I can help students who are wanting to be in marching band and symphonic/orchestra. I have hand drums and various auxiliary percussion instruments, including tambourines, triangle, shakers, maracas, claves, a cabasa, etc. I also have a xylophone for students who want to learn mallet instruments, and I am well familiar with both the Burton and Stevens grips. I can help those who are wishing to compete in band contests, as well.

Award-Winning Teacher - Networked/played with various members of Heart & Bad Company & Former Queensryche. Learn Your Favorite Songs Quickly & Accurately. 2020 Update - I'm Pacific NW Guitarist for Rudy Parris from "NBC TV's The Voice!" Go Team Blake - Teaching Percussion Is My Specialty.. 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..

In lessons we'll train technique and theory right alongside the ear with the objective of being able to play from your authentic self. In addition I studied with the Jazz legend and esteemed educator Stefon Harris (currently leading the Manhatttan School of Music). We will use his innovative theory and ear training techniques to learn the most basic mechanics of music.
