I'm eager to share over 20 years of drumming experience with students of all ages. Learning an instrument is a fun, fulfilling challenge, and I ground my instruction in solid fundamentals without ever losing sight of the joy that comes from hitting things with sticks.

Each student can expect to learn, grow, and improve in a manner tailored to his or her ability level and unique approach to the instrument. I supplement my own experience with the expertise I gained as a Drum Performance student at the world-renowned Musician's Institute and my ongoing studies with master drum educator Bruce Becker.

  • Learn or improve hand and foot technique, and refine body mechanics -- eliminate or prevent bad habits.

  • Become musically literate. Learn to count, subdivide, read, and chart music.

  • Discover new grooves, fills, and chops. Challenge your independence, and apply polyrhythms.

  • Master technology: music apps, click tracks, sampling, and programming.

Comfortable with almost any style!

Learn the music YOU enjoy.

Beginners and kids are welcome!

I have extensive experience working with young drummers.

UPDATE 9-15-20: All lessons on Zoom until further notice!
