“My favourite part of teaching is helping uncover and harness the passion that each student holds. I try whenever possible to let the student choose their direction and when they are passionate, this is never a problem. Basically, I enjoy helping them by opening their minds to the musical and drumming history that surrounds their favoured music, by introducing them to the techniques that go along with these styles. Whilst doing this, I think it is also important to have ongoing dialogue with them about what they want out of drumming and music and how they might be able to get there. It is, in my mind, important for this to be in line with what is being studied at the time. The experience I have gained as a student, a teacher and also as a performer in both live and studio settings, is invaluable to me as a teacher. I have learnt many lessons along the way and I look forward to learning something every time I teach or perform.”
