Teaching since:

I am a graduate of the famous Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA and have been performing professionally for years touring around the world playing with name bands such as the Glenn Miller Orchestra, the USAF Band of Liberty, and numerous professional bands of all styles. I have performed as the main theater drummer on 5-star Luxury Cruise Lines such as Princess, NCL, and Celebrity for ten years playing Vegas style, Rock, Motown, Jazz, and Broadway shows. I play a variety of styles and can teach you how to play Rock, Blues, Jazz, Big Band, Broadway, Classical/Concert music, and more. Many of these performances required sight-reading sheet music, which I can teach you how to do. I am very patient and encouraging and create a positive environment for you to learn. I am also very flexible and accommodating to your wants and needs in the lesson. Please contact me to set up a lesson so I can help you with whatever your goals are.
