BEGINNERS can expect to understand reading basic rhythm, strokes & rudiments. I promise that beginners will also be playing variations of a rock beat within our first few lessons. INTERMEDIATE/ADVANCED students can expect to see new applications of real life tools for the player looking to gig or improve their performance.

I've taught countless students of all ages and levels. I teach in a curriculum based program unlike any other that I've seen in books, or DVD’s combining technique, music theory, groove essentials, fill study, and unique exercises, games, and patterns. All combining to create fundamentally sound musical drummers who can play any genre of music with groove & chops! I've played and been around drumming my entire life. I learned how to play and teach from one of the best. It is a gift that I am very passionate about and I never take lightly.

Students will be provided with all the necessary tools to fully understand musical concepts and have the ability to play for recreation or at a professional level.

For drum students: we will start by evaluating your current level of ability and ...
All of my percussionists in my bands had to play all of the percussion instruments available to me, not just beating on a drum. A good and talented percussionist is hard to find. All my students learn many complicated rhythms as well as techniques.
