In my 18 years of teaching, I've developed a very simple philosophy of "music first." My students will listen to a lot of music, learn how to break it down into small bits, and then build it back up again so they can perform with confidence. I often incorporate technology to make the process fun and easy. I have over 40 books in my drum library, but much of our lesson time will be spent making good use of the student's computer, phone, and MP3 collection.
I've been studying the drums for 26 years, and am still very passionate about learning and teaching. I've toured in over 12 countries, been signed, played with Grammy nominated artists, and have performed with just about any type of ensemble you can imagine from cool electronic acts to large classical ensembles to swinging big bands. I'm married and live in Philadelphia. I enjoy cooking, movies, books, art, working out and learning about music!

I have 40+ drum books in my collection, but you will more often find me transcribing songs for my students on the spot or recording a drum part on your phone so you can play along with me in between lessons. My motto is "music first," so all lessons develop naturally from a song or style that ...
I've been teaching drums for 6 years. My main focus is musicality keeping time while playing with other musicians. I also encourage my students to work on their reading skills. In the lessons my students and I work on meaningful, real-world playing situations.
Learning music, especially at a young age, can have a positive impact in life. From simply playing music in the home to performing music for large audiences, the basic goal is the same: the enjoyment of being a proficient musician. I have written a bit about my experience and how I can use this to help you to become a great musician.
I began studying music when I was 8 years old. My early lessons taught me not only about music but about music teaching. As a result of these experiences, I vowed to teach students music that is meaningful to them.
Moving along, in high school I played in rock bands with my friends. I can never stress how important it is to play with other people. I always encourage my students to ...
