Percussion fits well into any style of music and is a great way to have fun with other musicians. I teach cajon, congas, djembe, bongo, timbales, frame drum, and much more to students of all experience levels. I have traveled extensively to learn percussion in Africa and Latin America, and was able to perform and record with my teachers there. I can teach you how to get great sounds out of almost any object - that's what a percussionist does! In addition to world percussion, I have lots of experience in classical percussion for orchestra and band, and in mallet percussion. I performed orchestral and contemporary classical music on marimba, xylophone, vibraphone, and glockenspiel during my undergraduate degree, and studied Jazz vibraphone with Stefon Harris during my Masters degree. I would love to share any of this information with you, and we will play percussion together in the lessons. We can record loops and get creative to make sure we are always making real music. Ask me
*** Lesson Details *** My students will develop a passion for music and a desire to play! I like to get right to the experience of actually playing music. I start with learning songs, drum beats, and chord progressions and get to technique and music reading AFTER we have had some fun. My key to successful teaching is to create a custom curriculum for each student. Some students are interested in the details of how to do it "right", and others just want to rock. I try to adapt to different learning styles and musical goals to give each student an ideal experience. I want students to learn how to play, not just how to read or do drills. We will listen to music together, and talk about the function of each instrument. For drummers, I play bass lines on the piano and we lock
I can teach drum kit techniques, marching or concert band and orchestral percussion

I have much experience playing the drum kit and hand percussion instruments in various contexts, and am familiar with drum/percussion techniques for various genres and styles of music.
I first began playing the piano when I was six years old, and later in my childhood I also took on playing guitar, drums, and bass guitar. While my musical training began with classical music, it didn't take long before I started exploring other fields, such as jazz, blues, rock and more. Being a multi-instrumentalist familiar with various genres of music is one of the factors that has led me to be a flexible teacher with a very open-minded approach. I understand that each student is different, has their own unique ways of learning, and has their own personal goals of what they want to get out of music. Whatever those personal goals my be, I get a great deal of satisfaction out of helping each student achieve their goals in their musical journey. I will always try to challenge my ...
