Willing to teach

Advanced only


I have been teaching for over 35 years. i cover a wide spectrum about drums and drumset from mechanics to rudiments to various styles of playing. My students range from beginner to very advanced; from very young to adults. I love teaching and work at always improving my methods with the same vigor as i work on always expanding and improving my playing and musicianship.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
