Sam has been a wonderful teacher and mentor to my son over the last 2 years. The lesson goes beyond just music. Sam's ability to relate to children and his love for his craft excites engages whomever he teaches. He instills confidence and gentle guidance while engaging in lessons that allow kids to build upon their music week to week. I would highly recommend Sam for his professionalism, talent and his values.Dec 4, 2014
Sam is great! He's not only a great drummer, he's a great teacher. My 13 year old son is learning fast, and is into it!Nov 4, 2014
Sam teaches drums to students within our after-school program and they absolutely love their experience with him! He really knows how to connect with children to help understand the skills needed to play. Highly recommend Sam working teaching lessons to children!Nov 3, 2014
I could not have chosen a better drum teacher for my son. Sam's style of teaching is exactly what will encourage and influence musicians of the future. It is not a "Here's your book, let's go over this piece and then practice it 30 minutes a day for the next week" kind of lesson. Sam challenges his students, wants to know what they have been listening to and want to try to play, then it's using that and breaking things down into rudiments from there, all while keeping it fun and just jamming.Sep 7, 2014

Sam is a great teacher. His laid back style makes the student feel comfortable. Our son has been with him for four years and is now 8yrs old. Sam has given him a great foundation. We are lucky we found him.Sep 7, 2014
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I still study privately when I can with various drum teachers and friends in the Berklee community. I also perform on the instrument at least 200 times a year, which keeps me on the cutting edge!
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I love music. I would incessantly tap rhythms as a child, and the moment I sat down and played a groove with a bass player, and felt the two of us become one within the music, I knew it was my destiny to do this forever.
- What types of customers have you worked with?Most commonly I teach private drum set instruction.
