ABOUT
Degrees / Training / Special Info:
Currently Pursuing BS in English/Creative Writing
Overview:
I have always loved music. I write and create music everyday. When I graduated high school I earned a band scholarship which allowed me to play in many different genres of music. I played in Big Jazz bands, Small Jazz combos, and pit orchestras. I toured with the Pittsburg State University Jazz Band and played timpani and snare for The Pittsburg State University Syphonic band. All four years. Fast Forward, in 2001 I placed an original piece of music in a film called "Punks". Today, I produce music for 8 different Hip Hop and R&B artist.
EXPERIENCE
During college, a woman and her son saw a Jazz combo show I played drum set in and after the set, She asked me if I would teach her son. I agreed. I taught her son for a year. Sadly, they moved away but the word spread and the next year I had two more students. It contuied that way as I progressed in college my teaching improved. When I moved to California in 1997, I had seven students to teach on the weekends. I did this for 3 years. I always had a natural ability to teach anythign that I know. From reading, writing, producing, developement and managing a students as well as a few Artist.
METHODS USED
For young students who have never played before they are introduced to a fun and easy book called Hal Leonard's Drum Set Method. After a quick assessment I apply some adjustments to there playing and quickly assign some fun homework. Simply and effective for their style of playing. For adults, I asked them to play for me a few bars and drum patterns. I check their ability to read, improvise and how strong their "pocket "is. (i.e. Their ability to keep time) Once that is complete, i ask them to share their goals and what exactly they want me to teach them.
LESSON STYLE
I set fun goals and I challenge each student every step of the way to help them reach them. I point out their strengths yet I keep a close eye on their weaknesses and work with them to eliminate any all bad habits in playing instruments. After a few weeks I quiz them and reward them for overcoming any obstacles. I really like to have my students play in front of friends and family after around 3 months of studying. I've found that it helps the students with stage fright if they are constanty playing in front of a small (or large) crowd.
