I started studying the Drums when I was a teenager. I wanted to learn in order to improve my rhythm and timing on the guitar but I fell in love with the drums and continued private lessons and studied on my own so that I could create and record my own material. I started teaching in 2009 and have worked with over 100 students. Some of my favorite drummers are Chad Smith from RHCP's, Dave Grohl from Nirvana and Foo Fighters, Jimmy Chamberlin from Smashing Pumpkins, Roger Taylor from Queen, and many many more. There is not just one book that will give you everything you need so I teach from a number of books by different companies like Alfred, KJOS, Hal Leonard, Railroad media, song books, to individual pieces from music notes. I also create, print, and email custom lessons created on a program in my Mac. I use Pearl drums, Zildjian Cymbals, Roland electronic set, Sabian pad, LP cow bell and bongos, Vick Firth sticks, Tama Iron cobra double bass pedal, Evens and Remo heads. It usually takes around 2 - 3 months for beginner to start catching on and be able to play beats, rudiments, and songs. It really depends on how much the student practices. It's my goal to help each student become the musician they desire to be. My philosophy is to teach my students to be smart musicians. What I mean by that is, it does you no good if you can play a song but don't know what you are actually doing. So, I teach students to be smart musicians in case they decide to write their own music or join a band. I have not won any music awards yet, but I have had people use my bands demo music in some commercial videos online and my lead guitarist Brian Gresh played on American Idol with "Queen" and toured with them for 2 years. We are working on recording an Album and the sky is the limit.

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

To the point... Matthew is very good at knowing where you should start. Instead of pulling out basic rudiments from the start, Matthew had me play my set first. It was then he got a good understandin
