About this pro

Rhythm is universal for all of us to share in someway.   My passion and inspiration comes from cultivating experiences where students feel free to express who they are creatively  through rhythm.

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

I tap into the personal interest of each student, ala music and musical artists they like, hobbies, etc., to help guide them towards expressing their passion and telling the story of who they are through sharing rhythm.  

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

Though I'm not classically trained, I began learning snare drum in the fifth grade, which taught me about reading rhythmic notes and counting measures, and from then on, I taught myself drumset and since then, I've been a traveling professional drummer/workshop facilitator, who's performed, recorded and toured around the country as well as internationally for over 15 years.  

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

I price based upon time, resources used and number of students.  

How did you get started teaching?

When I was playing around New York as a percussionist with a Djembe based percussion ensemble, I met a woman who ran an after school program and offered me my first job working with youth, Teaching them the history of the djembe  and how to express themselves with rhythm.

What types of students have you worked with?

Students of all ages from a few months old to seniors, in schools, hospitals, community centers, etc. 

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I'm currently facilitating a residency at a Jewish day school where we recently had a really nice outdoor performance.
