I am an Athens, GA based jazz drummer, percussionist, composer and multi-instrumentalist with a practice that centers on live performance in settings both formal and casual. My teaching approach focuses on building up good fundamental drumming technique in a way that is fun and approachable for musicians of all skill ranges.

My online lessons will be dealing primarily with good fundamental snare drum technique, rudiments, reading exercises, and listening. I always encourage input from students or parents regarding specific goals or ideas in terms of tailoring a more customized lesson plan. In short, tell me what you want to do and I will help you achieve your goals!

Throughout my music career I have studied with great teachers like Neal Smith, Bob Gulotti, Dave Zygmunt, John Piefer and Greg Strohman. I currently hold a BA in East Asian Studies from Dickinson College and an MM in Jazz and Contemporary Music from the Longy School of Music.
