I know you want to play fast but you need to slow down in the beginning to learn the patterns. One at a time, slow and steady. Once you have the pattern down, gradually increase your speed. I will help you learn the patterns and develop you speed. I will demonstrate the beat or rudiment so that you can see, hear and play along to prepare you for playing with others.

Online Lessons

I have recorded demos on You Tube and can Live Stream Lessons. I can take requests and explain how to play from beginning to advanced techniques like Fusion.

I started taking lessons in 1976. My teacher Perry Hall, No.1 Drum and Bugle Corp. Instructor for Colton High School, said," Anyone can play a drum beat. I'm gonna teach you how to solo."
By 1979 I was in a band with a producer who payed for us to make a demo 45 record at A & M Studios in Hollywood, CA. We played at The Troubadour on the Sunset Strip and the Van Nuys Rock Corporation.

I will make learning fun by teaching both drum beats and snare rudiments so that you will be able to solo on the entire drum set. Or I can teach the marching snare with stick tossing and other tricks. Or both. Same price.
