I'm Charlie. I play music, using the drum set, various percussion, guitars, wind and keyboard instruments. I teach music, in classrooms, recital halls, and living rooms. I write, arrange, and transcribe music, and sometimes I write about music.
This site is a look at what I've learned, what I'm learning, and what I can help you learn. Scroll down for more on some of my musical projects, and take a look around using the links above. And of course, drop me a line!
For over 15 years, I've been sharing what I've learned about the drum set. Take a look around and see how I can help you reach your musical goals!
I give lessons on drums, bass, guitar, saxophone, piano/keyboards, music theory, and music history, appreciation and performance workshops to students of all ages.
