Teaching Info

I truly believe that, regardless of age, gender, race, anyone can play, it is all about attitude.
I bring a fun, relaxed learning environment for the student, where learning in Drumset begins with the fundamentals to playing in various styles of music, with focus on the individual students’ needs, and help provide opportunities in many aspects of music from recording, performing to understanding the current music industry for the students to express themselves and understand and enjoy music to it’s full potential, and teach and inspire them with many life lessons, such as teamwork, study skills, discipline and respecting one another, not just as musicians and performers, but as individuals, and treat each other with kindness as well as bring constant dedication to what they love, which they will have with them for the rest of their lives and inspire them every step of the way.

I teach at my home studio in Gowanbrae with availability and terms negotiable
