Drumset Lessons

I offer monthly subscription-based, or one-off lessons tailored to each individual student. Lessons can cover anything from stick control methods, to pro studio techniques.

WHO I AM

I'm an accomplished professional drummer, and university-trained music educator with a wide variety of international touring, and studio recording experiences in many drumming styles including Jazz, Hip Hop, Acid Jazz, Punk, Rock, Blast Beats, Country, Blues, Americana, and Funk, with a dedicated focus on Afro-cuban, Brazilian, African, Reggae, and Ska rhythms.

I deeply value the opportunity to teach music and pass along my musical experience & understanding. Connecting with my students, watching them overcome challenges, and developing the ability to express themselves artistically is the most meaningful thing that can happen for a teacher. That's my goal with every student and at every lesson. Music is my life-long passion. I love learning, and understand that cultivating the creative and artistic sensibilities involved in mastering an instrument can be an invaluable experience that affects all aspects of a student's life.
