My teaching style is very flexible & hands on. My goal is to make beautiful music and I do this by taking technical exercises and giving them musical meaning. This means I focus on the ideas of time, vocabulary & dynamic playings, but within this still teaching essential technical exercises in order to create a well-rounded musician. After each lesson I will email detailed notes, as well as any supplemental documents and/or music.

I break down drumming to its most basic rudiments so that you will grow by leaps and bounds instead of just crawling along. You have to walk before you can run so getting it right initially is very important to moving forward and getting you playing your favorite songs quickly and accurately..
