Private Drum Teacher

Having performed jazz, funk, rock, pop, and blues, among other genres, I use the fluidity between these inform each of my lessons. Whether a student is a beginner looking to play their favorite song on the radio, an intermediate looking for some rhythm theory to give them more options in their playing, or an advanced player looking for improvisatory techniques, I tailor each session to the desires of each student and their learning style.

I have been teaching drumset for over 15 years. My lessons focus on applying technique and reading, with snare reading exercises and learning popular songs. Lessons will adjust according to the student's level, pace, and goals.

My goal for my students is to have an understanding on how to use their instrument, develop versatility, discover who they are as a musician, become independent learners, while having fun along the way!

Private Drum Teacher

My drum lessons will be catered to creating a well rounded musician whether they decide to pursue learning drums for fun or if they decide to pursue a career as a musician. My real world experience lends itself to teaching more than just a rote set of techniques. I studied privately and then attended Berklee School Of Music for a year before embarking further on my professional career. I've been playing and studying since the age of 10 and have years of experience playing professionally. I've been on a major label and toured with Powerman 5000, and have been a performing drummer in the Blue Man Group show in Las Vegas for over 20 years.

Stressing reading, rudiments and proper technique will be balanced by learning to play beats, fills, songs and understanding the role of the drummer in a given band or musical situation.

I prefer the lessons to be driven by the students interests so I'm open to creating lesson plans around what they want to learn in order to become the player they ...

Not only is Ray an absolute beast of a musician, he is a wonderful teacher. As many people may know, just because one is a good musician it doesn't necessarily mean you also know how to be an effective teacher. Ray is the best of both worlds! I have improved leagues since I started playing with him some months ago. I COULD NOT recommend his as a teacher enough."
