I have been teaching for forty years. I started when I was in high school and my first student was dad's mechanic's son. He was four years old. About two years ago he found me on Facebook and it's a good feeling to know he plays professionally in a Metal Band! I've taught in every city that I have lived in and varied ages and levels from beginner to advanced students that play professionally but wanted to learn jazz for instance.
Rusted Root, Pittsburgh Symphony, Pittsburgh Jazz legends, you name it. Some of my teachers in the past have played drum set and/or classical percussion for these renowned ensembles. I have had the privilege of studying with them, gaining priceless knowledge that I impart to my students. As a wise man said, "it's easy when you know what you are doing." I promise to do my best to get you there, and to hopefully enjoy the ride as well!
I'm a relatively new teacher, I've been playing drums for 18 years and teaching for about 2 now. To new students, within the first few lessons you'll know how to properly set up and tune a drumset, how to hold the sticks, proper playing technique, . As time goes on you'll be able to play songs, do fills, know all of the basic rudiments, and how to work with a band. I specialize in rock and metal drumming. I love working with students of all experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!
