Richard gave my son, who never played drums before lessons. He thought him how to practice correctly for better results. Richard is a great teacher because my son now plays in Jazz band at school. Hire Richard for great results.

Richard taught my son drum lessons while Jake was in college a few years ago in Atlanta, Ga. He gave him a great foundation to build from, teaching him rudiments on the snare and applied it to the drum kit. My son really enjoyed learning from him, he says its because Richard challenged him but always made it fun! Jake continues to play today with a band he formed!
Richard is a true professional, has pro chops and is very personable. He's a great drummer and just a great guy! Highly recommended!!

Great drum teacher. I studied with Richard about a year. I had played before, but Richard helped me build a better drumming foundation and guided me to me play better.
I now am able to play in a cover band and use some of the concepts and techniques that I learned from my lessons with him.
I highly recommend Richard for drum lessons.

My 12 year old son took lessons with Richard for 2 years in Antlanta. He is a very friendly and patient teacher. I was amazed how quickly my son progressed within a short period of time. He is now playing in his first band. Unfortunately we had to move out of state and my son truly misses his lessons with Richard, especially because Richard made it always fun. If you are looking for a drum teacher, who can bring the best out of your child, then Richard is the guy for the job!
