Beginner, Intermediate an Advanced students welcome.
I have a studio in South Austin.
I have been performing since the age of 15. I have played in Jazz, Rock, Pop, Zydeco, Funk, Cover, and Experimental projects. I am a top drummer for hire in town. (Iím the guy you call on short notice when your drummer quits or canít make it for some reason).
I also play in a Variety band and a Classic Rock band.
I have studio experience as well as extensive stage experience.
I am particularly interested in students who are ready to take their stage dynamics and ability to the next level.
I teach from the perspective that:
Some musicians have a large vocabulary, (many chops)
Some musicians have a lot to say, (phrasing and dynamics)
We will work on what you have to say and express and how to say it through this the most powerful and passionate of instruments.
I have also worked for Fortune 500 Company and been in the business world for many years as a consultant and headhunter. You can count or a professional and conscientious experience. I also have many years of experience as a coach and an adult educator.
Rates are $35 per hour at my studio near Riverside Dr. and Pleasant Valley.
