the beginning...

i received my first drum set Christmas of 1982 and I've kept them close ever since. The steps I've take along my professional career have prepared me to reach for my dream: To teach people how to play music. 

My mom taught piano which had a bigger impact on me than I realized.  I now know that this dream of mine took root a long time ago and has finally come to the surface. I've taught golf for over 20 years but drumming has always been my passion and I'm now following the direction of my heart.

 

My love of drums has never wavered since I was 12 but I didn't follow that path because I looked at myself more as an athlete than as a musician. Teaching and helping others to improve has always been at the core of who I am and now I've combined my long time infatuation with my experience to mentor.

 

Guiding students thru the steps of this journey is extremely fulfilling and the more I teach the more energy I get from it. This isn't my backup plan this is my calling and I embrace every chance to teach because I know that we're always on the verge of breaking through to the next level of your musical destination.
