Hey! My name is John Webber, known by most fellow drummers and students as JWebb. I have been teaching drumlnes and drum lessons since 2008. I have helped many students achieve their goals of marching their instrument of choice in competetive marching band, DCI, and WGI percussion sections. I also have training and performance experience with concert percussion, drum set, and mallet percussion. Let me help you realize your ambitions as a percussionist!

I am grateful to have had many influential past instructors, and am undoubtedly a product of their collective instruction. These include Brian Harris, Matt Ownby, Michael Mckenna, Jon Weber (MSU prof. of percussion), Lee Beddis, Zach Schlicher, Brennan Mcfarland, Ted Leith, Rob Ferguson, Andrew Markworth, and John Dorsey (EMU prof. of percussion)
