Surrounded by music my entire life, I began taking guitar lessons at age 7, and drum lessons at age 15. I excelled in marching, symphonic, and jazz bands during high school, and majored in music education at Northeast Louisiana University. I also developed a lot of my drum set abilities by listening passionately to all types of music and practicing an extreme number of hours per day.
I have been teaching private drum lessons for over 15 years. For my students, I provide custom lessons and exercises for development of musicality in drumming, reading, dexterity, smooth execution, accuracy, dynamics, speed, and manipulation of complex time signatures.Striving to reach the boundaries of musical possibility, my goal is to constantly push my own limits and the limits of my students to new levels.
