About this pro

In addition to providing several approaches while teaching, I am also active an active performer, making me an excellent connection if you're intested in expanding your music practices into the live world.

In addition to being a music tutor, I am a:

Drumline Instructor

Performing musician

Producer & Multi intrumentalist

Composer

I enjoy explaining concepts of technique, theory, and sound at all levels.

I love the process of education. It changed everything for me in my musical journey. At a young age I learned to listen to others and have conversations about things I didnt know much about, but had always wanted to know about.

Life long skills! Learning music is more than the information given. its the way the information is explained, processed, and implemented. The educational process can trasfer into other areas of your everyday life to help you become a more open and willing person to understanding things you once did not.
