About Me

I was born in Charlestown West Virginia. My musical career started at age 3 when my parents placed a pair of drum sticks in my hands. I started playing drums in church and then progressed to play in middle school where I was apart of the jazz band and orchestra. With some very early lessons, I begin to blossom into a skillful drummer. I then continued to play in bands in high school and, in addition, became apart of the Milford Mill Academy Marching Band. In my sophomore year, I became the section leader of the drum line where I played the snare drum. I have 2 degrees in music theory from Deer Park Magnet school and Morgan State University. I have performed with many bands from different musical genres such as gospel, funk, pop, jazz, blues, rock, Latin, reggae, and R&B. In 2004 I became the only drumming instructor at The Psalms of David School Of Music. In 2011 I started and became the principle of the New Antioch Baptist Church School of Music. I have recorded with a variety of musical artists and currently plays full time at the New Antioch Baptist Church of Randallstown. In 2012, I recorded my first DVD entitled, "Piper's Time 2 Groove". Throughout the last 24 years of my drumming career, I still have the passion and fun as if it were day 1. Within the last 12 years, I have taken that same passion for playing and have transferred that energy into all of my students. I welcome all students any age, any skill level. Hope to have you as a new student soon!

*** Lesson Details ***
My students will quickly learn the basics of drumming, including: stick control, technique, rhythms, drum fills, and licks. It does not matter if you are a beginner, intermediate or advanced drummer. The same time and effort will be exercised. We will have a fun and meaningful time playing, both by ear and by reading music. These lessons will really be hands on using teaching methods such as music books, DVD’s, and playing of my own. Students will have a great time also studying music theory, learning how to assemble the drum set, learning the parts of the drums, how to tune the drums, and how to accompany other musical instruments. After 3 to 6 months taking lessons, all students will be well on their way to a very successful musical career having had such fun and learning to play all different styles of music. My motto: Lets play Good, get Better, and be our Best!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Finished basement: drum set, small studio, seating for students & guest.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will bring snare and sticks. For the more advance lesson drum kit if one not provided. For the beginners sticks snare and if they already have a drum kit that is fine too.

About Me

I graduated from Nova Southeastern University in Ft. Lauderdale, FL.

I have a Master's Degree (2013) in Education teaching various subjects and Masters in Biology (2013), both from Nova Southeastern University.

I teach various subjects for over 6 years using the traditional a methods.

I personalize every lesson, and always set goals for my students.

I teach any age and any level, and always stress that learning a new information needs a lot of patience, persistence and repetitions. My lessons are customized to my students needs, and are work in progress as they needs may change over time. I always encourage my students to tell me about their preferences, so I can incorporate them in their lessons.

*** Travel Equipment ***
The students needs to have their books & materials available as well as a pencil. I always stress with my students to be organized and prepared for their lesson, this way they will be able to focus better during the lesson. I also ask that the room where the lesson takes place to be free of any distractions, such other siblings or any other noise. The quiet environment helps in faster learning.

*** Lesson Details ***
30 minute lesson - Typically do 10 to 12 minutes of warm-up and the rest of the time is devoted to practical application of technique to your songs, as well as, performance aspects. I also offer hour lessons.

About Me

Formerly employed by the non-profit Playworks: Education Energized and currently volunteering for GoSTL as well as the Megan Meier Anti-Bully Organization… I have a degree in Sociology and Anthropology and was raised to not make money but make a difference…. however I do need to pay bills like everyone else :)

my passion is with kids, I love organizing games that trick them into learning under the guise of playing. I have been successful with this by my natural silliness, resourcefulness, dedication and approachability.
