About this pro

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. I normally teach at Revival Drum Shop and Trade Up Music in Portland, OR. Right now I'm teaching safely and remotely from my home studio using multiple camera angles and pro sound to bring a fun and engaging lesson from the comfort of your own home!

You can check out what I do at my website, Facebook and Instagram pages. I really look forward to working with you!
