Mark is a great teacher for advanced students. Even after years of learning from other teachers Mark was able to find a number of spots for improvement on my first lesson.

My students have fun and learn quickly! I teach all skill levels and all styles of percussion, specializing in drum set, orchestra percussion, and four mallet marimba. Every beginner that takes a lesson with me with be able to play a drum beat and a snare drum piece on day one. After a few more lessons, they will be learning songs and creating their own drum beats! All ages welcome. Lessons are customized and catered to the needs/goals of each student.

Private Drum Teacher

Experience teacher of 13 years working from other music schools in Michigan as well as New Mexico. Teach ALL styles of music, while also teaching how to read and count notations. Lessons being taught by world touring musician still on rise. Learn your favorite songs while also seeing (reading) what you are playing. Teach full set as well as snare, and even marching band percussion like quads/quints. I believe music theory is very important to becoming a better musician and that it definitely separates the amazing from the mediocre.

About Demarcus

I am a world touring musician with 30 years of drums/percussion experience. I have performed on some of the biggest stages in the this country as well as others. I have experience working with all ages, gender, and levels of students. For many years I have taught students varying from the ages

Demarcus does an excellent job identifying your style and customizing your lesson plan to fortify the skills you need. He'll break the music down for you to learn at your speed. Doesn't matter what your style is. He's got you covered. He'll get your playing to the next level if you'll put in the practice time.
