Hockessin, DE 19707
 Graduated Univ of Tenn 1980 (BS Engineering) 50+ years of drumming experience. I've run my current teaching studio since 1990 and teach about 15 students per week. My students typically range from 10 - 65 years old.  My drumming career started at the age of 12, when I began lessons in Junior High. For over fifty years, I have been in love with drums and drumming and have been lucky enough to have taught others the language of drums.My early beginnings include playing in several drum and bugle corps on Long Island and being selected to the New York All-State Band in my senior year of high school. I studied with the late Al Miller on Long Island for three years. Al gave me a a solid musical and technical background that has proved to be invaluable over the years and I still strive to improve upon. Al focused me on more intense reading, big band playing, drum set independence and a variety of drumming skills.  I was an U. S. Air Force musician for four years and gained invaluable experience playing in a multitude of musical settings.I have taught drums in the Hockessin, DE area for the past 26 years and have performed with small groups and orchestra’s in the surrounding area.

I am proud to be a member of the Drum Teachers Guild because it connects me with other percussionists from around the world.

 I was told before I could walk, I could play drums.  As far back as I can remember, drumming was the one thing I wanted to do more than anything else.  For Christmas, when I was six, my parents bought me my first drum set, a "toy" Noble and Cooley.  As soon as I could, I took formal lessons, percussion through the School Band Program, and drum set thru the local music center.  

 When I was in 6th grade, one of my teachers was retiring from playing drums in a jazz combo, and he recommended me as his replacement. Since then, I've been playing in Combos professionally.

 While in school I played in all the bands I could:  Concert Band, Marching band, Pep band, Jazz Band, etc.  I entered many percussion events in the district Solo and Ensemble Contests, and in high school, played in the District Honors Band, All-State Band, and All-Ohio State Fair Band.  

 One of the highlights from high school I remember most was winning an outstanding jazz soloist award at a Jazz Festival held in Toledo.  There were sixteen bands that performed, and the award was for rhythm which included all the musicians playing piano, bass, and drums.

 Another great experience was playing in the local rock band.  We were all in high school, and played some awesome shows.  Everyone in that group continues playing today.  I left the band when I went to college to study music.

 I studied Music at Bowling Green State University with Wendell Jones, a master on the vibes. I also played in all the bands I could there including : BGSU Marching Band, Concert Bands, and Jazz Band.  My emphasis was in percussion performance.

 Since college, there was a period of time where music took a back seat to raising a family and earning a living. I only played a few infrequent gigs.  However, I got back into it, full speed ahead, when my children got older.

 Currently, I'm an Adjunct Professor of Percussion at Terra State Community College.

 I'm also the Assistant Band Director and Percussion Instructor for the Woodmore Bands in Woodville and Elmore, OH.  I teach fifth grade through high school.

 I also give private percussion lessons and teach about 22 students weekly.  Students range from 6 years to post college.

 I play in pit Orchestras for many community theater productions and high school musicals.

 Right now I'm in two bands.  One, called Sarabande,  plays music from all eras.  It is a six peice band that plays waltzes, polkas, oldies, etc. A band fit for all occasions.

 I also play in a Pop/Rock Music group called MT3.   I have loads of fun with both bands.  I'm fortunate that all band members are seasoned musicians!

 My future plans are to keep teaching and playing!! I am active in the list of Societies and Memberships below:
