Looking for drum lessons?  There are a variety of options out there, but here are a few reasons why the lessons I teach stand out from the rest:
  • Custom Tailored Lessons
    • For the most part I write my own material. This allows me to tailor the lessons to the needs of each student.

  • Advantages of Technology
    • All of my lessons are on my server, and Samsung Tab S device, which allows me to quickly access any lesson with ease.
    • I use an lcd monitor in conjunction with my Tab S instead of a music stand.  This allows me to switch between lessons, youtube videos, and other helpful drumming apps. 
    • I have the capability of recording slow motion and then viewing the video within seconds. This helps me point out technique flaws that are otherwise difficult to see.
    • I print the students lessons wirelessly with a laser printer, so there is less time wasted and more time available to spend actually playing.
  • Three Drumsets
    • The Practice Pad Set is where 90% of the lessons take place.  I built it myself, and it is adjustable, allowing comfortable lessons for children through adults.  It also makes the student work harder, which helps to develop hand and finger strength.  And it's quiet!  I can talk while we are playing to help guide the student when necessary.
    • The Pearl Export Select Series Set is used when I need to see how a student performs on an actual drumset, or when I need to demonstrate something.
    • The Roland TD-11kv Electronic Set is used for a variety of things.  Check out the specs here!

  • Friendly and Flexible
    • My lessons are geared towards having fun while learning proper drumming techniques along the way.  I want students to enjoy their instrument rather than seeing it as a chore.
