Teaching Philosophy: Every student is an unique individual and lessons are developed to fit each of the students needs on a personalized level.
My lessons are based on 8 important aspects that correlate with each other: Technique, Groove development, Reading, Performance, Ear Training, Improvisation, Play Along, and Independence/Coordination.
I specialize in Drumset(Rock, Jazz, Latin and anything in between), but also teach Percussion(Latin, Orchestral, Marching Band).
