I am a well rounded individual, with a ton of patience looking to provide lessons/ tutor in the following areas.
FILM VIDEO PHOTOGRAPHY
I began my professional training in Film and Media Production at Emerson College and did some post-grad work at the FAMU in the Czech Republic. Since graduating with a BFA, I have gained extensive production experience shooting Documentaries, Features ,Commercials, Music Videos, Viral/Online content, and Experimental films. Studying under both Albert Maysles (Grey Gardens, Gimme Shelter, The Gates) and Paul Cameron (Man on Fire, gone in 60 Seconds, Swordfish, and Collateral) has allowed me to hone a unique aesthetic sensibility, and obtain the technological prowess to accomplish the images I set out to create. I have a strong command of the all latest technologies and work flows, including the various digital formats. I have managed production companies, coordinated employees/crew, managed projects, and have worked directly with top notch talent. I have worked with a variety of personalities (both extremely eccentric and world renowned.
Some of the clients and companies I have worked with: MTV, Red Tree Productions Ford Models, Pitchfork Media, Collegehumor.com, HGTV, Fuse, VH1, NewArt.tv, Tyson Beckford, Apollo Braun, The New York Philharmonic,Blackbird Pictures, Nickelodeon, Crash and Burn Productions
My drumming approach is simple: cultivate the novice's creative energy while emphasizing on the essentials. This is the key to becoming the musician you WANT to be. It is overlooked by almost everyone I have ever encountered, and it eventually catches up to them. As a professional, I strongly recommend focusing on these basic principles in order to take the subsequent steps that will take you to the next level . you wont regret it. I tailor my lessons around the goals, needs, and wants of my students, while imparting my principles. Lessons are always fun and positive, and I always bring inspiration to the table. I like to work with beginner students as they are a blank canvas, however, I will never shun away a student who wants to better themselves as a musician.
17 years drumming experience.
Trained by very prominent instructors and educators
Currently performing and recording with 2 national musical acts.
I have appeared on 5 recordings, covered extensively by press, and have toured extensively with national acts worldwide.
I will teach you the art of drumming from the ground up. A strong foundation is everything!
I am based in BROOKLYN, however, I am accepting students all over NEW YORK CITY - Brooklyn, Queens, and Manhattan ONLY ... sorry Staten island and Bronx students ... unless you would like to meet someplace more neutral.
