I am now accepting students at my home and via online. I have 20 years experience teaching and over 30 years playing and performing (visit my website for full bio & credentials www.annamul.com). I specialize in coaching and mentoring kids and women. Drums are more than hitting things with sticks. They build confidence, social skills, focus and self esteem. I also find that aspects of drumming is meditative, something we could all use in our fast-paced, anxiety-driven society. Drums are one of the best tools you can use for stress relief! I want to see more women and young girls playing and expressing themselves thru the art of drumming. I'd like to be a part of changing how our culture views the divine feminine in music. I have a basement dedicated to music and lessons are taught at my two drum kits side-by-side for optimal learning. I create customized and fun learning experiences while sharing my passion of the drums. My musical passion comes thru in my ability to really reach the student thru a variety of techniques so that they fully understand the lesson, while having fun. My teaching approach adapts and changes based on the student's behavioral feedback.

After high school, Anna landed a gig with a Minneapolis-based corporate show band called The Castle Family. This band led by three brothers traveled the world playing private corporate events, Las Vegas and State Fairs. They featured vocals, horns, choreography and played a variety of medleys of 40’s, 50’s, 60’s, Motown, Dixieland, Country and show tunes. The show was sequenced and Anna played an electronic Roland kit. Leader Jack Castle said “The thing about Anna that you have to recognize and I think the thing that most people recognize when they actually see her play..…is the astounding presence that she has.”
