Students can expect a fun approach to drums in our lessons. I always tailor the curriculum to each individual and make sure there is never a dull moment, all while keeping track of progress as we set goals together. From beginner to advanced, my experience can help anyone down the path toward becoming a better drummer, whether it's picking up sticks for the first time or preparing for a college audition.
In my lessons I strive to make the maximum progress possible, while also having as much fun as possible. This is accomplished by imparting the most valuable, useful, and beneficial information in a fun and relaxed, low pressure environment, always with the students goals and priorities first and foremost. I also like to keep the student challenged at their current ability level.
For beginning students I stress basic fundamentals, just as you would in sports. It makes progress come at a much faster clip and avoids making time consuming corrections later. The longer you play with bad habits, the harder they are to break.
For more advanced students, I assess their current abilities, determine if any problems need to be addressed, and with their goals in mind, come up with the proper plan of action.

dy for me and all of his other students. Many years ago, I was lucky enough to have a professor in the Civil & Environmental Engineering Department at UCLA who had the ability to provide the perfect amount of background, not too much, not too little, in his graduate courses so that no matter what the student’s undergraduate degree was in, there was never a problem with them understanding the newly introduced graduate level concepts. And now, I am lucky enough that I found a drum instructor who was willing to take on an old guy (remember the many, many years ago stuff above ) and work around my problems with arthritis, senior moments, bad vision, and an occasional decrease in motivation. While I am probably his oldest student (a distinction I could have lived without), I have listened to him work with several younger, in some cases way younger, students and he is another one of those special people who can teach. Not everybody can teach. Of those that can, many don’t teach well. And, of those that can teach well, not all of them can teach well to people with a broad range of backgrounds, skill sets, motivations, and ages. Tony has the ability to teach well, no matter what your circumstances."
