Teaching since:

I've been a working musician, recording artist, and teacher in the Los Angeles area for over 10 years now. I've had the opportunity to study with many great educators like Maury Baker (Janis Joplin, Jimmy Hendrix, Frank Zappa) and Kei Akagi (Miles Davis, Stanley Turrentine, Al Di Meola). I received my Bachelor's degree from the University of California Irvine in music (specifically in jazz drum set performance). I'm also well versed in marching percussion and can teach beginner to advanced levels if necessary. No matter what level, music should be fun. When you establish goals and make progress, music can be the most rewarding thing in your life.

Drum · In studio

I took lessons with Jack when I moved to the area. I fully and wholeheartedly recommend Jack. He really is an amazing teacher! He used his expertise to make music understandable to me and adapted his explanations to my learning style.

He prepared the class according to my interests and made the class totally enjoyable. He is absolutely patient. I have no musical background and English is not my first language, so teaching someone like myself if a challenge. But Jack not only increased my drumming knowledge but also my passion for playing drums. Thank you Jack!

Unfortunately, I moved again, otherwise I would still be playing drums with him.
