Approach to Teaching:

I emphasize doing the basics well: reading, coordination, dynamics, rudiments, and musicianship. If my student is receptive, I want him or her to be a full percussionist. I have students studying rock drum set mainly, but other styles ( Jazz, Blues, and Latin ) are included. Concert percussion ( mallet percussion and timpani ), and hand percussion are also taught. Learning to read music will allow you to continue to educate yourself in any style you might want to study in the future.
