Overview:
I'm a passionate and motivated instructor who loves working with students and sharing my love of music. I have been involved with music ever since I was young, whether it was playing for my church, performing and teaching drumlines, or performing live or in studio with different musicians and bands around the midwest. Most of my favorite memories in life involve music, and I want to be able to share my passion with others. 
EXPERIENCE
With nearly 14 years of playing and performing experience, and 5 years teaching professionally, I am able to offer my students a diverse range of educational resources. I have been a part of the Marking Percussion activity for almost 10 years, 4 of which have been teaching. I was also a part of a professional band for 7 years which gave me the opportunity to be a session drummer in many different studios around South Eastern Michigan. I have the knowledge and ability to teach many different styles on drum set, concert percussion, and marking percussion.
METHODS USED
For beginners, I typically start with Stick Control: For the Snare Drummer by George Lawrence Stone, and The Drumset Musician by Rod Morganstein. Once the student has grasped the fundamentals, I sculpt the lesson plan depending on the style(s) the student would like to learn, from Rock and Funk to Jazz, Latin and more. For intermediate to advanced students, I try to figure out what goals the student would like to achieve, and then plan a lesson that will help the student achieve those goals.
LESSON STYLE
In my lessons, I like to start by helping the student really fall in love with drumming. You should only take lessons if you love and enjoy what you are doing. Then, I like to lay down a good foundation of rudiments and technique. I believe that by having a good understanding of rudiments and technique, it will greatly help eliminate many future setbacks when learning new/different styles. Without setbacks, the future always looks brighter.

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
