25 years drumming experience, current roster of 25 students

 I have openings for drummers of all ages and skill levels.

My teaching method is unique. I have created my own drum curriculum that covers the full skill level spectrum. Included are exercises and concepts that I have developed and refined to make a drum method that is very user-friendly and concise. I use this curriculum with my students through the site UDEMY.

I love Professional drum teachers Guild because Marty is the man and has brought together great teachers from all over the world to share their experiences and philosophies in one place.
