About Me

Your
relationship with music & your chosen instrument is unique &
will  be life long.  I look forward to sharing  your
excitement as we pursue the path to comfort, confidence & the
eventual, inevitable joy you will achieve with your new friend.

Whether  you are 5, 25, or  perhaps 75 years old when you make the decision to enter the world of music, you will be changing your life for the positive.  

*** Lesson Details ***
In a very calm, easy going atmosphere you can expect to laugh a bit, as it is called 'playing' music! You will have an understanding of how to read & play a minimum 3 songs each month, & will be picking up enough music theory as it applies to your instrument each week to feel confident & inspired to continue on as far as you desire. We will learn how to 'play well with others' in informal as well as more structured gatherings every few months, with no pressure, only compassion & encouragement.

For those wishing to join in the fun of playing bluegrass music, we will start out with technique exercises, scales, basic melodies & accompaniment patterns to prepare you to learn this unique & exciting style of American music. There are many gatherings in the area called 'Pickin' Parties' that I want to get you ready to participate in as soon as is humanly possible.

If you are one of those brave souls undertaking the lovely but challenging fretless instrument, the violin, my main focus is to get you started with the all the necessary basic techniques - holding the instrument & bow correctly, getting the best possible tone & pitch using efficiency & accuracy, mixed with a great deal of ear training & heart.

Specific songs you'd like to learn? Your reward for accomplishing what I deem necessary on whichever instrument you've chosen will be for us to listen to your desired piece & writing it out in either or tablature or standard notation.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Lesson studios contain piano, electronic keyboard, electronic drum set, music stand, tuner, metronome, manuscript books available for purchase, easy parking in the well lit front lot.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Student must have own instrument & be willing to purchase necessary tools as recommended for their instrument, such as, music stand, tuner, pick, book, strap, etc.

*** Specialties ***
Bluegrass, Country, Country Rock, Contemporary Christian, Americana, Ragtime Blues Guitar, Fingerstyle, Flatpick, Accompaniment

Drum, Percussion

About Me

I can help you achieve your drumming goals, whether it is to simply enjoy playing your favorite song, make the drum line, win all district/all state competition, earn a significant scholarship to college, or play "Twist and Shout" in your wedding, I have done it all.

I wrote and published a drumset method book that teaches students how to play solos, fills, beats, and improvise.

I earned a bachelor's of music performance, theory, and composition from the College of William and Mary and have over 15 years of teaching experience. I teach all the major kinds of drumming: drumset, marching and concert snare drum, mallets, timpani, and auxiliary percussion.

*** Lesson Details ***
I believe that students learn the best when they are having fun. I do everything possible to provide a positive learning environment that will result in a lifetime of music appreciation. I adopt my teaching style to meet the students' goals. If you are taking lessons for pleasure, I will be more laid back while still challenging you to progress. If you have a competitive standard, I will prepare you to compete at the highest level. I also believe that you are learning the most when you are playing, so I have one drum set in my studio (Mapex Saturn Pro 7 piece with double bass). I will also write solos, duets etc. to help you develop a deeper understanding of technique and concepts.

After 3 - 6 months of lessons with me, you can expect to be able to play along with several of your favorite songs as well as play classic songs with great drum beats. You will also know how to improvise, play solos, and have a good repertoire of beats and fills.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can bring speakers to do play along songs

*** Specialties ***
Classical percussion instruments: Mallets, snare drum, auxiliary, and Timpani
Marching percussion
Drum set - Rock, Latin, Jazz, Double Bass drumming

About Me

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect the student to have the instrument they are wanting to learn.

*** Specialties ***
I have taught drums and piano for over 7 years. However, professionally I have been playing drums for 4 years in live and studio situations. The only included music recording in reference to the fact that I can teach musicians how to effectively record in a studio situation. I wouldn't be the teacher for engineering work.
