Performance Experience: Plays in multiple bands such as Purely Green, Westlake, and Bunktown Falls. Have been in active bands performing all over long island including 3 consectutive years playing Montauk Music Festival. Playing live in bands since 2016.
Teaching Experience: Teaching Drums since 2017 originally at Oceanside Music and contiinuted to teach here at Music & Arts Oceanside. I use my live band experience in our lessons to teach about playing live as well as playing confident and having a fun time while doing it.
Teaching Philosophy: I love using my knowledge of live performance and my playing skills to my advantage. I play in 3 bands which play all over Long Island. Playing music has been my passion since I could walk/Talk. I love listening to jam bands like The Grateful Dead, Phish, and tons of other awesome bands! I've been playing in live bands since I was 16 yearsold, and have been teaching since I was 17 yearsold starting. Music in my eyes is the best way to express yourself when going through good or bad times.
