I started teaching 17 years ago. What started as a part time job grew into a full time career of teaching and playing. At that time I wrote my own drum lesson book which was distributed all over Florida. As of now I only teach part time and only take on a few students at a time. Some of my old students are now performers and teachers in their own right.
I do get lots of joy watching my students perform live.
Very patient, knowledgeable and encouraging.
There are multiple ways of teaching the same thing. My job as a teacher is to tailor lessons to each student so they progress at a steady pace.
I was classically taught drumming from my old jazz teacher, and later honed my playing and teaching skills through constant practice and performance.
My lessons are not timed. some lessons last a half hour and some last an hour. It all depends on what is needed for that week.
