- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
I teach online via Zoom (preferred) & Skype. Through Zoom I am able to provide professional level audio and video, so each student has the best experience possible. I offer $5 off each lesson for students who purchase 4 lessons or more per month. Rates: $65 - 60 mins $50 - 45 mins $35 - 30 mins ** SAVE $5 off each lesson if purchased by the month **
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
I learn about the students interests, what type of music they enjoy, what goals they want to achieve and develop a customized lesson plan based on the needs of the student, their talent and ability.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I began my drumming career back in 1990, when I was 9 years old for my elementary school band. In my formative years, I received private instruction on the drum set from several local instructors. I was also a member of my school concert band, orchestra, jazz band, marching band and actively participated in NYSSMA (New York State School Music Association) for both snare drum and drum set. I joined my first band at the age of 12. I would spend the next 15 years recording and touring with various bands in several genres from Long Island NY. In addition to my formal music education and performance career I have been teaching private drum instruction for over two decades to both main stream students and differently abled/special needs students. I am proud to have studied in the past with Drumming’s Global Ambassador, world-renown Drum Instructor, Dom Famularo. From 2009-2020 I worked for Family Residences and Essential Enterprises, Inc. (FREE) as the Senior Music Specialist at their Performance & Creative Arts Center in Old Bethpage, NY. It was there that I was inspired to put my two lifelong passions of playing the drums/teaching music and working with differently abled students together. This ultimately led to me to creating the FREE Players Drum & Bugle Corps, the World's 1st Differently Abled Drum & Bugle Corps. In 2019 I proudly taught an Education/Performance Clinic at PASIC (Percussive Arts Society International Convention), the largest Drum & Percussion convention in the world!
