Teaching PhilosophyI believe that everyone has the potential to be a good drummer, no matter your age or your level of natural talent or experience. All it takes is a combination of a self-motivated practice routine and the right kind of instruction. I will devise a multi-sensory learning plan for you, tailor-made to fit your learning style.

Other points of interest related to my teaching practice:

Masters Degree in Elementary Education and taught elementary school (4th grade) for 5 years and middle school science for one year.

• 28 years of drum lesson teaching experience.

I teach students of all ages but specialize in teaching children as I developed a method called Drumset for Preschoolers (see books) that originated from a program that I developed at the Barness Family Jewish Community Center. This method uses the drumset to teach both general early childhood and music skills.

• My books Drumset For Preschoolers and Drumcraft involve a novel approach using mathematics to teach reading, writing, and playing rhythms.
