About Me

I began my private study in Bristol, CT with Hugo Grignoli. Later, I studied privately with Michael LeRosa at Julius Hartt School of Music. While attending Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA my studies were wtih Robert Kaufman and Dean Anderson.

I've studied privately in New York with Andrew Cyrille, and in Boston with Joe Hunt, and Lenny Nelson.

 

Teaching Philosophy

An accomplished performer and private instructor I accept students who are dedicated to learning to play the drums. I not ony wish students to develop technical proficiency and musical skill, but to have fun understanding all there is to the art of drumming.
