My ambition as a drum instructor is to make each lesson fun and effective. I base my lessons around the rate at which each student learns and grows as a musician. I work using both strengths and weaknesses to find out what is needed to help each individual learn efficiently. Whether it’s learning to play with a band, developing a stronger understanding of rhythm and music theory, or simply learning the basics to play your favorite songs, I can “meet” you where you are as a drummer and provide you with the skills and techniques needed to achieve your goals.

I believe that a solid understanding of basic technique and theory can not only enhance your playing, but also improve the way you learn and translate musically. I like to spend a few minutes of each lesson working on some of these skills.


Topics include:

– Stick Technique

– Basic Theory

– Different styles and grooves

– Reading

– Rudimental drumming

– Soloing

– Improvisation


I am happy to accommodate all ages and levels of musicians. I teach out of my private studio in Victor, ID, or over your preferred web chatting platform. Please contact me for availability and prices.
