Teaching since:
September 2004

I've been playing drums since I was 5 and teaching since I moved to NYC in 2004. I graduated from the New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music and have been performing ever since. In addition to playing I continue to practice and study, broadening concepts of music, rhythm, technique, and communication. I love sharing what I've learned hope it can help anyone on a similar path.
