Drum Lessons

I don't simply teach drumming, I teach musicianship ...

Because I'm a composer and drummer, my perspective on teaching drums is much broader in scope.   Here are some of the concepts I cover in drum set lessons:

Importance of motion in the creation of sound

Understanding musical styles: jazz, Afro-Cuban, Brazilian, rock and R&B

Musical phrasing in soloing

Rudiments applied to the drum set

Reading rhythm and understanding meter

4-way Coordination

Brush Technique

Modern sticking applied to drumming

Linear concepts in drumming

The role of the drums in music
