I Love music, and I love people. I feel that music is and has historically been a way of interpreting and expressing all the diversity in life and our experiences and that our instruments are our tool of expressing, whether it be the drum, guitar, piano, voice, sitar, etc. My inevitable goal here is to help you(student) obtain the technical, theoretical understanding to help you express your own message and story musically and or achieve any musical standard that one connects too and wishes too achieve.
Teaching Philosophy -
My teaching philosophy is really built on well rounded communication and multiple facets of explanation and examples so that a student can truly understand and learn a topic, surrounded in a very humorous, light and supportive environment.

I teach how to read rhythms and how to groove!
I have taught private guitar, piano, bass and drum lessons since the late 70s in Salt Lake City, where I majored in jazz guitar performance, and since 1980 in Los Angeles. I make the lessons fun. Some of my students have received college scholarships and won cash prizes for music contests. All of them had fun while learning and improving on their instruments.
*** Lesson Details ***
I am very enthusiastic and can teach students how to read. If they do not want to read music, they can learn to play by ear. I can also show them where to put their fingers. During piano lessons, I often accompany students on guitar and suggest a scale for improvisation, so they can play the blues. During drum lessons, I often play bass so they can learn to groove.

My lessons focus on technique, reading, and application. I will provide the student with exercises to practice between lessons. My teaching will adjust according to the student's level, pace, and goals.
My goal for my students is to have an understanding on how to use their instrument, develop versatility, discover who they are as a musician, and have fun along the way!

I want to make sure my students have a good time learning percussion but I also want to make sure they learn a lot..! I always make sure to ask my students what they want to learn and what their favorite music is... after that, I figure out what type of lessons to plan out.
Ever since I received my first drum set from my family at age 8 I've been studying and playing percussion and drums. Immediately it became one of my passions in life.
In elementary school I expanded my musical circle and met friends who I still play music with today. I played drums for bands in elementary school, middle school and high school, including the school jazz ensembles and marching band. In my senior year of high school I joined Camerata (advanced boys & girls choir) as a tenor. I have also been part of various orchestras, concert bands, alternative, rock, jazz, and even metal ensembles with original music. Some of the notable bands I've performed with and/or still perform with are: Jr. Philharmonic Orchestra of California, San Fernando Valley Symphony, Los ...
