Several of Jeff's students have gone on to become professional drummers as well as local drum instructors themselves. He has also had two students who have chosen to study with him after receiving Gold Records for work they had done previously in the music industry. He considers this quite an honor and an compliment to his teaching.

"I've been taking drum lessons from Jeff for years. He's a very versatile and experienced musician. He's opened up my style, feel, and skill to make me not just a better drummer, but an experienced and diverse player. I look forward to my lesson every week, not only to have fun, but to expand my mind. Thanks Sensei!"


I first learned how to play from hearing and listening which only got me so far. I couldn't count notes, I couldn't read notes, I couldn't even play a paradiddle. After taking lessons with Jeff, he's not only become my mentor, but he's opened my mind to new ways of playing -new styles of playing and brings everything up a new level with his "accelerated learning" curve. I highly recommend Jeff for any style and or any levels!


I have been taking drum lessons with Jeff for over ten years, and besides his obvious excellent drumming skills and teaching abilities, he has taught me to be a great drummer and he has become one of my closest lifelong friends. I strongly recommend Jeff to anyone seriously interested in learning to play drums.
