"It's a very proud day for a working professional musician when he gets to start competing for gigs with his students."
"Adoor of opportunity opened, when our son began drum lessons with Rick, about five years ago. The potential of music greatness, in our child, was unleashed and his love for music has flourished. With all of the chaos in life, I whole-heartedly appreciate having Rick as a teacher for our son....THANK YOU!!"

My students regularly win school jazz band auditions and some are music majors at respected colleges and universities. Others have gone on to become professional musicians!
I have had several drum instructors over the years I learned something from every one of them. Some were technicians and others were true musicians. Rick is a rare combination; excellent technician and solid musician. Rick has helped improve my technique and has also made me a better musician!
