Hello! I'm a drummer and drum teacher based in San Francisco.
I have 30+ years playing drums in and 15 years teaching experience under my belt and although my focus has been the drum set the past 25 years, my foundation was in orchestral percussion and the rudiment heavy discipline of marching band.
About me: After moving to San Francisco in the fall of 1998, I quickly became part of a vibrant and diverse music community here and toured and recording with artists such as Citay, Crime In Choir, Tussle, Daevid Allen(of Gong), Carletta Sue Kay, Damo Suzuki(of CAN) and 3 Leafs to name a few. Since 2002 I have taught drum lessons privately, and for institutions such as The Paul Green School of Rock, Vibo Music, Alma Music Academy, Live Oak elementary school, Children's Day elementary school and The San Francisco Project and continue to perform around the Bay Area and beyond. I received the honor of Best Drummer from the SF Weekly in 2009.
As a teacher, I try to cater to the individual needs of each student while focusing and good technique and the fun, expressive qualities of the drums. Thanks for your consideration!
