I give my students the tools they need for success. I teach them proper technique so they can play as fast or as hard or as soft as they need to with little effort. I teach my students how to read music so they won’t be limited to what they hear. I teach my students consistency with tempo and rhythm so they can hold the cadence for an entire band. I teach my students limb independence so they have the flexibility to play what they need to or what is required of them. I teach my students dynamics which sets them apart from good drummers to become great drummers. I teach my students show off licks so they can impress people and feel good about entertaining their friends. I give my students the tools they need in order to obtain their drumming goals. I take my students to where they want to go. There are no limits.
I’ve been playing the drums for more than 30 years now and I share my knowledge, experience, and love for the drums through teaching. I teach the drums because I want to, not because I have to.
