I would not be the person I am today if music wasn't the focal point in my life as it is. Not only do I absolutely love performing and studying music myself, but I adore teaching as well. Part of the musical experience is taking what you hear and what you learn from others and building on it to create your own musical contributions. I take the gifts other teachers and musicians have given me very seriously and subsequently feel the great importance of imparting my knowledge unto others. Whether you want to be a professional, or just be competent enough to enjoy yourself, we all practice, study technique and gain knowledge about music with really only one goal in mind: To have all the tools necessary to express ourselves adeptly through music. All the technique in the world will not ...
Teaching a beginner student conjures up those same old feelings of discovery I recalled when I first laid hands on the instrument. I am very patient and easy going which creates a very relaxed learning environment. Conversely, teaching the intermediate student allows me to take them to the next level. It is very fulfilling to watch them grow and see some of my ideas reflected and transformed into their own unique playing styles. Teaching an advanced student allows me to share all I have learned and honed over the years. Some advanced students are excellent players but have little to no reading skills. I believe reading is beneficial in the sense that it can decipher or make sense of a particular difficult time signature or drum fill/beat that would otherwise be problematic.
My goal as a teacher is to share all the knowledge and experience I have acquired over 30+ years of drumming. Based on my education from such a diversity of teachers and institutions, I have much to offer. I use many techniques to help the student retain what he or she has learned and teach in a simple, intuitive manor. I am a friendly, patient, compassionate person who will always make you feel comfortable while you learn. My journey started at the age of 8 when I began private lessons for 8 years. I then studied Afro-Caribbean and Brazilian styles of drumming at the prestigious Drummers Collective in Manhattan. My fascination of these particular genres lead me to a renowned teacher by the name of Richie Rodriguez, who refined my hand drumming skills and advanced reading concepts. These ...

Here are a few reasons why drums are important and just awesome:
1. No one can rock out like a drummer.

3. Percussion is a vital element of every musical style — from rock and blues to R & B to Caribbean.
4. Good drumming has always been the hallmark of hit songs.
5. You have always had great rhythm and musical interest, and now you want to put it to some good use.
6. Drumming will sharpen your concentration and hone your listening skills.
7. You don't need a Ph.D. in music theory to play the drums.
8. Drumming relieves stress and allows you to explore creative expression.
