I hold a Bachelor's Degree in Music Performance, and I am currently in classes towards my Masters of Music Education. With over 10 years of private teaching under my belt, I'm prepared to teach students of all kinds and ages. At my studio I have 2 drum sets set up for teacher and student, headphones for play along, a library of books and music, and recording capabilities. I have an electric bass that I like to use to play along with students to give them the feel of playing with another non-drummer musician. Students can learn their favorite music, or get help with music for school or other ensembles they're a part of. I absolutely do NOT favor one style over the other. I simply teach music and approach it all with the same level of passion. Rock, jazz, Funk, Afro-Cuban, rudimental snare, metal... it's all good with me. Some previous students have gone on to pass college auditions and study music. ALL previous students have had a great time learning music in a fun environment with a caring, passionate, and knowledgeable teacher. *** Studio Equipment *** 2 drumsets for student and teacher Pro Tools recording on 2013 mac computer Infinite music library with Spotify Library of books and drum DVDs Practice pad station with 2 pads and mirrors Video Recording for home reference Field drum for rudimental studies Concert drum for orchestral studies Electric bass Drum machine for playalong *** Travel Equipment *** I expect my students to have a drumset and everything they need to practice. eg drums, sticks, pad, music etc. *** Specialties *** Technique - Moeller, Free Stroke, hands and feet Jazz drums Rock drums Rudimental Snare Drumming Recording Techniques Latin drumset applications Hand drums Style and Analysis of favorite drummers Drum Tuning Independence Coordination Chart Reading and Interpretation Theater drumming

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.
