Sound Check Music

In addition to university studies at the University of New Orleans, private instruction has been critical for my own development as a drummer, and my teachers have included Alex Jenkins, Ellen McDonald, John Baldwin PhD (Idaho State University), Leland Beech (principle percussionist with the New Orleans Symphony), , Mike Spiro, Rick Hearns (protégé of Mickey Hart), and Tim Ackerman.  Master classes have included Antonio Sanchez, Brian Gantz, Billy Cobham, Jeff Hamilton, and Louis Bellson.

Individual lessons are available through Sound Check Music in Grass Valley, CA.
