Drum, Music Theory, Percussion, Xylophone
I am a Certified Music Teacher for the State of Connecticut specializing in drum and percussion lessons. I have taught drums and percussion in the Connecticut area for the past seven years, and have had students go onto to pursue music endeavors after high school and even college. My mission is to make sure you or your child receives HIGH QUALITY instruction on a weekly basis.
I strive to make each lesson extremely organized and engaging, ensuring that you or your child are having FUN while learning the fundamentals of drumming.
Topics covered in lessons are (but no limited to):
- Rudiments (Snare Drum and how to apply them to the Drum Set)
- Music Notation Reading (being able to read music correctly will make lessons more worthwhile)
- Drum Set Grooves and Fills (Learn popular songs in a organized manner, with individualized lesson plans to learn each song)
- Different Styles of drumming (Rock, Funk, Swing, Metal, R&B and more!)

STUDYING WITH ME:
Learning guitar should be interesting and fun! While we're studying all the different aspects of the instrument, you'll also be learning how to play your favorite songs and solos! I approach each student as an individual and structure their lessons according to what I determine they need, as well as what they are interested in musically. I concentrate on many different areas; ear training, theory, playing technique, improvisation, various styles of music, and, the physics of the guitar. Understanding how the instrument works is important in my opinion. My long term goal is to teach a student how they can teach themselves down the line. Understanding why you’re playing something is just important as knowing how to play it. I aim to give a student rich and well rounded one-on-one time!
I have been teaching and performing for over a decade both in the US, and in England. I have played in various bands and have produced independent artists. I have worked for a recording studio and for various academic institutions including the Filomen M. D'Agostino Greenberg Music School in New York city.
I obtained my degree from Purchase College in New York and am a member of their Conservatory of Music.
*** Lesson Details ***
I construct lessons for each individual student depending on their musical tastes, goals, and current skill level etc. I want each person to get as much from their time studying with me as possible. Within three to six months, I'll have you working on timing, theory, ear training, improv, and songs/styles of music you may be interested in. I'm laid back, however, I expect at least the minimum practice time between lessons, which I'll change throughout the course of our time together depending on your skill level etc. Practice materials I draw up are included. I write out everything in plain English and do not require the use of sheet music!
*** Studio Equipment ***
Small recording studio, piano, various guitars, bass, and amps.
*** Travel Equipment ***
guitar, bass, laptop, digital recorder.
*** Specialties ***
I concentrate on ear training, improvisation, and explore styles ranging from pop, alternative, rock, prog, and blues, to metal, funk, and folk etc. I do not require sight reading skills for any level of student. Rather, I work with the student with theory and arrangement conventions to really understand the music. This intern, greatly sharpens their musical ear and helps them to learn music much faster because they understand how it is put together; why and how it works, etc.
