Drums and Percussion is my passion. I have been playing drums since I was 5 years of age. I got started by my grandfather which noticed I had an interest in drums. He taught me how to read drum notation and started me on music theory. I later realized the importance of music theory and continued my studies in percussion and music in middle school all the way up to the university level at Texas A & M in Commerce Texas. I have also studied with drum and percussion greats as Jim Hall, Dr. Robert Houston, Ed Soph, Chris Adams, Chuck Silverman, Richard Wilson, Georgie Padilla and most recently, Thomas Lang. I am currently performing in the San Antonio area anywhere from seven to five nights a week and teaching at several locations (Sam Ash, Studio 88, and Music Institute of San Antonio)

Featured Drum Student of the Week

Spencer is one of my former students, but I chose to feature him because he over came several obstacles. spencer was
four years old when he started drum lessons with me. I started him on drum set but also did some piano lessons and found out that he really liked reading music, so I started implementing more reading into his drum lessons.

Spencer did his first recital on December of 2013 and did a great job. Hope you keep playing drums Spencer, as
you did a might fine job.

Today I want to feature one of my in-home students. Arik started with me about Three months ago and is doing a great job. He is a very focused student and always practices even with his busy schedule. Arik loves his drumming so much that he wants to take a lesson on his birthday which is just around the corner.

This is the type of student that makes everything I do as a teacher worthwhile. Keep the good work and I’ll see you on your next lesson.
