EXPERIENCE

  I have played all styles of music in America and England over the past 40 years. I am a graduate of the “L.I.D.C. Studio Drumming Course” taught by Dom Famularo. In addition to teaching music and performing, I refinish drums and was the drum technician for Dare Recording Studios & Richmond Street Recording Studios.  

METHODS USED

  When you get behind your drums to practice, what is it that you’re working on? If you’re not taking lessons, you’re probably working on the same beats and fills that you’ve been playing for so many years that you could play them in your sleep. Let me help you expand your musical vocabulary while putting the excitement that comes from playing something new back into your drumming.      

LESSON STYLE

Some of the paths of study that any student can choose to pursue are: DOUBLE BASS DRUMMING, ODD TIME PATTERNS,  SYNCOPATION 4-WAY INDEPENDENCE,  SIGHT READING RUDIMENTS, CHART READING DRUM TUNING, RECORDING DRUMS
