Instructional Mission Statement
"Instruction designed to take you to the professional level..."

"Educating students and professional musicians, through private instruction, with concepts and techniques necessary to achieve the Consistent Excellence necessary for success within the contemporary music scene."

"We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit." Aristotle

Lessons are tailored for each individual's strengths and weaknesses, while the core lesson-plans remain the same for ALL students. Students, who remain in my instruction long enough, can learn, with due diligence:

  • Hand Technique - Master the 40 P.A.S. rudiments. Master is significantly different than know. (Matched & Traditional grips)
  • Reading Music: Learn/ Improve your Reading, Sight Read, &/ or Interpret Drum Set Charts
  • Coordinated Independence - Drums presents itself as a unique instrument because of the four-limb coordination that is necessary to master.
  • Play and understand Jazz (Bop and Beyond Bop) and Swing
  • Drum Fill Concepts (beyond the simple clichés)
  • Listening & Repertoire: Focused listening concepts, Rhythmic dictation training, Transcriptions.
  • Develop a “time-center” with & without a click
  • Stylistic Development - ethnic and world grooves
  • Musicianship Studies - Music Theory & Ear Training - Learn music terminology & song-form. Become a more well rounded "Musician"
  • Moeller Method (video sample)
