Each lesson is designed for the specific needs of the student. Most importantly, I make the lessons fun because playing the drums is fun!!

Some examples of issues discussed are:

• All styles and levels. From Rock to Jazz and everything in between.

 • Successfully prepare drum students for prestigous performing arts programs such as The Laguardia School of the Arts.
• Coordination and independence studies
• Ride Cymbal function, articulation and exercises
• Brush playing patterns and styles
• Playing Grooves across different genres of music.
• Developing solo ideas
• Touch, feel, and sound
• Finding your own voice on the instrument
• and much more...

I am also available for drum clinics.
