I've played drums for over 20 years in orchestral settings, bands, solos and more. I was a music minor in college and I play other instruments as well. I currently enjoy watching students grow and learn new things.
Drum, Music Performance, Percussion
I have been teaching for 13 yrs. and playing for 32 yrs. I absolutely love to watch the learning process take shape. I get a great deal of joy from teaching and witnessing students pass and achieve greatness. When they overcome what seem like insurmountable odds to them and then they perform something flawlessley, especially in a live setting, It just does not get any better than this!! I cannot imagine doing anything else with my time!
I have an uncanny ability to connect with each individual student and create a personal lesson plan for each and every unique personality! Depending on the person, I will personally tailor a lesson plan for that individual based on their natural ability, coordination skills, mindset, musicality and overall rhythmic sense. I also try to give each and every student the confidence needed to get up in front of an audience or crowd of people and still perform with elegance and dignity. JUST RELAX AND PLAY! That is what it is all about, right, having fun!!
Drum, Music Performance, Percussion
I am by trade a musician who specializes in drums and drum education. I have played as a professional musician in the Salt Lake City, UT, and greater Los Angeles, CA, areas. My project involvement ranges from hip hop, metal, jazz, funk, blues, indie, reggae/ska, rock, pop, fusion, singer/songwriter, and electronica.
I instruct private lessons and workshop sessions to students of all ages, including those with varying levels of experience. I have also expanded my knowledge base by being included on tracks and albums of many professionally recorded albums.
I am a graduate of the Musicians Institute college of contemporary music in Hollywood, CA, with a performance degree for drums and percussion.
