All new students need is a folder and some drumsticks. We will get started right away on some fun drumming exercises and tunes!
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I've played in many working bands, church bands, jazz groups, even a metal band! I think that experience playing gigs out is very important to a drum instructor. I've also studied under Byron Hedgepeth and Lynn Glassock, who are amazing teachers.

I started teaching drums in the early 2000's when I lived in Los Angeles. I work well with young people, and love drumming and teaching. It's a natural fit!

Come check out the music school and the Rock Academy! There is a cool atmosphere of learning among talented students. It is a great place to network to meet other musicians.

What type of music do you like? Thats huge. I'm a fan of rock and all styles similar. It's inportant for a teacher and a student to enjoy similar sounds.
