Percussion

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
Hello! My name is Dan, and I've been working in the field of music for a number of years.  After graduating from the Berklee College of Music, I have worked in Boston and around the United States and Canada as a performer in the percussive arts.

My curriculum revolves entirely around the student. It is important to explore all areas of technique, style, grove, and chops. And of course I will always introduce these ideas to my students, but the most important thing is that we create art. And in order to do this, I strive to find my students true voice in his or her playing, and implement new ideas in and around it.

Music has been an enormous part of my life, and I wish to share both my knowledge and experiences with others. My mission is to give my students the same enjoyment that I have received from playing music.

I've been working in the field of music for a number of years. After graduating from the Berklee College of Music, I have worked in Boston and around the United States and Canada as a performer in the percussive arts.

I focus my teaching on what the student wants to learn. Of course we will go over technique, grove, chops and much more, but the most important thing is that I figure out how all that fits into my students sound.

Music has been an enormous part of my life, and I wish to share both my knowledge and experiences with others. My mission is to give my students the same enjoyment that I have received from playing music.
