Lesson Details


Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate
Helping the student fall in love with the music they create is of the utmost importance to me. My main goal is to help bring the student to a greater appreciation and understanding of music. I have over 10 years worth of experience playing drum set and percussion. My styles of performance over the past several years have been jazz, country, rock, soul, funk, and christian contemporary music. Students will be exposed to comprehensive music theory tailored to their individual needs. Whatever style the student wants to learn I will be able to help them on their journey to becoming a well-rounded musician.

Teaching since:

Music has been the love of my life for as long as I can remember. I believe it has the power to move people. I've been playing drums and percussion for 10 years and have received training from a number of professionals, such as Clyde Connor and Scott Wilson at the University of Florida, where I also studied Music Education. During my tenure at UF, I was the drummer for the Big Band, Jazz combo, and the symphonic band.

Currently, I am a drummer, percussionist, guitarist, pianist, and vocalist. I am more than willing and able to teach students on any of these instruments regardless of your level of experience. For several years I played in many venues around the North Central Florida area with various bands whose genres included jazz, funk, country, rock, and soul. I have also had many years of experience playing for contemporary Christian music services.

I am very friendly and flexible to the needs of the student, while making music fun and educational.

Leading worship from the drum set was my responsibility while performing with this church. I was the drummer on call at first to cover for those that needed substitutes, until quickly becoming a highly sought drummer for not only this organization but many like it in Alachua county.
