What do you love about your job?

Sharing drumming history, the American drumming story, the rock history, the jazz history and the human connection with this ancient form of communication is incredibly rewarding. Students feel an instant connection to controlling the noise created from their efforts and the study of controlled noise making helps the brain, body and spirit.

What or who inspired you to start your own business?

My first drum teacher started me on the path of helping others unlock the drumming within each person. His passion for jazz, discipline, education and helping others discover the joy of drumming has been with me since my first private lesson in 1980.

Describe your most memorable project.

One student was wounded in Afghanistan protecting a general in a war-torn province. He was severely injured, and his life was changed forever defending our country. He has not slowed down; he went mountain climbing, skydiving, drumming and living life to the fullest. It has been an honor to tutor him through learning how to play drums again.
