On the first lesson we will talk about your short and long-term goals, and a lesson plan will be designed to achieve those goals. From there on each lesson will be a fun and challenging workshop in which I will help you gain technique and musicality in your favorite music styles, always working toward your goals. Each lesson generally starts off with previously assigned work, usually technique/reading skills exercises. We then work on new material (rudiments, rhythmic patterns, time signatures, etc.) and we finish off doing some fun stuff like learning new grooves or working on a specific song or piece chosen by you. I will always be stressing out throughout lessons the right way to practice.
What you will need for the first lesson:
Sticks and/or mallets
The method books to be used will be decided after this lesson.
The keys to get as much as you can from each lesson are these:
COMMIT to your goals.
PLAN your practice.
ALWAYS HAVE FUN while playing.
Do that and you will be surprising yourself with great achievements in no time!
