I've been an educator for over 25 years. I have also toured and recorded with trendsetters in the music industry such as Herbie Hancock, Marcus Miller, Wayne Shorter, Steve Coleman, Meshell Ndegeocello, Dapp Theory, Garaj Mahal, Shawn Lane and others . My credits are listed on Wikipedia and I also host my online lessons website thericklessons.com. I have conducted workshops at Berklee College of Music, USD, USC, Oberlin Conservatory, Kimmel Center, Univ of Chicago, Cal Arts, and others. I educate beginners, intermediate, and professional drummers of all ages. You can check out my videos on YouTube!

While learning, have fun and protect your passion for the instrument.
Why do I want to learn the instrument? What music should I listen to? Where do I go for inspiration? Where do I see myself 5 years from now?
