I feel very fortunate to have had very inspirational teachers and mentors with me through my musical journey. I wish to be the same to each and every one of my students. My teaching philosophy is goal based meaning once my student and I decide on a goal together, the aim of each lesson is to become closer and closer to that goal.

  • Technique Training
  • Posture
  • Grip and sound production on the snare drum
  • Reading Exercises
  • Rock and jazz beats for drum-set
  • Snare drum studies
  • Song analysis in any given genre

My students will build a solid foundation and the necessary skills needed in order to grow as a musician.
