Lesson Details

Drum

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
Students will be taught an in-depth comprehensive curriculum covering topics such as hand technique, using many rudiments and many sticking exercises to develop their technique. We will focus on reading skills and rhythmic interpretation (listening), counting out rhythms so that the student can also educate themselves when listening to music or otherwise, and can go beyond specific lessons assignments to educate themselves further, outside of our class.
We will also cover Drum Set coordination and many styles of music associated with it.

Teaching since:
April 1998

Carl grew up in Connecticut in a musical family. He found a great deal of enjoyment starting Drum Lessons in grade school where he noticed that this joy for music and rhythm contributed to a passion-inspired growth accelerating beyond his performance in other subjects. He was inspired by Classic and Progressive Rock artists throughout Junior High and High School, and began to take his growing passion more seriously, taking part in Marching, Symphonic bands, Wind and Jazz Ensembles. Carl made the All-State Orchestra in High School, and performed at an All-New England Orchestra while attending CCSU (Central Connecticut State University)​ and​ while studying Classical Percussion (Snare Drum, M​arimba, Timpani) under the tutelage of Principal Percussionist at the Navy Coast Guard. After two years at CCSU, he transferred to Berklee College of Music where he obtained his BA in Music Performance. While attending Berklee Carl explored Contemporary Drum Set styles within various ensembles and classes, focusing on Jazz, Latin, Funk, Fusion, and World Music, under the apprenticeship of artists such as Kenwood Dennard, Ian Froman, Jon Hazilla, Nancy Zeltsman, Casey Scheuerell.
Carl currently teaches at Needham Public Schools as well as the Winchester Community Music School, and performs in and around Boston and New England in various stylistic musical groups ranging from small Combo Jazz, Big Band, Folk, Funk, Indie Rock, Theatre, etc. Some latest projects include ‘Echo and Drake’ who were ​featured in ‘Paste’ and ‘American Songwriter’ Magazines, ‘Zen Carnival’, Mamadou(.com) to name a few.

Carl’s role as a teacher is to create as much of a positive blend of education with an exciting musical environment, incorporating the latest contemporary music (student and teacher influenced) while also applying a broad scope of traditional styles, techniques, and exercises for developing a well-rounded musical experience and musician, and with the goal of assisting the student in reaching their highest potential and​ to​ become as self-reliant as possible.
