Lesson Details


Levels Taught:
I am very student focused and driven. I want to help my student realize their full potential with playing drums.
I can introduce my student to a basic understanding of music theory and hard rock/metal drumming is my main focus - however I am versed in other music genres as well, to give my student the most options to work with.
Relaxed, fun, and detail oriented are all words I would use to describe myself.
So, if you are looking for a drum teacher that can cover: rudiments, stick control, basic tempo/time understanding, metronome familiarity, tuning of a kit, drum maintenance, and much more, look no further!

Teaching since:

I understand that learning something new can be very daunting. I know that in particular, because I am still new to teaching! We can both learn together. I want to make it my goal, to help you be a better musician, performer, and most obviously: a better drummer. I care deeply about making sure my students understand what I'm teaching them, and patience is the key to that.
I have self taught myself to play drums for 15 years, and have been performing for 10 years. Please ask me any questions, I'm an open book.
I also attended Sheffield Institute for the Recording Arts and am a certified audio engineer.
My ultimate goal, is to help you reach yours!

So far he had a lot of patience with my son. It was great to see my son actually learning the drums. He was really excited about the lessons! He can't wait to practice and go back next week.
