In addition to earning a Bachelor of Music degree with Magna Cum Laude distinction from Arizona State University and having received The Jazzbird Foundation Scholarship Award, my pragmatic approach to learning goes beyond the confines of academia to include 15 years of personal, real-world playing experience. My home teaching studio is ideal, for it provides all the resources of a traditional learning environment. You will enjoy the following: 1. A university level white board with stave lines for easy illustration of lesson material; 2. Two complete drum sets mirroring one another to better accommodate the visual learner; 3. Access to a vast personal library of method books spanning 60 years of publication, covering all styles. You will learn proper hand-technique to develop stick control, power, speed, and dynamics in your drumming. I'll teach you Moeller and Gladstone and effective, yet engaging, ways to apply rudimental studies around the entire kit, making your investment, time and energy worthwhile. If after your first month of lessons you see no measurable difference in your playing or technique, I will gladly refund all of your hard-earned money--guaranteed! *** Studio Equipment *** Studio Room: Two drum sets, library of music books, white board, piano and keyboard; parents may sit in on lesson. *** Travel Equipment *** I provide learning aides (books, hand-outs, recordings) to be used during the session, and an IPod and dual headphones for teacher-student interaction. All students will be required to own a set of sticks, brushes, a practice pad, and purchase up to 3 books at less than $20 per, which will be utilized for the duration of not only the lesson series, but likely for the remainder of the musician's lifetime. *** Specialties *** Proper technique development is a critical component of study for any student who is serious about measurable progress. As such, my teaching method involves first assessing a student's natural approach to the instrument, then employing textbook methodologies to improve technique. With proper technique, the student will excel more quickly and with less effort to achieve gratifying results. Styles of specialty include jazz, blues, rock, funk, Latin, and modern popular music.

Noodle says

Takelessons started as a platform to for music teachers, and is still strongest on that front. It provides tutors with organizational software designed to help track lessons, and so probably attracts more tech-friendly, highly organized tutors. No vetting or training is provided for tutors, so we highly recommend that you use their ratings and reviews when selecting a tutor.

TakeLessons says

Success in learning often depends on finding the right teacher; someone that not only has expertise in the subject, but also knows how to inspire. The teaching style that works for one student may not work for another. As a parent or student, how do you find the right match? As a teacher, how do you find new students that fit your style? TakeLessons bridges this gap.
