"I've always wanted to teach, I've always been able to teach. I've always had the ability to develop skills in myself and others quickly. I've always wanted to be a drummer but I was formally trained as a percussionist. I've been fortunate to have had terrific college instructors, however in seven years of college I took not even one advanced lesson on drumset. The drumset has not been recognized as a legitimate instrument of study. The Drummer's Program was born out of need, developed to meet the needs of drummers left unaddressed by university degree programs. The text, Drumming With Understanding, is a cornerstone of the program and with the inclusion of the chapter 'A Standard Notation for Drumset', Drumming With Understanding takes a great stride toward legitimizing our instrument. For those of you -drummers- who are interested in a career behind your kit, I invite you to join me. The Drummer's Program will train you, certify you, and assist you with job placement. I do hope to hear from you!"
