Teaching is very dear to my heart. I was fortunate enough to study under world class educators from a very young age. Their passion, clarity, and openness impacted me to follow their footsteps and create a teaching style that is positive and directed toward the tradition while driven by creativity and the students voice. I'm currently teaching jazz percussion and small ensembles at Kennesaw State University, Emory University, and my private studio. I am also available for seasonal teaching programs, workshops, clinics, and adjudication.
