5 Minute Drum Lessons Videos 

As part of a new section on my website, I'll be uploading quick tutorials on specific songs, techniques, and/or exercises.  Check them out and let me know if there is anything you would like me to address in a video. 

Lesson Studio Up and Running 

Hi Everybody! Its getting pretty close to a year ago that I moved to the Sudbury MA area.  When I moved, I made it my goal to start up my own lesson studio, providing drum lessons to students of all ages and ability levels.  I try to give students the tools and knowledge necessary for them to play the instrument they way they want to, play the songs they love, and sound the best they can.  Whatever style of music they are interested in is fine with me.  I feel that it is important for the student to be travellling their own path with guidance from me, rather than me dictating what they should be doing, what they should be listening to, what their interests should be.  I learn a lot from my students when they bring in music from artists or bands that are not familiar to me.  Relating the music that moves them to skills and techniques they need to acquire to be able to play those songs is great challenge and always a lot of fun for me.  Its a great feeling to see the student grow and see there own happiness and joy when they can play that song they never thought they could.
The studio is growing at full speed now with two full days of students and counting.  I look forward to meeting my next student and seeing where music will take us.
