I am in my third year as a music education major at Liberty University and am under the direction of some incredible mentors. I have experience playing percussion in the university wind symphony, percussion ensemble, marching band, and even indoor drumline. I also have successfuly completed my music theory and musicianship classes. With all these experiences, I have a vast array of knowlegde and lessons I have learned throughout my time here that I would love to share with my students to help them become the musician that they aspire to be. I believe that it is never too late to start learning music, and that music is so beneficial to us no matter where we are in life. I specialize in mallet instruments, both marching and concert but I am also proficient with others like timapni and snare drum. Send me a message if you're interested!

Been Playing & Performing For 35 years now! Beginning to Intermediate Percussion lessons and beats that are actually used in today's and yesteryear's "hit songs". It's no secret, percussion is the backbone or "foundation" to any hit song. I break down percussion to its most basic rudiments so that you will grow by leaps and bounds instead of just crawling along. You have to walk before you can run so getting it right initially is very important to moving forward and getting you playing your favorite songs quickly and accurately..
