Overview

Blake is a young up-and-coming performer and instructor. He was fortunate enough to attend McNally Smith College of Music, where he was awarded the Honors Scholarship for Excellence in Percussion, an award that's offered to incoming Percussion Performance Majors. During his time at McNally Smith, he studied with many great instructors from the twin cities: Gordy Knudtson, David Schmalenberger, David Stanoch, JT Bates, Kevin Washington, Marv Dahlgren, and Paul Stueber. He has also studied with nationally acclaimed drummers: Mike Clark (Herbie Hancock's Headhunters), Robert 'Sput' Searight (Snarky Puppy), JP Bouvet and Chris Wabich. Being under the instruction of so many different drummers, Blake quickly became a very versatile musician. In addition to teaching privately, Blake teaches at School of Rock, Soundcheck Music School and Schuster's Music.

SoundCheck believes in the power of music, and the seemingly innate ability to understand it. We are known for a premier education that not only teaches our students the importance of applying what they are learning into their own musical practice, but also provides an opportunity to do so in a variety of educational settings. Through our workshops, group classes, individual instruction, and performance programs we help our students develop and grow both musically and personally, while creating an atmosphere that prepares them for the choices that come with college, careers, and life.

About six months ago, I decided to take lessons again after not playing seriously for about twenty years. It has been a wonderful experience. I look forward to meeting with Blake every week because:

I know I'm making a lot of progress
He makes it both fun and educational
He takes special effort to tailor the lessons to what I want to concentrate on but also encourages me to try new material or practice old material in a new way.
You can tell he loves to share his love of music and is a natural teacher.

Basically I couldn't be happier with my experience and would recommend Blake to anyone taking lessons.

Blake is a talented instructor, he excels in tailoring the instruction plan to the students goals, and definitely keeps it fun. As an adult trying to learn drums with zero musical instrument background, after just 5 sessions with Blake I feel I have made notable progress. I really recommend him!
