*** Lesson Details ***
My lessons are laid back and fun. I set short and long term goals for my students. Beginners will learn song form, basic beats, sticking patterns and proper technique as well as a focus on playing the music that is most inspiring to them. As our lessons progress we'll work on reading more advanced music, drum set technique, soloing, playing more difficult songs, music theory and learning about all the great drummers in the world! After a few months you'll be booking yourself gigs!
