Hello! Thank you for stopping by. I have been playing drums since the age of 7 (36 years). I started in the school bands and marching band, took private lessons for a time and then began joining my own bands. I started professionally by sitting in with my Father's jazz quartet, and then joining other bands, playing different styles of music - rock, jazz, heavy metal, folk rock, blues and country. These included both cover and original bands. I am still active in several bands. In addition to drumset, I play marching snare, tympani, tabla, doumbek and conga.
My teaching style is one of patient mentoring, with attention to detail and accuracy. We begin with the 40 Rudiments of the Percussive Arts Society, and then we go to the appropriate area of study, depending on the student's needs, desires and equipment.
I have been teaching for sixteen years, privately and at an instructional studio. If interested, please contact me through WyzAnt.
I have been teaching ESL since 2008. I use Skype/webcam and all of my students have been in Korea. I can teach in person as well.
Each lesson begins with conversational English; I then move to exercises and dictation, and work with synonyms, homonyms, antonyms, etc.
I look forward to meeting your instructional needs.
