I've been playing with classical ensembles and rock bands since 2001. Even though I started on classical trombone and rock guitar, I have come to expand my repertoire to a variety of instruments and genres. During my time in college I performed with the University choir, orchestra, and band. I also have organized, wrote/arranged for, and performed with a variety of bands in my home state of New Mexico, as well as Japan, and the San Francisco Bay Area.
Since 2006 I have been an active teacher. This profession has taken me everywhere from working with classical guitar classes in New Mexico high schools to Elementary students in Japan to a variety of private students of various musical instruments and genres everywhere I've been.

I recently completed my Master of Arts in Jazz Studies from San Jose State with an emphasis in drum set performance and jazz composition. I also completed my Bachelor of Music in Music Education from San Jose State where I mainly studied snare drum, timpani, and mallet percussion, but also studied the fundamentals in brass, woodwinds, strings, and voice. Additionally, I took private jazz drum set lessons to focus on becoming a versatile musician and teacher.
As an undergraduate student I had the opportunity to teach percussion courses at a music camp to students between the ages of 6 and 17 that had no prior music experience.

Drum Set studies focus on learning stick technique, different musical styles, applying drum rudiments to the set, and being able to play from music notation. I can help students find an ergonomic way to play around the conventional drum kit while learning the art of musical expression.
I am an aspiring musician and drum set artist who has previously taught private and group lessons in Southern California. I have several years of live performance experience involving a myriad of musical styles and would love to spread my knowledge and love of drums and music to new students. Currently, I am about to complete a Bachelor of Music degree in Jazz Studies at San Jose State University, and have studied with several world class private instructors (including Trey O'Toole, Matthew Talmage, and Jason Lewis), lending to a unique approach to the instrument and teaching. Focus on the drum set involves the ability to get students counting, reading, and playing in a musical and dynamic way while having fun and working towards the student's individual goal.

I fell in love with the drum set when I was 11 years old and never looked back. I have always enjoyed playing a variety of styles and therefore I am comfortable teaching in multiple styles. Some of my favorites to play are funk, rock, reggae, Latin styles, and hip-hop. I can also provide students with a firm foundation in reading music and rudimental drumming technique.
After graduating from the University of Virginia in 2010 with degrees in History and Music, I spent several years touring and recording with artists on the East Coast, teaching as many as 20 private lessons a week, and learning to play tabla (Indian hand drums) to keep my own musical education alive and moving forward. I have a passion for music of all kinds, and specifically for drums and percussion. As a result of my diverse tastes, I have quite an eclectic performance background. Over the last decade I have performed with rock and metal bands, jazz ensembles, percussion ensembles, various independent singers and songwriters, musical theater productions, African drum ensembles, and even played tabla for a contemporary dance company back in Virginia.
Recently my girlfriend and I ...
