In that time I’ve developed a friendly, supportive and encouraging approach to teaching drums that respects every students individual learning style and musical interests. Learn correct technique, to read sheet music and to count and subdivide. Learn to play your favorite songs and discover the many styles of drumming from around the world.

Teaching & Other Details
The journey of learning drums with me is a combination of imparting my knowledge and experience with the natural curiosities and musical interests of the student; instilling good habits and an effective practice routine to give the students the ability to express themselves musically. My ultimate goal as an educator is to instill life long learning and to give young people a way to express themselves that words alone cannot.
Preferred Teaching Place
At my studio in north east Vancouver
