I'm a Berklee alum who was fortunate to study with Alan Dawson, and still use a lot of what I learned from him in my teaching. I've toured around the world playing drums as well as recording on both coasts and CO, and I most recently taught at the Aurora School of Rock for 4 1/2 years. I tailor each lesson individually for each student to make the learning experience unique and educational. You won't learn if it isn't fun, and I make it fun.

About Carl H.

Hi, I've been playing drums since I was 13 and have gotten to play all over the US, up in Canada and in Japan. I've recorded many albums and still record to this day. Before I decided to do the teaching and recording thing from home, I taught for over 4 years at the Aurora CO School of Rock, so I have experience teaching students as young as 6.
I've opened for many National acts over the years including Bob Seger, Steve Martin and Joan Armatrading to name but a few and I've been able to ask all sorts of questions of the drummers I've met and I incorporate all that I've learned into my lessons, so I bring a pretty unique perspective to each student. Fun is always the goal, because drums are fun! I find a good balance between fundamentals and exploring the kit. Understanding your instrument and the role it plays in the bigger picture is huge! To conclude, WE have fun and YOU learn. It's a win-win!

Carl gave my daughter drum lessons over the course of a few years and I can honestly say after every lesson she had she had something good to say. Carl is a very knowledgeable, patient and encouraging instructor and watching my daughter's skill level increase because of his instruction was great. I highly recommend Carl as an instructor.

Carl is a wonderful instructor! He was able to help our very shy daughter progress from basic drums to more advanced drums, culminating in performance ready songs. She always enjoyed his instruction and has positive feedback on her time with Carl.

Professional musician
Apr 1975 - Present

Various bands

I have been fortunate to play with a number of original bands playing for crowds with as many as 30,000 people. I've opened for a large number of national acts at some amazing venues including the Kennedy Center Concert Hall. I bring all my experiences to my teaching and that allows me to approach lessons from the performance angle and how that ties into a more rounded learning experience.
