I've taught drums for 15 years and I've play professionally for 20 years all over the southwest and west coast. I studied Jazz drumming at ASU in Tempe, AZ. I have a passion for teaching music and helping people make it a positive part of their lives. Right now I'm teaching at all Trade Up Music locations as well as Hum Strum Drum in Portland, OR.

I tailor lessons to each students needs. My goal is to strike the balance between teaching the craft of drumming while also making each lesson fun!
I received musical education since I was a child in middle and high school as well as private instruction. I received the Jazz bird scholarship at ASU in Tempe, AZ where I studied jazz drumming. I've done extensive giging and touring throughout the U.S.

I was asked to teach a middle school drum class when I was 18 years old. I started teaching private lessons at Montys Music in Scottsdale, AZ while I was studying in college.
I just love to be a part of Portlands vibrant music scene. I feel very honored to be able to do so.
Make sure they have a good balance of fun and knowledge
