I'm a professional drummer, percussionist, educator, composer, and multimedia artist. I was a principal performer in the cast of the NYC Broadway show STOMP. As a freelance drummer I've also worked with various recording artists and production outfits such as; Miki Howard, Street Drum Corps, and Royal Caribbean Productions. As an educator I've taught both drum set and hand percussion to children and adults at the School of Rock franchise and at my private studio. My approach to teaching is to first assess my students current interests and abilities and then design a personalized curriculum for them which will combine both music theory and notation reading with play by ear skills. The main focus is help students reach their goals while also developing into a well rounded musician. I'm comfortable with students of any age and with any special needs! At my studio I have an array of percussion including (drum sets, djembes, congas, bongos, Middle Eastern percussion, hand pan, Brazilian percussion, mallet percussion etc.) and should you decide to study online I have professional audio equipment to make your lessons as close to in person quality as possible! So what are you waiting for? Lets make your rhythmic dreams a reality!

Indigo is a wonderful teacher - talented, patient, and funny. I'm looking forward to more lessons.
I’ve been taking lessons with Indigo for quite awhile now and I am convinced that I would have dropped the drums if it was not for her. I have the terrible habit of picking up and dropping hobbies every few weeks. Learning with Indigo was been a very fun experience and managed to keep me interested in the art. Her lessons are light-hearted and casual while also being able to step away from them feeling like you learned something. It’s easy to feel stressed out when trying to learn something, but that has never happened while being instructed by Indigo. She’s a very funny (In the good way) and charismatic person to speak with and is always able to motivate you through the things you are struggling with. I am not exactly the brightest, but she has always been patient with me and took extra time to walk me through the things I have and am currently struggling with. I would highly recommend her as a teacher, even if you don’t know if the drums are an instrument you want to commit to. You might be surprised with the impact the right teacher can have.
Indigo is the best drum teacher you can ever find. She is great with kids. My 7 year old daughter loves her class. No pressure environment and kid learns fast. It's only been 2 months. My daughter already playing and hitting those drums like she had been playing for years. Thank you Indigo and I will be seeing you again this Thursday
