Overview:

I am excited to be a full-time drum instructor. I teach snare drum and/or whole drum kit. I began playing drums in high school and have continued playing music for over 25 years. I have live performance and studio recording experience. I was taught by 2 private teachers as well as a high school band instructor and university jazz professor. My home studio is equipped with 2 drum sets (one for rock and one for jazz). I also have an area for practice pad/snare drum work. I teach students of all levels but usually start with ages 10 and up. I can teach lessons online with Skype, please inquire if that is an interest.

EXPERIENCE

I began teaching private lessons full time recently and have my own home studio for in-person and online Skype lessons. I always felt my passion was to become a teacher and I also have self-published my own drum rudiment book called "Learning Rudiments". I am a serious student of the drums as I regularly take online lessons, watch practice videos, and listen to drum teaching podcasts to pick up the latest advice. I want to inspire students to learn all they can about drumming and become the best musicians possible.

METHODS USED

For beginning and intermediate students, I offer my own rudiment book to start learning on a practice pad or snare drum. For learning drum set, I use a variety of books and resources. I will meet and discuss these options with each student to find the right book for them. For more advanced students, I have them transcribe entire songs from bands they enjoy. I create Spotify playlists for students so they can easily access a variety of styles of music. I also believe that students should attend music concerts occasionally to see live drummers and learn to understand how drums fit into different musical contexts.

LESSON STYLE

I believe that a good teacher is one that listens well and brings out the best qualities in their students. I will help young students learn the basics of drumming from rudiments, technique, and sight-reading. For more advanced students I am able to guide them into more complex topics such as musical creativity, feel, and improvisation. I will also be able to help students with the behavioral and psychological aspects of consistent practicing and live performing as I have a background in psychology. I hope to inspire all students to learn and appreciate drumming and more broadly, how music can provide an uplifting and rich experience throughout their lives.

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.
