Communication is the most important thing between a teacher and a student when you start taking drum lessons. The ability to introduce and explain an idea to another person in a way that they can clearly understand and incorporate is what separates a good teacher from someone that can only play the drums well. Without that ability to communicate clearly, the knowledge and expertise of a drummer are useless to the student. I’ve spent a big part of my life striving and developing simple and effective ways of communicating ideas and concepts to my students. I understood early on that my communication is only as good as the response and results I get, so my goal is to be always prepared to change and adjust my approach so my students can achieve faster and easier results. I believe everyone can learn how to play drums. The key is through communication to find the right approach that works best with that particular student, and use it to make for a fun and enjoyable learning experience. Learning and discovering new things is how we grow as human beings and should never feel like a chore. One thing that makes learning easier is having a step by step routine when you approach new and challenging material. Routine can boost your confidence and give you the courage to learn things that seemed impossible before. I will help you create a routine that will make practicing fun and exciting, and will motivate you to explore your ideas creatively. Your lessons will follow a curriculum based on three fundamentals: Rhythms, Timing, and Rudiments. While this is a common material when studying drums, my lessons will introduce you to a completely different and new approach outlined in my book The Movement Method. It focuses on learning and practicing with a specific set of movements that will help you with the development of the two most important aspects of drumming - steady timing and consistency.
