As a drumset player, I've studied with many of the best teachers alive, and can teach any style from jazz to hip-hop to punk and onward.

I have been playing drums and percussion for well over 30 years. I have played in countless bands and have been involved with many and varied musical projects. I am currently playing with The Inside Outlaws - a pop / country band in the greater Seattle area. My lessons focus on technique, rudiments, musicality, and fun. Playing drums or any musical instrument enriches your life, makes you smarter, and is a whole lot of fun. I also believe that part of learning to play an instrument, is also about learning to teach yourself - making it possible to develop in your own way as a musician.
Percussion performance and instruction has been my main focus for more than 5 years. I started playing the drums when I was ten, taking lessons at the local drum shop. Since then I've studied with musicians and professors at the top of their field, performed in stadiums, conventions and music festivals, and taught award-winning groups and motivated, talented individuals.
Percussion is a very multi-faceted instrument, and I have curriculum and methods to teach any instrument in the family. My general teaching philosophy is that the instruction should always be geared towards the student's goals.
Hey there, my name is Mason L and I'm a musician and educator based in Seattle, WA.
