Teaching since:

I am a fifth year music education at Portland State University. I love teaching and can't think of doing anything else in life. I've been a percussionist for over a decade and have no intentions of stopping anytime soon. I've played in the various ensembles here at PSU as well as many groups outside the university, operas, symphonies, and ballets. I've also written and arranged music for marching ensembles, percussion ensembles, and small orchestras. I'm a huge super hero fan and enjoy movies, TV, and video games. I never mind talking about movies and whatnot as long as work is getting done. I want to be the cool and fun teacher, but my first priority is to teach just as your priority is to learn. I also hope to get students of all types, especially those with any physical or mental disability as I believe all students should get an equal opportunity to learn. I have a little brother with Cerebral Palsy and understand the struggle when finding things for him to enjoy and be included.
