“As artists we need to share our knowledge
to the generations to come as we received it.”

My main goal is to keep the student inspired, focused and good spirited – the most important aspects to keep a student practicing, the only way to improve!


I design each drum lesson for the individual student and her/his needs.
I draw from many proven and well established drum methods and combine them with my own teaching method which I have developed over many years.




I have taught many students with special needs and can prepare students for college and high school auditions.

Through my performance experience with many different African, African-Caribbean and Latin American artists, I have gained a wide expertise in many world music styles, which can be explored in the studentʼs lesson.
