My teaching method is based on the western music education style, incorporating more modern elements and techniques that I've found to be useful in my personal research.
I'll start with individual assessments and teach basic techniques and fundamentals, then teach standard rudiments and basic(rhythmic) music reading and build from there. A lot of a musicians prowess comes from self-practice(practicing at home) so my lessons are exercises to be taken home and practiced.
I'm a drummer of 20+ years and recording engineer of 15+ years with experience in one on one and group drum training/lessons and countless live performances(both for concert band personal music projects). I graduated from Gulf Coast State College out of Panama City, FL. In 2016 I started an Audio Production business called Jam Lounge Studios where I record, produce, and publish music from various artists.
