my job! I'm always looking to bring on new students of all ages!
I used a combination of my own methods and standardized books for drum set education. I break up the lessons in two or three sections depending on skill level. The fundamentals are key aspects to progress as a drummer. Using a combination of technique lessons and also practical musical application are key lessons to go over with any student. I like to make the lessons fun and the most important part is to play with music. Using technology and video recording are also very practical tools to help the students develop by watching back and examining there playing
Nothing is more rewarding than seeing one of my students develop a passion for music! Therefore, it's 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 to learn more. By trying to find out what inspires the student, I can successfully tailor my instruction to their wants and needs.. I am open to students suggestions on how what they would like to learn
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.Ok
