Teaching

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
  • Reading
  • 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.
