Percussion lessons are pure fun, for people of any age! You will learn to keep a beat, understand rhythm, and use good hand technique! I will encourage you to find a regular drum circle, or other musicians to play with, too! If you don't have much of a background in listening to various types of percussion, I will introduce you to to all kinds of awesome percussion-based music from around the world! I play and teach a variety of percussion instruments, including hand drums (congas, tubano, djembe, bongos), xylophone and other toned percussion, shaker-type instruments, tambourine, guiro, etc. I also teach beginner-level drum kit, and snare drum for marching band, as well as reading music notation. Percussion instruments are a great way to introduce very young children to playing music. In the past, I taught music classes for toddlers and preschoolers, with an emphasis on percussion. I currently teach percussion and beginners drumming to teens and adults. I am a multi-instrumentalist, and also teach piano/keyboard, guitar, and a variety of other stringed instruments.

Learn music from an experienced teacher in a fun and positive environment! I have been teaching drumset/percussion to students of all ages and levels for over 5 years. My students are commonly surprised to see how quickly they progress - often within the first couple of lessons, we are playing along to their favorite songs! My approach is very straightforward, fun, and can be applied to whichever style(s) the student is interested in. Having studied with some of the top percussion educators from around the world at Berklee College of Music (including Grammy award winners Mark Walker and Terri Lyne Carrington), I use a culmination of methods along with my own personal experiences to help the student progress. The drumset student can expect to learn very quickly about the following topics, which can be tailored to their particular needs/goals: -Proper stick technique/control and posture -Rudimental studies -Drumset coordination and independence -Development of speed and efficiency of motion -Grooves and various styles of drumming -Reading music -Study of great drummers -Playing with other musicians
