Overview:
I'm a Brooklyn based drummer and instructor who loves to teach. In 2015, I graduated from the University of Northern Colorado with a Bachelor's degree in Jazz Studies with an emphasis in drumset performance. I was afforded the chance to work with and learn from many great musicians and notable jazz drummers such as Jeff Hamilton, Matt Wilson, John Riley, Jeff Coffin, etc. I have led many gigging bands, and have a lot of experience playing out and working with other musicians. I have a home studio in Park Slope where I teach Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday. I have a rehearsal studio in Greenpoint where I can teach Tuesday and Thursday mornings. 
EXPERIENCE
I developed a passion for teaching when I picked up a few students in college. The experience was fulfilling, and I realized that I enjoyed imparting my love for the instrument on others. After graduating, I continued to pick up students and teach private lessons in my home studio. The most important element to learning any instrument is to cultivate a genuine curiousity. I encourage students to listen to a broad spectrum of music, and to find things they like about certain artists and musicians. Digging deep into the history of music helps to generate passion, which leads to better playing.
METHODS USED
The first few lessons will be to gauge where the student is at technically, as well as musically. I like to cater to the needs of the student. Lessons can be as fast paced, or slow moving as the student would like. The important thing is to be comfortable with a technique before introducing new ones. Like I stated earlier, lessons will also include a historical study element. Drumming is best taught through studying the great drummers and musicians who have already mastered the instrument. Lessons will focus on listening, musicality, and self analysis of the student's own playing.
LESSON STYLE
The pace of lessons is up to the student. I will guide each student towards their goal. There is nothing I love more than the moment a student has a musical epiphany. That "I get it!" moment. Music is hard. Learning an instrument takes time and practice. It's important to remember why we do it. That's why it's important to be passionate and to remember that music is a lifelong process where we are always learning. My approach to teaching methods vary from student to student. Some students prefer to read music, while some prefer to learn by ear.

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.
