I was an instructor at Big Beat Music Studio and Spotswood Music Academy here in NJ. I'm currently a drum instructor at Guitar Center in Ocean Township also.

I can teach you how to read drum notation, as well as melodic notation. I can help you learn your favorite songs or various styles/beats of music, such as rock, funk, latin, jazz, fusion, etc.. I can teach you on acoustic or electronic drums. The electronic drums have music to play along to in the brain of the kit, which is very helpful! I was trained on double bass drums at Berklee also, so I can teach you how to play the double bass or double pedal. I can instruct you on all of the snare rudiments and advanced drum fills are my specialty! I can teach you the correct beats and fills from Rush (Neil Peart) to Alecia Keys. Also, from many other bands and specific drummers. I enjoy teaching students, just like my own kids and it makes me proud to see them learn!

I'm also a MAC/Macintosh Instructor. I've been working on one in the graphic field since 1995. I've worked with Photoshop, Illustrator, Indesign, Microsoft Office, as well as 3D/Animation programs. I can teach key commands/shortcuts and installing programs onto your computer." less...
