Hello, I have been teaching drum set and hand percussion lessons for over 25 years. I use practical and user friendly methods aimed at getting the best results. My lessons are tailored specifically to each students needs.

Since 2008, I have been teaching online. I have taught students from various states in the U.S., central Europe and beyond. On average I teach 16-20 lessons a week.

Besides instruction on drum set and hand percussion, I am also active in recording work on a global scale. I have film and TV credits in the hundreds. My original compositions can be heard on everything from Animal Planet to Yukon Men. In my opinion the best teachers are the ones who actually regularly play the instruments they teach.

I am an educated musician with tenures at Berklee College of Music and the LA Music Academy. I have studied under some of the top teacher/players in the world.
