Teaching since:
August 2013

I have been playing drums since I was 9 years old and have been teaching for 5 years. I currently play in a professional band in the bay area called Constructs. I specialize in various genres, including those with double kick, and odd time signatures. I make sure that every one of my students understand and play with proper technique and dynamics to perform like the professionals. I teach how to read music, play various types of rhythms, play to a metronome, and play along to any of your favorite songs. I will often times play another instrument with my students to give them an understanding of what it is like to play in a band setting. I also offer group lessons where multiple students learn to play different instruments together to make music.

He's an experienced drummer and a good teacher. It helps that we have similar tastes in music.
