Lesson Details

Drum

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
For my beginners, we play the full drum set right away, at the first lesson. It is not necessary to own a drum set for about 3-4 months. I have a method in place which includes learning beats, reading, speed exercises, music analysis, and playing along with favorite songs. For my advanced and intermediate students, we work on the material given to me by such greats as Mike Mangini and Gary Chaffee while I was at Berklee College Of Music. It is also very easy for me to switch gears and explain material that my students bring to me. Some examples include working on school auditions, learning how to play their favorite songs for talent shows, advice on joining a band etc. I've taught almost 20,000 drum lessons at several music schools, including Berklee. Parents love me because I am strict and we work on their kids' ability to focus and listen (!). Students love me because I push them and treat them like adults. I am a demanding teacher and results are expected, even with my special needs kids. Most of my students see me for years. I'm the best. References are available.

Teaching since:
1992

I have played on national tv, toured the U.S. a few times with signed bands, I endorse various drum and cymbal companies, and my drumming can be heard (and played) in the Guitar Hero and Rock Band video games. I studied at Berklee College Of Music for drum set and at University Of New Hampshire for classical percussion.

I've taught almost 20,000 drum lessons over 25 years to hundreds of students. I've taught at several music schools in LA and Boston, including Berklee College Of Music. Past students have included kids and adults with special needs, professional musicians, and famous actors. My students play gigs, concerts, and teach their own drum students.

For my beginners, we play the full drum set right away although it is not necessary to own drums. For my advanced and intermediate students, I pass on the material given to me while I attended Berklee. It is also easy for my lessons to switch gears so we can on work on material that the students may need for their individual situation (i.e. preparing for school auditions, learning favorite songs for talent shows, etc.). My lessons are demanding, I am strict, and that's why my students are awesome.
