I have been a drummer for 14 years of experience, performing in multiple bands genres ranging from Rock, Blues, Jazz, Punk, Country, and more. I began learning drums through Rock Band, yes.. I said a video game. After a month or two I was playing songs on hard or expert difficulty. I soon began applying the rhythms and rudiments I was learning in Rock Band to a real drum set. I began playing drums every day. I played in a few different bands in my teen years, recorded in studios and currently I accompany musicians around San Diego regularly. When you take lessons with me you can expect to build a strong foundation in counting rhythms, learn practical beat patterns, improve improvisation, learn to play along with a guitarist and/or bass player (me), and learn a wide array of songs and drum fills to prepare you for any situations you might have as a drummer. I also will give you my personal number to give you advice on buying gear, additional things to practice, and any questions you might have. My goal is to be a mentor and a friend that encourages and helps streamline your success as a drummer. I will give you tips and tricks and help you avoid costly mistakes that I've made as a drummer.
