Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
There are certain basic skills that all drummers must possess regardless of what style of music they play. The mastery of those rudimentary skills is the foundation of my teaching practice, while keeping in mind each students individual needs and goals. I am currently teaching drumset, snare drum, timbales, bongo and beginner conga.
Experience the joy, passion, and expression of drumming and learn to play your favorite music on drum set. Learn rhythms & proper technique; how to play musically and improvise; how to “feel,” count, and notate music; and play along with almost any musical style! Drumming is also a great way for dancers to gain a deeper understanding of the rhythms that accompany their dancing.
I am a patient and attentive teacher who will create a course to suit your needs.
