If you've never played drums but have always wanted to, I offer a specific method that will have you drumming along to music in no time. I teach primarily out of a vintage drum shop in midtown, but also offer playing sessions in my Dumbo recording studio. My lessons are affordable, fun and fulfilling.

My first love was jazz music. After graduating from McGill University with a music degree in jazz performance, I spent a year in India studying tabla and indian singing. I then moved to NYC and played on the NYC Knicks drum team for several years, leaving that job for a gig playing drums for the Off Broadway show F#%king up Everything. I've written and produced music for theatre and film and have extensive studio experience as well.
My teaching style is the culmination of years refining how to make drumming simple and fun for beginners. My lessons are based around 3 step-by-step routines that are taught in tandem with music. As we go through these routines we apply the rhythms to recordings, connecting what we're learning to the music we listen to. As a result my students have found themselves able to jam with friends, start bands, or just put some headphones on and play along to their favorite songs after just a short time of study.
I love what I do and it makes me happy to be able to share my passion with others. I’m a patient, adaptable, and professional Drum Teacher ready to help you reach your goals.
