Drums Teacher

Influences: Max Roach, Elvin Jones, Roy Haynes, Bill Stewart, Lewis Nash, Peter Erskine

About Me:
Matt's approach to lessons is centered upon working with the unique potential and interests of each student. The study of rudiments, snare drum solos, coordination, melody, form, improvisation, and reading music is balanced with practical musical applications and transcriptions from music in which the student is interested. Student recitals and group performance opportunities are organized each semester.
