I work to develop a vocabulary on the drum set that translates through all styles of music. My lessons employ a routine that works well for beginners as well as more advanced players by the option to add difficulty incrementally. This routine gives consistency to the lessons and makes it easy to gauge progress. I teach my students to read music and I explain music theory as it applies to the exercises and work at hand.
I have been playing / studying the drum set for over 25 years. I have taken lessons from some of the best teachers on the West Coast and brought the best of their knowledge into my lessons.

I am a musician, educator, and arranger from Seattle Washington. I received my education from the University of Washington with a BA/BM in Music Performance (Jazz Studies – Drumset). While at UW, I studied with John Bishop, Garey Williams, Tom Collier, Steve Korn, Mark Ivester, Josh Woodman, Jeff Wade, and was a member of the UW Drumline under David Reeves.

I love playing drums, and I love teaching others how to play drums.

My teaching technique is learner-centered. I work with students to help them build a strong vocabulary of drum rudiments and have them apply their newly acquired drumming knowledge to the songs and genres that interest them most. I have found this to be ideal for those at the beginning and intermediate levels. For the advanced drummers out there, I may be able to assist with some minor application of technique or perhaps deviate from standard drumming practices to acquire a fuller awareness of the body's interaction with not only the drumsticks and drum set, but how to maintain total postural awareness.
Many years of drum instruction with students who have learned best with alternative learner-centered approaches including: extreme patience, slow to fast repetition of patterns and exercises, focused breathing, as well as sight-reading, rhythm and ear training. Students with: Asperger's, Autism, Dyslexia and related states have benefited greatly.
