Jeff has been teaching and performing for over 30 years. He has experience in jazz,
rock, blues, latin, improv, musicals, creating solos, double bass, drum line, and odd
time signatures. Students ages range form 5 years to 55, and all skill levels are
welcome. Jeff believes that teaching drumming can be approached in a
multidimensional fashion. That is to say that many aspects can be added together to
produce a well rounded drummer. Music reading combined with jazz, improv, rock
and blues, latin, rudiment studies, and learning to play by ear can all be taught
together or separately to give students the tools necessary to achieve their goals.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long will I have to take lessons?
Beginners may want to think about taking lessons for an extended period of time up to a full year.  It can take that long to learn to
read music, become comfortable with different styles of drumming, and become comfortable with the drums. For advanced
students, anywhere from 1-6 months might be more appropriate.

Am I to old/young to begin learning drums?
NO! Students as young as 5 and any age can learn to play. All it takes is some practice.

How often do I have to practice?
As often as possible. You will master the drums much faster if you have time to practice. Most people do well with about 15-30
minutes, 4 times per week.

Do I have to have a drum set to take lessons?
No. Many people benefit from learning to play a single drum first (most commonly a snare drum) and graduating to a drum set later.

How long before I can play in a band?
As a beginner, if you are willing to practice, if you put in the time and be patient, you may be able to preform live with a band in as
little as 4-6 months!
