I began teaching drums
in the mid 90s at Center Stage Music in Renton Washington and ended up at A Sharp Music where I still am.
Us drummers love to play
prepared to practice every day and have a great time!
I eventually expanded to Cedar Heights MS in the Kent School
taught for 3 years at Lakota MS in Federal Way as well as Eckstein MS and Roosevelt HS
in the Seattle School District for many years.
I taught at
stores in Seattle and Bellevue for many years as well as the
Bennett Drum Shop in Bellevue.
If you or your child are interested in studying drums with
me and you live in the greater Seattle area, I am now teaching
at the A Sharp Music Company in Renton and at my home in North
