Experience teacher of 13 years working from other music schools in Michigan as well as New Mexico. Teach ALL styles of music, while also teaching how to read and count notations. Lessons being taught by world touring musician still on rise. Learn your favorite songs while also seeing (reading) what you are playing. Teach full set as well as snare, and even marching band percussion like quads/quints. I believe music theory is very important to becoming a better musician and that it definitely separates the amazing from the mediocre.

About Demarcus S.

I am a world touring musician with 30 years of drums/percussion experience. I have performed on some of the biggest stages in the this country as well as others.

I have experience working with all ages, gender, and levels of students. For many years I have taught students varying from the ages of 7 years of age to 68 years with very amazing results from most.

I want to build people to be their best in music as well as in life. You will be better everyday you walk out from a lesson with me.

Demarcus does an excellent job identifying your style and customizing your lesson plan to fortify the skills you need. He'll break the music down for you to learn at your speed. Doesn't matter what your style is. He's got you covered. He'll get your playing to the next level if you'll put in the practice time.
