I’ve been teaching drum lessons in the Santa Cruz area since 1996. I began teaching because I’m very passionate about sharing my drumming experience and helping to inspire students of all ages and abilities to play and enjoy the drums. My private drum studio is located in Soquel, Ca., is fully soundproofed, and contains side-by-side teacher/student drumkits of excellent quality.
Everything you need to make your lesson productive and fun is waiting for you in the studio. When you arrive for your lesson, you might be lucky enough to be greeted by TipToe, the cat, and although he might want to join you in your lesson, he doesn’t come beyond the studio door. The waiting room is artistically painted with drummer legends who have inspired me over the years. But you won’t be waiting long, as I’m very punctual and know that you’re looking forward to getting into the studio for your private lesson time. Once in the studio, you might adjust the drum-kit to your fit and preference and we’ll start hitting some drums and having some fun!
