April 2004

With over 15 years of experience playing, performing and teaching percussion, I can offer valuable insight into many aspects of how to become a more well rounded and professional player. Having graduated from Millikin University in 2013 with a BA in Music Business and a Percussion Emphasis, I specialize in drum set and symphonic percussion styles, perfect for developing students looking to expand their percussive repertoire.

I have taught individual and group lessons for private students as well as school groups including classical and corps ensembles of all ages.

I take pride in my personable and professional demeanor and understand the challenges of developing talent at different skill levels. I work to provide individualized lesson plans for every student that suit their interests and ambitions.

Jeffery brings an awesome approach to teaching drums and percussion that can apply to any level of player. He's great at developing the fundamentals you need to improve as a player while keeping things interesting and fun! He's a true professional but keeps things laid back and comfortable for his students. You can tell he has a passion for what he's teaching and it really shows in the results you get from working with him. I'd recommend him to anyone!
