I've played drums over 27 years and taught lessons over 17 of those years. I have a background in Drumset solos, marching snare, rock bands and Troopers drum corps. Also playing in jazz, concert and orchestra bands gave me opportunity to perform and compete many places including P.A.S., scoring a 1 @ state and G.C. drum off. I took private lessons for a few years before leaving to college in Hollywood, CA, attending M.I.(Musicians Institute). With one of my instructors becoming the current drummer for Korn, "Ray Luzier". I now teach mostly out of my own books on how to read music, coordination, grooves, soloing and playing with bands. I have 1-2 recitals each year and prefer in-person lessons. If you are not local, I offer online lessons too. Accepting beginner to advanced drummers, come check it out.
Teaching private drumset lessons to students of all ages and skill levels. Each individual is different and needs to be taught in the best way for them to progress quickly. I wrote my own books to break down beats, patterns, rhythms, songs and solos for learning step by step material. I offer every genre of music with coordination and reading notes. I enjoy my job.
Teaching a drumline of 8 - 16 drummers how to play snare, tenors, bass, and pit instruments. Marching style and formations were included. Every morning and most afternoons we had practice for 4+ hours average daily. The Drumlines took 1st place many years in a row during my instruction.
