I have been teaching drum lessons for 15 years and one thing that I have learned throughout the years is that every student is different. I make it my goal to ensure that every student is taught to their needs, desires and inspirations. When I am teaching I don't just go through a checklist, but rather, I search to find what inspires my students. It's important to me that my students are not only motivated to practice, but that they also gain an understanding of how to learn on their own.
I have been teaching drums to all ages for the past 10 years. I have learned drums from Derico Watson, Fred Knapp, Alvaro Lopez, Mike Clark and Virgil Donati. Have the satisfaction that the majority of my students are active players and going places. I have toured many many cities across the United States. I have played and filled in for some international Latin Christian artists. I played and recorded with my former hard rock band nonstop for 4 years.
I believe that all drumming comes down to solid technique and fundamentals. I can help beginners lay the foundation for their technique, or more advanced students continue to refine their touch, time and expression in all styles of drumming.
Interested drummers will learn the basics, such as beats, measures, time-keeping and different rudimentary exercises that will help you get better. Eventually, as you progress and can figure out different beats, we'll advance to doing fills and even double-bass.
