I love it when a student thanks me years later for teaching them basic drum techniques. It feels great to help someone along their path to achievement and success. That is why I love teaching, to give something to a student that they will carry with them, to give a piece of my knowledge and experience to help them build a foundation of a fulfilling life.
I have earned a TEFL certificate from The TEFL Institute. I have classroom experience teaching English as a second language to college students and native Taiwanese Bushiban students (private school students). I received A's in all my college level English classes.
I have taught beginning drum techniques to children ages 7 to 12. My love for music recently has pushed me to get a certificate in Music Technology at Clackamas Community College.
I also had private lessons in drumming from middle school through two years of college. I started playing drums in 6th grade, playing in the school band all through middle school. In my high school years I jammed a lot with my friends, playing mostly alternative rock. In college, I took private lessons for a year from Guy M., 8 quarters of jazz improvisation, and 2 quarters of symphonic band. Outside of class, I was in a hard rock band and a Ghanaian drum and dance group led by Kpani A.
