Bo Wade was my first percussion teacher over 10 years ago. A friend I played guitar with invited me to a Samba dance class set to live percussion. Bo was in charge of the percussion section, orchestrating both the drummers and dancers from behind his drum set. Bo is an elite musician and instructor with a broad understanding of percussion styles from around the globe. Whatever your experience level, focus, or preference of music, Bo will add value to your practice techniques and performance approach. I highly recommend taking lessons and developing a relationship with Bo.

Bo was great with teaching our son rudiments, grooves, Latin Jazz beats and much more. He also taught our son how to play live in a large theater setting for musicals. He was always organized and on time, which we appreciated. Jackson learned a lot from Bo and is now in his 3rd year at Juilliard Pre-College for percussion in NYC. Thanks so much, Bo! We'd do it again in a heartbeat.
