BEGINNERS can expect to understand reading basic rhythm, strokes & rudiments. I promise that beginners will also be playing variations of a rock beat within our first few lessons. INTERMEDIATE/ADVANCED students can expect to see new applications of real life tools for the player looking to gig or improve their performance. I teach to read & write(extremely beneficial for a professional future in music and drumming, i.e., paid gigs, teaching), but also to IMPROVISE & put practicing to clever use.
Lessons are customized for the students based on their interest and experience. I will always cover the basics and rudiments with new students but allow them to create and follow their own musical path using a variety of methods and lesson plans.
I was a percussionist for a symphony in Montana for 5 years and have taught percussion, Middle and High School Band, for over 10 years.
I like to design a curriculum for each student based on their ability level, direction and commitment using tried and true methods.
Expectations I have:
Students will learn how to read music
Purchase recommended items (sticks, books, hearing protection, ect.)
Come prepared for lessons
For younger students or beginners, I always suggest 30 minute lessons weekly, while Intermediate and advanced students may benefit more from 45 minute or 60 minute lessons, weekly or biweekly.
