I have been teaching privately for the past 15 years in the Bay Area. My teaching experience also includes:
- Currently a drum instructor at Lick Wilmerding High School
- Teaching drum set and percussion for 3 years at the Marin Country Day School in Corte Madera.
- Workshops for Middle School, High School, and College Students.
- Faculty at Sonoma Teen Jazz Camp
- Elementary school music instruction.
Areas of Instruction
- Stick and foot technique
- Variety of popular (and unpopular!) styles
- Rudiments and how to apply them to the drum set
My Teaching Objectives
- To treat each student as an individual. People learn in different ways and at different rates.
- To give beginners a good foundation to work from.
- To help intermediate and more advanced students reach their individual goals.
