My name is Dorien Dotson. Percussionist, Drummer, Music Enthusiast.
I am gigging and traveling musician, who also teaches and advocates higher musical learning for ages and levels. My motive is to supply you with the MOST enjoyable, MOST energetic, MOST motivating, & MOST encouraging teaching experience ever. My students in previous years have been nominated for countless awards, and have gone on to pursue some form of musical career.
I’ve studied my craft in detail for years, and also have tried different methods of teaching throughout my career. My drive and willingness to extend my knowledge to you is what I live for. So lets get you signed up, and playing some drums!
I have, and currently, deliver methods to concert percussionist on how to prep before concerts, etiquette, performing aspects, and technique flaws that may be present in students.
Dorien’s Percussion Camp, is an event I surfaced to give students a more detailed knowledge of performance etiquette, techniques, and fundamental playing.
As a contracting musician I have played and performed for hundreds of touring groups and professionals. Alongside teaching, playing has been one of the main contributions to gaining notoriety in my career.
As a Drumline Marching Tech, I spent a few weeks with motivated students to sharpen on-field routines, playing, and delivering different methods of better marching, and form.
