Larry has been providing drum set and snare instruction
privately for over 30 years. He and his student each
play on their own drum set which aids in the learning
process. Larry also focuses on the art of using
"approaches" to convey particular ideas and
concepts to his students. This is an excellent
tool used to enable the student to better understand
and retain what is taught during the lesson.
In any given lesson, emphasis is usually placed on:
technique, rudiments, theory, ear training, time keeping,
performing skills, adapting to different styles, and
feels. To help apply what is learned, time is
always spent during each lesson to playing along with
music using his personalized CD's which are also complementary
to the student. In addition to using CD's, Larry also
records portions of the lesson onto a provided CD for
the students to use at home. He assists his students
in preparation for school band auditions, music college
entrance evaluations and helps to prepare students for
local drumming competitions as well. He is fluid
with several styles of playing and enjoys teaching people
of all ages.
Larry will assess each student's strengths in learning
and adapt his teaching style accordingly to fit their
needs. He takes a lot of pride in both playing
and teaching, and it shows in his work. His motto
is "Having fun doing what you love is the key to
success." Larry is also soon to release his
comprehensive method book: "Chasing the Drum."
