Overview

I have been playing the drums for 13 years and have taught professionally for a respected music studio in Connecticut. I have played in numerous bands and toured the United States, Europe and Central America. The styles I teach are Rock, Jazz, Latin, R&B/Hip-Hop, Funk/Soul, Metal and World Rhythms. I am an active session drummer in the Los Angeles music scene. I enjoy teaching regularly and working with children. I teach drum-set as well as hand percussion instruments (Djembe, Bongos, Darbuka, Congas).

Teaching Philosophy

I've always thought that learning should be fun. I consistently try to bring a creative and laid-back approach to teaching drums. After the first lesson, most students realize that I don't take myself too seriously. Sometimes certain techniques or exercises can be tiresome or even boring. When this occurs, I switch gears and move on to something else. In my opinion, if a student is getting very frustrated it is generally best to relax and try a different exercise or beat. We should always be enjoying ourselves!
