Teaching since:
2014

I've been involved in music since fifth grade loved it since! As a performer, I was heavily involved in my high school's music program being involved in: the advanced jazz band (drum set), advanced choir (baritone), musical pit (drum set/auxiliary percussion), show band (vibraphone/tenor drums), and undefeated indoor percussion (drum set/tenor drums). I've also been offered spots to play the vibraphone with the world-class Seattle Cascades Drum Corps and tenor drums with the world-class Oregon Crusaders Indoor. Currently, I perform with the Cal Poly drumline. As a performer, audiences love my energy and expressiveness.

As a teacher, students love my laid-back nature and patience to create a stress-free learning environment. I customize my lessons to fit individual students' goals and experience. I love teaching because I get to meet so many different people with varying backgrounds, and I would love to meet you too!

I was the primary percussion instructor in a parade style drumline. I taught the basics of marching and playing, teaching concepts such as technique and how to read music.

I taught both marching percussion and auxiliary percussion in the front ensemble. I was responsible for teaching students technique regarding both marching and playing. I focused on tenor drums and was responsible for writing and editing part of the tenor drum parts. I was also in charge of instrument maintenance/upkeep, tuning all the drums.

Very knowledgeable and supportive. Matches the student's pace and teaches new concepts in an intuitive way, I would recommend him to musicians of all ages.
