Drums & Percussion

"I hear what you're saying. "Why am I doing all of these exercises?"  Or " What is the point of doing all of this? Where is it going to get me?" My presentation to my students, is never giving them ostentatious exercises that seem near impossible. Neither has it been to bore them either, my goal is to find out what you are trying to achieve and we get there step by step in manageable doses."

I don't remember a time I didn't want to play drums. Many things came and left my life, but the drums were always there for me. 
The feeling I got, and still get, when playing music, puts my heart and intellect beyond a place for me to even understand.
I think that love is infectious and I want to share it.

I can teach you how to read music, sticking patterns, rudiments, and even your favorite songs and beats 
We can also go from every subject from top to bottom together.
I enjoy watching my students push through challenges and become a better drummer for their efforts.



Currently I tour in a professional Rock band called QUOR.
We have toured the whole country and internationally on a number of occasions.

I have been in nominated as one of Active Rock's top 20 drummers in Rock Wired Magazine (March. 2016)
