I teach all styles and levels of drumming! Focus on listening, playing along to songs and recordings, groove, time keeping, technique and reading. Some discussion of music theory and history. I tailor my lessons to meet each individual student’s needs and expectations. I encourage students to bring their favorite songs and we usually end up working with those. I also like using songs by The Beatles as they provide a perfect (fun and familiar) platform to learn many different aspects of drumming and musical performance.
I have played and studied drums as a secondary instrument for quiet sometime. I have had some accomplished drum students.
I teach all the basic rudiments and have a strong focus on learning beats by ear. I like to teach my drum students to read and do rolls with a strong concentration on the snare drum.
