I grew up in Quebec City Canada, where I only spoke French during those growing years. From a very young age, I was always attracted to music and particularly playing drums. My mom has told me that before I could even walk, I was already banging away on whatever I could put my hands on. I would sit down with pots, pans, and spoons and bang away. My parents bought my first “real” drum kit when I was about five years old. It was a Mickey Mouse drum set that they ordered from the Sears catalog. I was ecstatic. Unfortunately, because of the poor quality of the drum, this particular kit only lasted a couple months, but it was on that very drum kit that I gave my first live performance. The concert took place in the basement of my house. This memorable concert included one song, a French ...

My passion for music has led me clear across the country, from Boston to the San Francisco Bay Area. I have played guitar for 17 years, in various bands of many different genres, and have attended music schools on both coasts to fortify my musical knowledge. I attended Berklee College of Music in Boston and then graduated from Sonoma State University in Rohnert Park. My specialties are in rock and metal guitar, and also in composition and music theory. *** Lesson Details *** My teaching style is centered around the individual learning styles of the student, rather than the imposition of an impersonal broad curriculum.

Teaching drums would be customized per student. Goals depend on how fast the student moves and practices. I will start off teaching just a little bit of snare drum from books and gradually ad everything in. Rock will be the first style we will start off with and may work our ways towards jazz, Latin, shuffle, blues, and so on. The key concepts will be to develop syncopation and rhythm.
