I want to help you be the best percussionist you can be. With percussion, there are so many different instruments to play but what ties it all together is the technique you use to play the instruments.

Here’s my secret! To get the best, most resonant sound out of any instrument I strike. That’s it.

How you do that is dependent on the instrument, the mallet choice, the striking area, the touch, and many other factors. I want to help you with these so you can progress faster, learn how to think about these choices quicker and easier, so you can make BETTER music FASTER!

About Kevin S.

Hi there! I've been drumming for 14 years and teaching for 6 years! I've taught elementary students through college age and beyond. I love seeing my students grow and learn and pursue music from a place of interest, passion, and enjoyment!

Music has given me so many opportunities like traveling across the country for 3 months at a time, traveling to China with a professional orchestra, and performing more shows than I can count. I've recorded on multiple albums and have received scholarships through music. I've met the most amazing people and had incredible experiences thanks to music.

I want you to have your own experiences with music and I would like to help you get there. Whether it's drums, percussion, piano, guitar, or anything else, I want to teach you. I start with strong fundamentals to help you understand not just your instrument, but all of music. This way, you can play any instrument with a bit of practice.

I am here for you, whether you want to learn music as a fun hobby or make it your life. I am here to help you in your journey with music and help guide you to your goals.

I've been teaching percussion for this after school, elementary program for 4 years now and I'm currently the assistant director, helping run the program with more than just percussion but logistics and answering any questions parents or students have and stepping in with conducting and running rehearsals when needed.

I teach all of the percussionists in the marching band. I write the music that they play for the halftime show, I teach the students their parts with the help of my staff, I make sure the equipment is well maintained and order any parts/pieces/equipment that is needed if we do not have it/if it's broken.
