I have taught various levels of percussion and consider it to be my second best instrument. I currently teach one beginner on primarily snare drum and some drum set.
Hello, my name is Brian and I am currently studying my Bachelor's in Music Education at VanderCook College of Music. It is the only college in the world that specializes in specifically Music Education, and has been since 1909. The school teaches us a basic understanding of 17 instruments and voice, while also teaching theory, aural skills, music history, professional ed courses, and includes a large number of various ensembles. Because of this, I'm able to teach some basic concepts on all of the band/orchestra instruments. Personally, I started taking piano lessons in 2000 and started drum set lessons in 2002. I've always had a dual musician life after that point, and was apart of the band and jazz band programs from 5th grade until now (sophomore in college). While ...
I teach percussion from traditional north African lineage, as well as my 10 years of research and experience. Emphasis is on connecting with the instrument and space, and learning to engage in rhythmic conversation or trance.
Music begins with the body. We can begin by making it very comfortable to hold an instrument and produce sound. From here rhythm, melody, and song come naturally.
My goal is to be there to help you absorb the music with as little obstruction and effort, making learning easy, enjoyable, and gratifying.

Professional percussionist with experience on a variety of instruments; work experience includes the Colorado Ballet, Boulder Philharmonic, and Colorado Music Festival
Originally from Indiana, David has been teaching music in both the private and public school sectors for 12 years. Getting his start as a drumline instructor with only 4 students, David soon expanded his teaching to include both guitar and piano, which he studied under Frank Puzzulo (of Miles Davis' group) at Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana.
Upon graduating Ball State, David moved to Colorado to study jazz and classical music with Dr. Douglas Walter, an accomplished percussionist who is known for his versatility and multiple percussion talents. He also studied piano and guitar in his off time, jamming with several rock and jazz groups both in and out of school.
In 2006, David left the college scene with a Masters in Music and moved to Florida where he began his ...
I have been teaching and performing as a percussionist for almost a decade. I have performed with some amazing artists in all styles of music and I continue to perform and study. I am well in several areas of percussion ranging from drum set to world percussion to classical percussion, but I specialize in Afro-Cuban, Brazilian and Caribbean percussion. I also work with young students to develop basic rhythm and musicality using Orff instruments, drum stick, buckets, boomwhackers, and other fun objects.

I teach all ages and skill levels. I have taught young children (from age 5) as well as teens and adults. I enjoy teaching all types of students and always tailor my lessons to the ability and personality of the student.
I am a graduate of the Oberlin Conservatory of Music with a bachelors in jazz drum set performance. I have toured with various bands in the US, Asia, and Europe and recently completed six months of teaching, studying, and performing music in Brazil.
I teach all levels and all styles of music, from Rock to Jazz to Latin-American rhythms. In my lessons I maintain a healthy balance of drum basics (rudiments, stick technique) and helping the students learn the music that would like to play. Learning the fundamentals gives students the tools they need to be creative as possible. I can prepare students for school band and jazz band auditions as well as prepare them to play in a band of their own!
