with Ed Mays
I began teaching drums
in the mid 90s at Center Stage Music in Renton Washington
and eventually expanded to Cedar Heights MS in the Kent School
taught for 3 years at Lakota MS in Federal Way. I taught at
stores in Seattle and Bellevue for many years as well as the
Bennett Drum Shop.
If you or your child are interested in studying drums with
me and you live in the greater Seattle area. I now teach
at the A Sharp Music Company in Renton, at my home in North
Seattle, as well as Eckstein MS and Roosevelt HS
in the Seattle School District.
Emphasis is on rudimental development as applied to snare drum and drum
Students will develop a basic understanding of all styles
rock, jazz & bebop, blues, funk, and Latin and learn reading
groove lock, and improvisation skills in the process.
will learn several approaches to 4-way independent coordination as well
linear coordination techniques. Us drummers love to play
prepared to practice every day and have a great time!
