Overview:

I have been playing drums and percussion for over 25 years and teaching for over 15 years. I have taught all age and level of students.  I love music. I love to share my love of music with my students. I will teach you what you want to learn, from rock and roll to marching band, I'm all about it. I believe we all share the same goal in music, we want to sound good! I will use my education, experience and passion to help you reach your goals.  

EXPERIENCE

I have a Master of Music Performance degree from Valdosta State University where I served as Graduate Assistant. I instructed the Marching Band drum line and steel drum band and performed with practically every ensemble the university offered. I have taught privately for over 15 years with students' ages ranging 5 to adult. I taught High School at Northview High School in Johns Creek GA, Middle School at Dekalb PATH Academy in Atlanta GA and at LaGrange College in LaGrange GA. I can be heard on iTunes playing with Kayla Taylor Jazz, Jeremy Aggers, and Golden.

METHODS USED

Percussion in a huge family of instruments. As a percussionist, you might be ask to play drum set one night, congas the next, and triangle the night after that! Over time, I have collected many methods for all the different instruments and styles that the percussionfamily  encompasses. Depending on what you want to learn, I have a method or we can tailor something just for you.

LESSON STYLE

I believe the only way to get better at something is through dedication and practice. We will set goals for each lesson and for each practice week. I also believe that it's better to practice a little everyday than a lot once or twice a week.  Step by step, little by little, any student can reach their goals.

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.
