I believe that any kid, student or adult that wants to pursue music should have a chance to do so. I love teaching and I have a wide range of experiences based on 35+ years in the music business that I can share. Presently my activities include teaching drum set at Elon University, Director of the Elon world percussion ensemble, teaching in my private Chapel Hill studio, frequent performing in the triangle area, studio session player, and composer and producer at Duart, my home studio. Just a few past experiences include band director, Nashville studio owner, producer, session musician, performer with the Chuck Davis African-American enmemble and international touring musician. I have an MM in Percussion Performance from Northern Illinois University, a BM in Music Education from East Carolina University and AT (Audio Technology) Diploma from the SAE Institute.  

These and other experiences have shaped who I am as a teacher. My view of the music world is expansive and I work hard to make sure that I create a learning envirnoment that fits your need whether you are a hobbist, a beginner or experienced professional.

My skill set isn't limited to percussion. I have a diploma in Audio Technology from SAE in Nashville and I can teach you how to record your own music or I can produce a single or a record of your original material.  I have been playing guitar since I was 14 and I teach beginning guitar or piano.  I can craft specialized lessons that include learning an instrument with recording technology skills. 

Send me an email today and let's set a time to talk about what YOU really want to do with your musical creativity. I am here to help and excited to be part of your dream!
