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 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.

I was the lead drummer in both my high school's award-wining jazz band and the jazz ensemble at the University of Pittsburgh. I have a background in rock and jazz drumming and music theory. I will emphasize drum fundamentals and independence on the drum set, and the second half of the lessons will be up to you! I will aspire to create a passion for drumming by tailoring my lessons to your interests!
