Overview

I was an engineering tutor at University of Texas at Austin from 2006-2009. I graduated from UT with a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering in 2009. I am very familiar with the UT engineering courses (from the beginning to the end).

While I was at UT, I also studied jazz drumming with Brannen Temple. I have been playing professionally for over ten years with lots of different bands. Teaching and playing music are the most gratifying things for me. But I also like to teach math!

I have been teaching high school math, physics, and music theory at Premier High School of North Austin for five years (2009-2014). I am a certified teacher by the state of Texas.

Aaron is a great instructor. He is patient and interacts very well with my 6-year-old. She likes the drums he has available to play on, especially the crash cymbol :)

My 9-year-old daughter is absolutely loving her lessons with Aaron. His enthusiasm for the instrument is contagious and his patient encouragement is just what she needs to stay motivated. Having been through two other disappointing drum teachers before this, we are thrilled to have found Aaron!
