My teaching style is informal but involved, with the emphasis on
individuality, expression, melody, style and freedom. I encourage my
students to approach the drum set as a melodic rhythmic instrument, to
discover both their creative and expressive ranges and to listen to as
many different kinds of music as possible. I believe that the key to
becoming a good musical drummer and good musician is to embrace as much
style and content as possible, from traditional approaches to more
contemporary ideas. I encourage my students to be musical and to develop a
keen ear for what is appropriate, relevant and contextual. I also
encourage my students to be free-thinkers, to develop their own ideas and
to play the way they want to play, not necessarily the way tradition
dictates.
