If you want to take drum lessons from a seasoned professional WORKING drummer with over 30 years experience, hit me up!
If you are a beginner and you just want to learn how to play a specific song, or if you are advanced and need some help with problem areas HIT ME UP!
I've been playing and recording in LA and OC for over 30 years. I am a 1983 MUSICIAN'S INSTITUTE graduate. My biggest influences are John Bonham (Led Zeppelin), Stewart Copeland (The Police), Vinnie Colaiuta (Frank Zappa, Sting), and more recently, Darren King (MuteMath).
Some of the artists I've played and recorded with: Scott Weiland (Stone Temple Pilots), Colbie Caillat, Chuck Negron (Three Dog Night), Bobby Kimball (Toto), Gian Marco, Dave Mason (Traffic), Dionne Warwick, Mariners Church Irvine (primary drummer for 10 years), Tim Timmons (popular Christian artist), Saddleback Church San Clemente (4 years), Disneyland Tomorrowland Terrace (5 years) I also play live and record with these local Singer Songwriters: AJ Degrasse , Mike Vitale, Dallas and Doll, Kurt Hunter, Scott Mickelson, Mark Anthony Castrillon.
I have 2 drum kits set up for lessons so we can sit face to face and work stuff out!
It's a cool, fun, comfortable environment to learn in. Just tell me what you want to do and we will do it. I don't have some boring "set method" of teaching. I was a self-taught drummer long before I attended Musician's Institute, so my methods are not the norm. I can figure out where you are at, and get you to where you want to be as a player, and I make it fun!
I can also show you studio techniques like drum tuning, mic'ing, playing with a click track, etc. I have been using a few different iPhone/Android apps that are amazing, and they will help your playing immediately so bring your phone or iPad. I can also teach you how to incorporate electronics into your acoustic set up. I have a really cool hybrid kit that does all that.
I can teach you how to do this using Pro Tools, Abelton, Logic, etc. I taught at The Rok Academy in Long Beach for 3 years and now teach at my studio in Cerritos. I teach kids from age 6 and up, and have taught students in their 50's. I am happy to provide references if you'd like to speak to some of my students. I offer half hour lessons for $30 and one hour lessons for $50. I love seeing how quickly students progress and have fun!
