I have developed a natural teaching method that focuses on learning and understanding the building blocks of drum set playing, familiarizing and connecting these building blocks, and applying them to individual expression. I have the ability to take nearly anyone without prior drum set or rhythmic experience, and, within days, turn them into beat playing drummers! My approach focuses on:
-building an understanding and relationship with each drum
-the basic rudimentary foundation of drumming
-how to approach the drums, hold the sticks, set up the drums, and tune the drums
-basic mechanical techniques
-development of each limb
-learning how to read basic drum charts and play to them
-learning and playing the most significant beats and patterns in the history of drum set
-gaining the ability to effectively teach oneself how to improve as a drummer
-learning your favorite songs on drums
-how to play in a band
Drum- Let me bring my over 40 years of performance, and over 30 years of teaching experience to your drum lessons.
I played Snare Drum in the drum line in the University of Alabama Million Dollar Band for four years. I am very experienced in rudimental snare drum and can help you learn the 26 basic rudiments as well as the advanced rudiments, and their application. If you're practicing for a drum line audition, I can help you set up a practice schedule, and we can work on your material together. Set yourself a goal and reach it!
Drumming for over 20 years and a graduate from Berklee School of Music, I focus on creating a unique and exciting lesson plan for each of my students. Whichever styles you choose to focus on, each lesson will lead you closer to your goals. Things we can cover include:

- Improving your reading/sight reading
- Getting your marching and rudimental chops up
