What is your typical process for working with a new student?

The first thing a new drummer needs to get used to is how the set feels.  Sitting on the throne for the first time, putting their feet on the pedals.  Drumming is a physical/emotional experience and the wrong heights or distances can be extremely detrimental to a young drummers progress

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I've played in bands with various friends and classmates since 2010.  I've studied with professors from both the University of Texas and Berklee College of music.  I've played proffesionally in a band with a group of close friends I met in high school for the past three years.  We've played with acts such as the Mowglis, and Great Good Fine OK, who have over 15 million plays on spotify

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

$40 an hour.  No fuss.  I come to your house, set up my own personal drumset(provided there's enough space, if not I can teach on one drumset).  THEN I start the timer and teach for however long you want, then STOP the timer, we work out payment, and I pack up and leave

How did you get started teaching?

Quite frankly, by growing up alongside budding musicians like myself.  I was looked up to in the music program back in my hometown.  All the youngsters would come into the practice rooms while I was in there alone just to watch me.  I became very used to explaining what I was doing and how I was doing it in a way that was simple enough to understand but not demeaning.

What types of students have you worked with?

I've worked with people who've never touched a drumset before, and people who've been playing for most of their lives, and everyone in between.  I've seen all levels of playing, good and bad.  and I can point out mistakes and give advice on how to correct them

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Be particular.  You may not like my style of teaching, that's OK. When I was first learning I must've gone through nine or ten teachers before I found the right one.   If the teacher doesn't work well with you, or understand the problems you're having, just cancel your lessons with them.

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

What would a first lesson with you be like? 

How strict are you in terms of technique and practice regimine?
