The meetings may include lesson techniques, but I aim to go beyond the usual lessons. My aim is to overcome the obstacles that are preventing you from achieving your desired improvement. Each musician is unique, and it’s a work that is completely personal. My work is to understand you and help you improve your musical potential. My background knowledge is based on my own experience playing Stick in live concerts in many different situations, including solo concerts, bands, tours, recordings, and teaching.
