Private lessons on drum-set, concert Snare drum, mallets, & timpani for beginners to advanced students.

Class experience

I tailor the lessons to fit the needs of each learner, no two are the same!
For the past 30 years I've worked as an educator in both private studios, and in school settings.  I was also a front ensemble instructor/arranger for several indoor drum lines, and DCI groups in my local area.  I'm currently teaching at two music studios and working as a performer with local theatre groups, original acts, and cover bands.  I'm new to Outschool, and really looking forward to meeting some of the learners in this new and exciting format.
Homework Offered
Learners are expected to practice the material covered during the lesson. The learners will have specific songs or pdf lessons to work on each week. How much time they dedicate to these lessons is something I discuss with the learners and their parents. As I mentioned previously, everyone has different goals and schedules so there is no right or wrong answer here.
1 - 2 hours per week outside of class

Students with require: Drumsticks, an electronic drum kit with speaker, or an acoustic drum set (snare, bass drum,& Hi-hat cym is enough to start. Good headphones are highly recommended for the lessons. Please contact me with any equipment or tech questions you might have.
Drums are Loud!  Learners with acoustic (not an e-kit) should be using ear protection at all times. Good sound blocking headphones are recommended to make the lessons run smoothly.
I have my own beginning method book that I will provide at no charge for most beginner or intermediate students.  Advanced or percussion students might require a method book depending on the students interests/goals.
