Although performing on stage was the first musical passion of mine, music education has evolved into a very defining avenue of my career. While honing my abilities as a private drum instructor over the last decade, I have learned that each musician and each student has a different personality and different musical goals. I enjoy teaching interested students of all all ages, from those just beginning to the advanced drummers who wish to reach the next level. My personal goals as a teacher emphasize; good technique, strong understanding of different tempos and styles, apt reading skills, and using the drums as a vehicle for expressing musicality. Additionally, I truly value each individual and your aspirations as a musician!
I conveniently teach in studios across the the triangle including Durham, Carrboro, and Cary. In some instances I can arrange home visits. Lessons are scheduled as a weekly meeting and can last 30 minutes, 45 minutes, or 60 minutes depending on the student. Rates differ based on location and length of our meetings. I am happy to provide further information upon request.
