About this pro

I've been teaching drums and percussion since 2004, and received a Bachelor's degree and Master's degree in music performance. 

I've taught private lessons, and groups, of all ages and skill levels. Previous students have found my individually sculpted lessons to be effective, all while maintaining a great sense of fun! 

Remember, we PLAY music, we don't WORK music. If you're not having fun you're doing it wrong!

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

The first lesson is always more of a conversation/interview process. I always like to know who is going to be learning, who they are, and what exactly they'd like to get out of lessons. 

Sometimes they don't know, and that's okay! It just means we'll have to try different things until something sticks. 

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

Bachelor of Arts - Rollins College - Music Performance

Master of Music - University of Florida - Music Performance

I've played in just about every group and ensemble a percussionist will fit into (and some that don't!), as well as been a featured soloist in many venues. 

I've toured with drum and bugle corps, indoor drumlines, steel bands, rock bands, musical theater groups, and I haven't stopped yet!

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

$30/hhr, $60/hr if I'm going to your home.

Other options are available, however, so feel free to ask! My availability is different during different days of the week. 

How did you get started teaching?

I started my last year of high school. I was given an opportunity for student leadership, and the following year I was invited to teach for that high school. I've since gone on to teach all ages and skills, from as young as 5 to as old as 65, in all avenues, from private instruction to collegiate level classes. 

What types of students have you worked with?

I've worked with so many! From special needs, to gifted students, to working adult professionals. 

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Have a conversation with them over the phone, if you can. You can usually tell if the personality is going to match, and that's the absolute foundation for learning. 

If you don't get along with (or at least respect) your teacher, you're not going to learn much! 

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

"What do I like, and what would I like to do?"
