Personal Statement

I will cusomize your lessons to take you as far as you want to go. I will spend some time focusing on technique. This may seem tedious at first but the rewards are well worth the hard work. Improving technique leads to effortless execution and smoother, tighter feel, increased dynamic range and the ability to express ideas without fighting against yourself. You will find yourself moving around the kit in ways you never thought possible. Music appreciation and listening will be covered to develop your ear and highlight the role of the drums in various musical styles. Rudiments will be covered to help build vocabulary and develop creativity of fills and grooves. Rhythm theory will be covered to help you understand metric subdivions and odd time signatures, and to develop unique phrases.
