I have over 25 years experience in drum-set playing in rock, metal, jazz, praise team, 70's, and punk-electric-avant guarde genres; additionally, I have 10 years teaching experience.
I have studied music formally in 4 different universities including the University of North Texas and can simplify the complexities of learning drums; I can break it down so it is easy to understand.
I am here to help you fall in love with drums!!! Look forward to helping you learn.
*** Lesson Details ***
I am a laid back teacher in that I want to find out what most interests the student first, and then to emphasize that. Patience is important for self-efficacy and I never want to scare away a student. Depending on the experience level of the student I use many books: A New Breed, Stick Control, and Syncopation are some of my favorite.
*** Travel Equipment ***
Drum pad or set.
*** Specialties ***
I specialize in rock drumming encapsulating alternative, pop, and sub-pop genres.
