Peter is a great teacher. He finds what your level is and goes from there. Peter finds what kind of style of learning best fits you.
For me, when Peter is playing the drums or Piano after he has given me the structures/scales makes it very easy to learn. Very patient and encouraging. Ask yourself- Why aren’t YOU taking lessons with Peter?

Perfect. He matched his lesson beautifully with the music I like and how I am likely to learn quickly. Could not ask for better.

Playing the djembe is a great way to enter into the percussion world. There are many playing opportunities (if you're willing to look) to play with an ensemble such as a church band or jamming with friends. Everyone needs a good djembe player! In djembe lessons my goal is to teach you basic techniques, music theory, and rhythms to get you comfortable enough to use your djembe skills to perform confidently with a musical group.

I have been teaching for about 8 years with students ranging from beginner to advanced. All ages are welcome! I also welcome all different styles of music from rock, to jazz, and even classical. Each lesson is catered specifically to the student. I want each student to be able to reach their own specific goals, while having the time of their life!

Sean has been teaching my 10-year old son percussion for almost two years. Before covid, my son had lessons in-person. Since covid, my son has been doing lessons online. Sean has done an amazing job teaching my son in-person and online.

Sean really knows percussion. I've witnessed this both during lessons and when my family watched him perform with the Lone Tree Symphony. Sean is wonderful with kids. Although my son has attention issues, Sean is extremely patient, and he is able to efficiently redirect and focus my son. With Sean, music lessons are enjoyable. He has taken the time to get to know my son and how my son learns. I feel like the lessons are tailored extremely well for my child's abilities. Best of all, Sean is just a wonderful person. He's easy to talk to and has a great sense of humor. My son looks forward to his lessons with Sean each week. You won't find a better percussion instructor!

"I started lessons with Kevin knowing nothing about playing the Djembe. He made broke down the fundamentals and made it easy to learn the basics and then build from them. He gives lots of great advice which helped me get engaged in a local women's drumming group. I credit Kevin's great lessons for getting advanced in that group (Women's Drumming Center/Minneapolis) to the more experienced drum circle. I would recommend Kevin to anyone who wants to take up playing drums of any kind."
