Lessons

I offer drumset and percussion lessons at my home studio in New Hampton to students of all ages. Subjects can include but are not limited to  Jazz, funk, African, Afro Cuban, Rock, Concert Band, Hand Percussion, and Marching Band. I have 26 years of music related experience, 16 years of which have been teaching lessons and playing professionally.

As an instructor, I approach the lesson on an individualized basis.  I tailor the curriculum to the student’s ability and his/her particular interests.  By utilizing musical appreciation, technical exercises, new musical concepts and a fun learning environment, the student will become a well rounded musician.  With many years of professional experience, I feel that I have developed a teaching style that quickly recognizes what a student needs to develop their full musical potential. 

I teach privately at the New Hampton School, the Manchester Community Music School, Holderness School, Interlakes High School Marching Band and Concert Band, Sant Bani School and at my home studio in New Hampton.  I also teach summer percussion workshops at various schools as well as Extended Learning Opportunities for children at risk.  Students vary in age as well as ability.  I teach from very beginner to advanced students. Many have won all-state awards and others have gone on to have successful careers.
