The Studio

Drumistick Studio started in June 2002 in fulfillment of a dream to offer full-spectrum, professional drum and percussion instruction without having to go to Milwaukee or other major cities for quality lessons.  Through state-of-the-art equipment, professional guest clinicians, and a wealth of knowledge from years of study under the world’s finest drummers, the studio is able to offer more than just “drum lessons.”  Drumistick Studio prepares the serious student for the exciting, and often challenging, world of modern day percussion.

Serious students of all ages come to the studio, ranging from 6 to 60 and with all levels of ability. Teaching focuses on drum set (rock, funk, R&B/hip hop, jazz/swing, contemporary Christian, and world beat), snare (rudimental, concert, and symphonic), and ethnic percussion (Afro-Cuban, Brazilian, and Caribbean).  Emphasis is on strong fundamentals, including theory, technique, and reading.  Students who apply themselves leave with a well-rounded and qualified education in the art of drums and percussion.

My love for the drums and percussion instruments started in my early teens and led me across the globe.  I’ve toured nationally and abroad, including Europe, China, Canada, and the Caribbean.  My personal studies have been with some of the country’s most gifted drummers and percussionists – Gene Jackson, Ryan Korb with the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point, Graham Lear out on the West Coast, Tony Rongo from New York City, and Casey Scheurell from the Berklee College of Music.

I’ve had the privilege of freelancing with various professional bands, productions, and recording projects including Brass Differential horn band, Mercury Marine (featured in a commercial), Doctors in Recital, and area church worship teams.  I have an affiliation with Heid Music as an instructor and also work with the percussion students at Notre Dame Academy.

I’ve been a drum and percussion instructor in the Green Bay/Fox Valley area since 1986 and am an active member of the Percussive Arts Society.
