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!
*** Lesson Details ***
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 modo is "music first," so all lessons develop naturally from a song or style that ...

Do you have two left arms and two left feet (or two rights of each if you're left-handed), and have no idea how to coordinate behind your drumset?
Do you want to be able to accurately listen to a song and "play it" on your steering wheel as you drive?
Do you constantly have trouble maintaining speed, slowing down or speeding up for no reason?
How about wanting to go all-out and learning those crazy double-bass parts and snare rolls popular in today's extreme metal?
I require a practice pad for lessons to learn rudiments and coordination techniques, even if it's just a mouse pad taped to a heavy book to start with. If you continue taking lessons, I can recommend the best practice pad for you.
I typically will teach and write drums using a combination of tablature and standard sheet music. Tablature a simple set of lines and X marks that are much easier to read, and once learned will instantly give you access to thousands of songs.
You'll learn how to keep time with ...
