Learning to play an instrument begins with loving music!
The first question I ask a new student is: "What makes you want to play an instrument?". Some people want to play rock, others pop, and others have many different interests, but it all begins with a love for music.
I teach my students to play their favorite songs right from the start. I believe that when you learn music by figuring it out on your own -- by learning to listen -- you gain something very valuable that you can take with you no matter what your musical goals are.
I'm not a strict teacher, but I believe in being disciplined when it comes to the fundamentals. If you have good technique, it frees you to play anything you want to play.
In a typical hour-long lesson, my beginning students spend from 10-30 minutes on the fundamentals, depending on how much time the student has to practice at home. The rest of the lesson is spent applying what we've learned.
It usually takes just a few months before ...
I started playing drums in my parents' basement when I was 9 years old. It was just me, a stereo, and a bunch of cardboard boxes I made into my first drumset. Every day, I listened to to my favorite songs over and over again to figure out how to play them. To me, there was nothing more awesome in the world than music.
Since then my musical journey has taken me far and wide. I've studied percussion and composition with world class teachers, toured Europe, composed music for commercials, co-written award winning songs, and performed with a variety of artists at such venues as the Hard Rock Cafe, BB King's, World Cafe, 55 Bar, The Living Room, The Bitter End, Shrine, Rockwood Music Hall, and many others. And the one thing that hasn't changed? I'm still totally in ...

Thanks for checking out my profile. I look forward to helping you reach your musical goals in drum and percussion! Here's a little info about my musical training:
Born in Istanbul, Turkey and raised in Tulsa, OK, my first musical experiences were on my grandmother's old piano. I was later introduced to a drum set when my brother and I received a drum set as a gift. I played in several local bands and in my high school jazz band in Tulsa, playing a range of musical styles from rock, swing, funk, and Latin. I decided in my senior year of high school to take music seriously and moved to NYC to study at the Drummer's Collective. During this period, I also focused on Middle Eastern hand percussion (doumbek, riq, and frame drum) and studied with Mehmet Akatay in Turkey. ...
To learn how to play the drums is not just learning how to play a beat or a groove, maybe even a song or a solo. Its learning self discipline and self sacrifice. Its learning how to breathe, how to become calm, and let go. It’s learning how your body was naturally designed to move. Its learning how to put all of yourself into something. It’s learning that the best things are learned slowly and mindfully. It’s learning that your mind and body are malleable clay, and you are the sculptor. And most importantly it’s learning that you are a powerful co-creator of your life and your destiny, and that whatever you dedicate yourself to, the universe will gladly remove all the seemingly impossible obstacles that stand in your way.
Music is more than my hobby, or my career, it is my life. I have had the opportunity to work with some great innovative drummers and musicians, and am very enthusiastic about sharing my knowledge of music with others. I am a very laid back person, but I have a lot of passion for music and drumming. I graduated Berklee College of Music as a drum set performance major in 2009 and I have been playing drums for the last 16 years. I am very excited to continue teaching and guide students into finding the unique artist within themselves.†

I have over 18 years of professional teaching experience on drum set, snare drum and percussion (timpani, two- & four-mallets, accessory percussion and hand drums), guitar, piano, electric bass and ukulele. I have been playing music since the age of two.
Some of my most noteworthy performances have included Late Show with David Letterman (Justin Townes Earle and Allison Moorer), Tonight Show with Jay Leno (Allison Moorer), Levon Helm'¬ôs Midnight Ramble (Allison Moorer), The Conan O'¬ôBrien Show (Julia Nunes) and Budokan in Tokyo, Japan (Jim Campilongo Trio).

In addition to my work as a performer, clinician and studio drummer, I've been teaching students privately for three decades. I work with each student individually - focusing on goal setting, and finding out what makes them passionate about drumming.
We then use very practical steps to get them toward those goals in a fun and efficient manner. In addition to the material covered, my teaching style focuses on motivation and inspiration, so that drumming is seen as an enjoyable experience!
