I am a drummer and musician with over 12 years of experience. My teaching career has recently expanded with the addition of a home recording studio. I am now capable of teaching in a multitude of environments, ranging from the students home or a professionally treated recording studio.
This has impacted my teaching style drastically. I can now educate prospective students on a wide array of subjects, ranging from traditional techniques and perspectives to a more contemporary approach that focuses on studio techniques, showmanship, and the contemporary musicians economy.
I have extensive knowledge in this particular field. I received private instruction from a multitude of great drummers, including John Blackwell, Casey Grillo, Derek Roddy, Bernard Galane, and Jon Carson. Owning a recording studio has educated me on the production side of music as well.
I also have years if experience as a private tutor. I have taught for several local businesses, and am currently a teacher at Alternative Music Lessons, LLC.
I am always excited to share information with others. Do not hesitate to contact me if you are looking for a dedicated teacher. I paid hundreds of dollars an hour to learn from the best teachers in the world, and I'm offering the same information and a dedicated music studio with video capabilities for a fraction of that cost.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
I have been playing drums for over 12 years and have received instruction from many notable players including John Blackwell, Casey Grillo, and Bernard Galane.
I have recorded and contributed to several albums, some of which have been produced in my studio.
My background as a drummer and music producer/ engineer has given me an extensive and comprehensive background of music. I listen and write nearly every genre, have extensive background in music theory, music production, sound engineering, and play several instruments. I have such a broad spectrum of knowledge in this particular field to teach and pass on.
I have studied modern music extensively. My classical music history is lacking, but modern music also has a dynamic and rich story behind every genre, This knowledge has come from a general love and passion for music, and is probably the easiest part of music to communicate. Everyone can relate to genres and can explore their evolution with the right guide.
I own and operate my own recording studio, so music production is a daily part of my life. I am well versed in Pro Tools and will soon be running on Maschine software. I specialize primarily in recording acoustic instruments, but also dabble in electronic music and whatever I can find that's interesting. I learned a lot of this side of music on my own, and I would love to help prospective studio owners and producers avoid the pitfalls of committing to a studio.
