Private Percussion Teacher

Hi, I'm Jeremiah! I've been playing drums/percussion since I was 11 years old. I'm 23 now with a BM in Percussion Performance and I love playing all types of music! Currently I:
• gig with local artists that come from a range of genres: from jazz to pop to rock to folk
• also have experience playing percussion in symphony orchestras/concert bands
• have also held the drum/percussion seat for 14 different musicals
If any or all of those areas are of interest to you, I'd love to see if we'd make a good match! I'm super excited to share what I've learned (and am still learning) with beginning/intermediate students that love the thrill and challenge that comes from performing live music, no matter what form that takes.

Darrell helped me a lot to get a handle on my Ableton rig. I needed to set up midi tracks, locate presets to create cool sounds from plugins. Then I needed to export the audio of a couple of those tracks to import into a separate Pro Tools project. Lot of progress, thanks Darrell! -- Frank S

Online Percussion Teacher

Being from Texas, music education became a huge part of my life from the moment I picked up a pair of sticks. I received two performance degrees from very prestigious music/percussion programs and I have been private teaching since 2013. Lessons with me could set you up for either great success or to simply have a very good time learning something new. Whatever goals you have, I will do my very best to fulfill them. I have training on the following instruments: marimba, xylophone, vibes, bells, snare drum, timpani, drum set, auxiliary instruments (tambourine, triangle, cymbals, tom-toms, etc) and a few hand drums.

Kelly
Sarah taught two of our sons beginning percussion lessons. She is very warm and put the boys at ease, without sacrificing expectations. She made lessons relatable to each boy and never compared them to each other. Sarah has a wealth of knowledge and breadth of experience that make her an excellent choice in percussion teachers.

"I am a high school band director and Cameron was our percussion instructor last school year. He did a wonderful job with the students! He covered all areas of percussion from marching band, to concert band, and even percussion ensemble. He pushed the students and expanded their skills on all percussion instruments, all while keeping things engaging for the students. He programmed for and rehearsed our three percussion ensembles last year. Cameron was an integral part of our band program and our students loved working with him!"

"Online Conga Drum Instruction

From Online pupil from England George D.

Johnny is an awesome teacher. Instructive. Quick to find what you need to focus on. Patient. Insightful. Funny. Just what you need if your time is precious, but you can get in front of webcam for a few hours a week. He's helped me get those tones right and given me the confidence to grow. Really, really importantly he's always there for questions and support outside of the lessons."
