Drum Set, Percussion
I began playing drums at an early age and simply never stopped. I have explored a wide variety of music including rock, jazz, blues, Motown, funk, latin, country etc. and have found aspects in all that I thoroughly enjoy. I have studied, performed, and taught music for nearly thirty years and spent the better part of the last decade touring the U.S. and Europe.
It has been my experience that every student is unique, not only in their abilities but in what they desire to accomplish. I feel it's the job of the instructor to help the student uncover and identify these abilities and motives in order to help set the stage for a successful and gratifying experience.
Developing a great rapport with students while encouraging them can be a very beautiful road and has long been my mission as a teacher. We're all in this together and having people with experience and hopefully a touch of wisdom to help light the path as we go. That is, in my opinion, one of life's greatest gifts.
