Teaching Philosophy–I 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:
• Master’s Degree in Elementary Education and taught elementary school (4th grade) for 5 years and middle school science for one year.
• 31 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.
