Learn how to rock those drums!
From how to hold a stick and drum rudiments through reading advanced from music and playing to a click track
I offer a comprehensive program that can accommodate any student's specific needs or interests. It is important to me that the student learns to play the drums for the sake of a musical context, rather than focusing on technique. I teach technique as a tool for making music. I aim to teach people how to be musicians first and foremost, and how to be drummers second.
I cover all aspects of Drumming including Technique, Reading and Song Performance.
My conveniently located studio is clean, comfortable, and completely equipped. I have two drum sets, pad stations for singe surface learning, professional audio and video recording gear. Large screen monitor for DVD and Internet Video learning. Decades of periodicals for each lesson to be personalized to the individual needs of each student.

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."
