I am a professional drummer and composer with a bachelor's of music from New York University. I have been playing drums for over 10 years and have a ton of experience playing and writing all kinds of music from Rock, Jazz, Pop, Classical, Electronic and more.
I also studied music theory and composition in college and would love to help with any general or specific music theory questions you might have!
I am here to help you reach your musical goals, whatever they are! I am a friendly, casual guy who will make sure that you will improve and have as much fun as possible.
Very good and awesome teacher
Thanks to Patrick, I finally have a basic understanding of the II-V-I progression. He managed to explain it patiently and effectively. I cant recommend him highly enough. A rare combination of technical mastery and effective communication...
Great teacher with a lot of patience and a very creative way of communicating. The best part was that as a french person, I was to take the lesson in French! Patrick is bilingual.
Great teacher, very knowledgeable and friendly!
I have been studying drums with Patrick for a couple of months now, and he is by far the best music teacher I’ve ever had! When I first began taking lessons I could barely play with both hands, but after a couple of weeks I was able to play along with my favorite songs! Patrick is very nice and patient, but also very knowledgable and has great teaching methods. He not only taught me how to play drums well, but also incorporated some really helpful music theory. I am so happy I found as great a drum teacher as him, and look forward to learning more and more as I continue to study with him. I would highly recommend Patrick to players of all skill levels and backgrounds!Show More
Patrick is great to work with. Very knowledgeable and patient with all levels. I don't have much formal music training and wanted some music theory and composition guidance with some songs I was working on for a class for school. It was great to have someone to help me practice implementing these skills.Show More
Patrick is an incredibly patient and detail oriented teacher! He taught me a lot about music theory (I am a total novice) and was open to all my questions no matter how obvious or rudimentary. Though we only learned about basic stuff I could tell that he had an in depth knowledge of various schools and types of theory. The clarity of his lessons and examples were incredibly helpful and I was able to learn a lot fast. I would highly recommend Patrick to anyone looking to learn about music theory or drum theory.Show More
