I have had a passion for drums since the age of 4. Music has been an important part of my life as far back as I can remember!
I am currently accepting new drum students. I teach all my students rudimental technique with snare drum, reading skills through a number of drum books, ear technique with music and mixing in many of the techniques that I personally found useful to improving my own skills.
I have learned a great deal from playing for many years with my own bands. I have worked in a number of local recording studio with my own bands and with other musicians. I have worked with over 500 students through private lessons over the years.
My love for drumming started early in the 4th grade with school band. I played in school band through high school. School band allowed me to learn technique for snare drum and a variety of percussion instruments. It also got me involved in marching band for more rudimental technique. As a young teenager I began to study with several experienced and well respected Drum instructors in the Metro Detroit area. This added additional rudimental technique through snare drum as well as helping to mold my drum set technique.
I my senior year I joined my first band playing locally in the Detroit area clubs. I have continued to play and perform over the years with a number of bands playing all over Michigan, Canada, Ohio and Pennsylvania. I have also spent a lot of time in the recording studios with my bands recording our original music as well as laying down drum and vocal tracks for a number of other Detroit area musicians.
At 19, I started to teach private drum lessons. I have continued to teach over the years with students of all ages. I have also hosted several local Drum Jams recitals featuring many of my drum student.
I take pride in seeing my students grow and develop as solid confident players!
I have taught in a number of local music stores over the years including teaching in my home studio.
Very nice teacher. Fun to learn from her
