About Rick N’ Roll Drum Lessons
Levels taught: Beginner, Intermediate
I tailor the lessons to the students' goals, whether it's playing in school, in a band, or in church. Early in the process I incorporate the songs the student wants to play and that makes it fun. But I also include rudiments, reading drum transcriptions, and learning proper movement and technique.
Teaches students: Ages 5+ and special needs
Teaching since: 2009
I have a life-long passion for music and a love of teaching. I started playing drums at a young age and I learned much from my own excellent drum teacher.
Throughout my school years I participated in marching band, orchestra, chorus and stage band. i have played for various local bands over the years. I currently drum at LCBC Church in Manheim. I have helped many students successfully audition for youth bands at their churches.
As a multi-instrumentalist, I encourage students to play drums musically, by listening more carefully to music, with a goal of developing students' own unique drumming styles, while staying within a framework of proper drum technique.
I welcome public school students, homeschoolers, and adults. Let's drum!
