About this pro

I have been teaching drums all over the Tri State area for 10 years. Most of my students continue studyin with me for years because I cater to each individual's personal goals. I make lessons fun and interactive. I prescribe a balanced practice routine that is not overwhelming or time consuming. I have an ever expanding wealth of information and personal experience playing the drums. I am always learning new things to teach myself to then pass on to my students. I have 2 music degrees. The albums and performances I have done with my band iNFiNiEN have recieved international praise from music critics.
