I do not follow a strict regime, rather I mix working out of books and also listening to songs and playing along. I like to create my lesson plan and work load for each student individual pace. I am happy to share many of the helpful tips I've learned in my 25+ year professional music career. I love following my passion and learning more each day. Drumming has allowed me to collaborate with many great musicians and I'm constantly meeting new friends. I enjoy sharing knowledge and helping others in any way I can
Vivien C. Jeremy has been my personal instructor for the last few years and has helped me grow tremendously as a drummer. He was the first instructor I had who emphasized both rudiments/book learning AND learning by instinct/feel. He has also made his personal time available outside lessons to review videos of my performances and provide feedback. He has been both compassionate and demanding, and I recommend him highly to anyone who is serious about being a great drummer.
