I teach beginner to intermediate drums students who want to work up to more advanced playing.
When you have rhythm....who needs music? The drum is the most fun of all, no blowing, plucking, or bowing...just beat on it! There is literally rhythm everywhere at all times, and I can help you play along.
Drums have been such a wonderful supplement to my overall musicianship (piano primarily) that I continually practice my old rudiments and practice random percussion instruments on a daily basis. Even though I do not have a degree in drums, I teach them (and play) well.
I have been teaching drums for 8 years now, and have been fortunate enough to play in many different styles of bands, including alternative, jazz, marching (snare and quints), pop, country and more.
Students can expect rapid growth from my lessons as well as having a great time and enjoying music!
Andy began teaching drums about 7 years ago. He noticed quickly that all students learn at different paces. That's when he began structuring lessons around each individual student rather than teaching one certain curriculum. His goal is for students to enjoy learning the drums at their own pace and to be gently nudged only when they are ready. Even after 20 years of drumming, Andy remembers the problems he had learning and does his best to impart the solutions to his students on their level.
I consider myself a coach rather than a teacher. Rhythm is about breathing, posture, and attitude! Play like you mean it.
I base a lot of my teaching in the essentials like rudiments, the Moelor hand technique, relaxed stick control, independence, feels etc. This approach allows the drumming muscles and mind to work with multiple styles.
I instruct using songs and exercises. I will guide you whatever way you choose to go!
