My series of reposting old blog entries lands on a timely subject this week. I don’t have any tours lined up any time soon, and my plan for at least the first half of 2014 is to dive head first back into my private lessons. I have a brand new (almost completed) teaching studio at the Risen Drums shop, I have a bunch of free time, and I have an itch to get teaching again.

Over the years I’ve had learning experiences sourced from a bunch of different dudes as well as the opportunity to be a teacher to a lot of different students. This post about what makes an effective teacher comes from those experiences.
