"My approach to teaching drums is to get the student to understand the concept of time then learn Beats, fills, soloing ability, rudiments and song form so they can function in a musical performance situation" I welcome beginner, intermediate and, advanced students. I like to teach out of George Stones "Stick control, Accents and rebounds, Carmine Appice's "Realistic Rock", Joe Porcaro's " Grooving with rudiments" and my materials.
