ABOUT
Degrees / Training / Special Info:

BA, Michigan State University

Overview:

I am a positive and patient instructor who LOVES teaching others about the exciting world of drums and percussion!

I am originally from Michigan but have been living in Southern California for the past 10 years. I moved to California to pursue music and continue teaching. On top of teaching, I am a semi professional musician. I currently work with 3 projects. One of which has released their 3rd studio album and recently went on a tour of Europe. So my knowledge and experience continues to grow and I can pass that on to my students.

EXPERIENCE

I have been playing music for over 25 years. I have been a successful part of Rock Bands, Jazz Bands, Blues Bands, Marching Bands, etc. So, whatever style of music you are interested in or wanting to learn, I can help!

I have been teaching for 15 years and have worked with students of all ages and skill levels. On top of that, I have spent the past 6+ years honing my skills for Training, Coaching, and Developing. So, I can promise two things. You will get results and you will have FUN! I will design your lessons around you and your goals......not mine!

METHODS USED

I typically use a lot from my marching band days to get students warmed up and really fine tune their technique and coordination. From there it truly depends on the student's goals and skill levels.

I like to work on specific songs the student wants to learn or use other pieces that apply directly to what the student is trying to achieve. From there I break everything down to the basics and slowly build upon that.

Two specific tools I use for every student are the 40 essential rudiments and The Grid Book Series.

LESSON STYLE

Ultimately, my goal is to make sure you enjoy yourself and want to keep coming back. In that process I will make sure you get results. I design my curriculum for each individual. This is because everyone has their own goals, there own level of ability, and their own needs as far as how to get there.

I like to strike a balance of fun and functionality with my lessons. I believe having an understanding of Music Theory is necessary to progress, no matter what the goal. I incorporate this in every lesson and it vary depends on the students goals and skill level. Along with that, I make sure to focus on what the student actually wants to achieve (i.e. play a certain song on the drumset, learn how to improvise, etc.).

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.
