Greetings! I am here to teach drums and chew bubble gum, and I'm all out of gum! I have a unique approach of teaching anywhere from a Communications related field to percussion and strive towards specific lesson plans hand-tailored to each student. Any lesson I teach is meant to be a constructive, hands on experience that is meant to really cement important ideas in whomever I am teaching. I've been told that I'm very out of the box, patient, and funny by parents of those with special needs, and adults who have trouble speaking or have issues with percussive instruments. Whatever your goal is, I do my absolute best to assure you are able to reach it.
