My Mission

Experienced and Professional Teacher

I have played the drums ever since I was a little boy which means I have now been playing for over 55 years and have played and performed in countless bands in this time. My lessons are suitable for any student no matter what genre you want to learn, together we can study and play in any style. No matter what direction you want to go, my lessons are suitable for all.

I take on any students of any ages from 5 upwards as I feel it's never too early or too late to learn to rock as I myself as a small child used to grab empty coffee cans, a couple of sticks from the yard and used to sit there making all kinds of 'joyful' noises. Most of my current students usually hold down a 60 minute lesson per week with me as this tends to bring the most consistent development and progress.

My Lessons

All Styles and Genres Covered

No genre is off limits or is going to be too much of a challenge for us to learn. All lessons are tailored and suited to match you and your style.

Alongside my experience I feel that I am a friendly and approachable teacher. My main goal is to see you achieve all of your drum playing dreams. I will work tirelessly with you to push your limits and to help you grow as a musician while being in a comfortable, relaxed and pressure free environment.

My Experience as a Teacher

I have played the drums ever since I was a little boy and I started my first band when I was 14. I now have over 55 years experience as a drummer and still love it just as much to this day. I have played in many different bands of all different styles and in 2005 I started the Daytona Chapter of 'Drummers for Jesus'.

I worked with students from the ages of 5+. While this may be a young age, I feel this is a great age to start drumming. Children tend to be great learners and they can absorb high amounts of information so I feel it's never too early to learn to rock. I tend to recommend 30 minute lessons for the younger rockstars.

When I was in Elementary school I joined the school band and learned to play marching band Snare Drum. Around the age of 14 I started my first 'Garageband' and our first show was played at 'Skateland' where we received $5 per man. Since this point I have played and performed in many different venues in and around Daytona.

More About My Lessons

I am a friendly dude who is very passionate about drums and all things music. It is my goal and passion to offer you the best quality lessons possible to ensure that you are able to grow and develop in to the drummer you have always wanted to be. Over all these years I have learnt such a wide span of knowledge and skills and I am here to pass these skills on to you!

I do my best to pack every session we do with as much useful information as I possibly can. We can explore specific topics and techniques in depth and together we can help you improve on your weak areas. All the while I will do my best to keep the lessons as fun as possible while overcoming the challenges we all face when learning a new instrument.

My current band 'Drummers of Jesus' is still active today and I absolutely love playing and performing in this. Having this real world gigging experience over all these years, I feel allows me to offer high quality drum lessons that not only help you improve as a technical drummer, but help you grow as an all round musician too.
