Subjects Taught

Drum, Music Recording, Percussion

About Me

I am a professional percussionist and recording engineer with a Bachelors in Music Technology from Duquesne University. I have been playing for 14 years and am versed in in many drumming styles including rock, funk, jazz, Afro-Cuban, and Brazilian. As a recording engineer I have recorded every genre from classical to metal. I cover everything from sound theory and physics to hands on application.

*** Lesson Details ***
Beginning lessons involve the rudimentary study of rhythm and their application to drumming as a whole. Building a sense of independence in each hand so that both are equally as comfortable and strong will be emphasized. From their students will learn the intricacies of the drumset and develop a sense of interdependence between their limbs. I will start the student with a general overview of all the different styles and as they progress we will focus in on their preferred style. A strong emphasis will be placed on how to play with other musicians and I will accompany the student on either piano or guitar.

For recording and music technology students, beginners will start with a broad overview of what studies encompasses these fields. From their we will focus in on the students topic of choice and begin with practical application to get students working with the tools and technology available to them. Afterwards, we will move into more advanced studies including sound theory, physics, digital formats, etc.

About Me

I am currently a 3rd-year Mechanical Engineering student at the University of Pittsburgh and I have a strong educational background in mathematics, general sciences, and all around academics. I have also been a musician for 12 years of my life. Drumset and percussion are my strongest areas in music but I am also adequately skilled at guitar and singing.

I have a strong passion for teaching and would love nothing more than for my students to excel.
