Patrick’s teaching philosophy is to cater to each student's goals and aspirations. Patrick shares his years of extensive touring and session playing experience to provide students not only with a solid foundation in percussion, but also to make learning the instrument thoroughly enjoyable and rewarding.
Drum Jams was born in 2004 in between sets of my Modern Jazz Trio gigs. It has grown into a twice annual full day event where Students (of All ages) perform (with tracks, solo, double drums, with a band) in front of a packed house(250-300) and showcase their drumming skills and musicianship. Many prizes are given and won (sometimes a drum kit!) Great Thanks go out to my Endorsers for their support. I am so proud of my Students! We also always collect canned goods and non-perishables for the nearby food bank. Come out and join us!
