Private Lessons

I am currently offering private lessons online using the Zoom platform. If you are interested in improving your technique, music theory knowledge, sight-reading or drum score execution I can help. To see if I'm the right as a teacher for you I'm happy to offer a one hour session free of charge so you can ask questions, explain what you'd like to accomplish in future lessons and receive an introduction to my curriculum-related materials. If you'd like to book a free lesson, please send an email to

Taking private lessons is the most efficient way to increase your knowledge base and improve your playing. Based on the aspects of your playing on which you'd like to focus I can design a curriculum to fit your individual needs. I can help you...


...learn to read music

...master the 60 rudiments of pipe band drumming with an advanced and detailed tracking system

...become an effective and musical score composer

...expand your knowledge of music theory the skills necessary to lead a drum corps or be an asset as a corps member
