I knew right away the first time I spoke with Glenn over the phone that he was a good match for my drumming style and would be able to help me meet my objectives. What first impressed me about Glenn was his deep love of percussion in many different styles on various different instruments, the fact that he is a professionally schooled musician whose lifelong vocation is drumming, and that what he has always enjoyed most is teaching others.
At my first lesson he immediately identified problems with my kicking and sticking that were holding me back, and he began coaching me—literally hands-on in that first lesson, which was what I needed—so that I could “feel” the proper technique. I was discouraged at the prospect of starting all over but Glenn was insistent that this would pay off, and it did. After 6 weeks or so, I found that anything I learned I was able to play at any speed I wanted and that timing was no longer a challenge because everything suddenly felt very natural.
