Robert teaches beginning to advanced drum students.

Beginners will work on basic technique, rhythm, rudiments, coordination, and playing simple beats.

Intermediate students will work on basic technique, more difficult rudiments, fills, more difficult beats and grooves, and music theory.

Advanced students will work on basic technique (drummers ALWAYS work on basic technique!), complex rudiments and fills, difficult coordination, complex grooves, polyrhythms, listening, and improvisation.

Progress on an instrument is relative to how much a student practices. Students who wish to progress quickly should expect to maintain a daily practice schedule. Practice sessions don't necessarily need to be long. 20 minutes a day can go a lot farther than 140 minutes split up between two days of the week. It is especially important for beginners to play every day so they can build up the proper strength, coordination, and flexibility in their hands.
