    Introduction
    I've been a working professional drummer for 30 years. Based out of Atlanta I have performed all over the eastern U.S. and with bands I have owned as a mananging partner or as a hired side man.
    I bring this experience as a teacher to you drummers who seek versatility and technique that allow you to fit in most musical situations. I've written my own teaching method "Practical Drum Set" DVD and work book.
    This method is a compilation of years of drum study that has gave me the best results from my students.

    My Teaching Background
    I've been teaching 29 years and counting. At the moment I keep 25 to 30 students on my private roster and consult school music programs. Being a writter of my own method my goal has been to keep the drumming art fun and modivating. If you the student are enjoying this experience you WILL practice. My text format is geared towards a practical easy approach to performing grooves and song forms so you the student can perform with other players, jam with your favorite records, or fit into a working band situation.

    My Teaching Philosophy
    Lets make it fun. I try to get my students playing grooves and songs as soon as they can.
    From day one we learn the language of music; reading the notes allows you to remember and execute your lesson after leaving the class room. I tell all my students "you won't remember every part of a lesson lecture"
    you will remember what is written during your practice sessions at home.
    Using your ears is very important; remembering patterns and learning to make then sound "musical" is an important goal. A music chart is just a road map on where your hands and feet go.
    I strees this in my DVD and work book "Practical Drumset".

    Rates And Availability
    I teach at home and at "All Star Music". I will disclose the location information on request.
