*** Lesson Details ***
I am laid back and enjoy having fun with my students because I believe if you're not having fun you're not doing it right. My students can expect to work hard, be rewarded and truly realize their full potential. You will always be expected to come prepared but can be sure you'll have fun and leave with much more than what you came with.
*** Travel Equipment ***
Students should provide drums, guitar and required texts. I can provide extra sticks and mallets.
*** Specialties ***
Classically trained percussionist; specialize in rock, country, rockabilly and jazz.
