I teach what the students need to learn to think and play on their own and to find musical solutions with the musical tools I provide for them. I integrate the study of music theory wherever and whenever it is needed. Each lesson is packed with easy to understand conceptual materials as well as songs and technique that will lead them to be a far better player and musician. I use all of the top music books along with materials I have compiled over the 40 plus years I have been teaching. Plus , I play guitar with my drum students and drums with my bass and guitar students as well as add piano with the other instruments emphasizing the study of rhythm and the development of playing in the rhythm section.
Teaching for over 40 years, my students have gone on to attend the top 5 elite music schools in America including the Oberlin Conservatory of Music, the Berklee College of Music, Julliard, & the Thornton Music Program at USC. Many are playing and teaching professionally making their own original music and performing concerts across America. Some have had #1 & #2 Hit records , endorsements from major music companies and have played the top performance venues in LA to sell-out crowds. As a Music Director, I have taught private schools building successful music programs.
