About Gary I.

Since i was young, I have dedicated myself to the love of music. I have been playing drums since I was 7 years old. I have played guitar and piano since I was 15 years old. I started giving piano and guitar lessons when I was in high school to friends and neighbors. I started playing professionally at the age of 16 on drums. I have toured extensively throughout Europe, and North America and have played on many recordings. Some have been featured on video games and in documentaries/movies.

Why I Work Well with Kids

I work very well with kids of this age because, I teach in a way that makes things fun and most importantly interesting! I am extremely patient. I find it very gratifying to share my knowledge of music so they too can experience a lifetime of all the wonderful opportunities that I have. I have a lot of experience working with students from the ages of 5 to 20.
