All of my lessons are given in my drum studio or online. This allows me to teach my students on real drums, not electronic drums or practice pads. Many of my former students are now touring professional drummers.
The best part of about teaching is guiding my students toward the discovery of their abilities.
Definitely a professional. Our lesson started promptly, and he was very adept at assessing skills and figuring out where to go from there. I highly recommend him for anyone who is looking to get lessons from someone who is not only EXTREMELY skilled but also an excellent teacher as well...it’s hard to find someone who is both!
Usually, we start with a brief phone call or email to find out their background - specifically with regards to taking drum lessons. Then, we schedule an introductory lesson.

I started teaching lessons when I was a Senior in High School.
I have taught all levels of students. From beginners to professional drummers. Some of my former students are now professional drummers touring with major artists.
One of my former students just got an artist endorsement with Zildjian Cymbals. I am very proud of them.
Make sure the teacher can teach you how to read music. Similar to reading words and books, there is a lot of information you can teach yourself if you are given the right tools.
