All my life, I've been a drummer. While I love playing a kit, the djembe is my favorite drum. It's portable, and as easy as popping it in the car to head out to a gig, a jam or a bon fire. They are inexpensive compared to a kit. Best of all, I can show you how to add brushes to your repertoire that will turn a djembe into a snare drum sound; making you a really versatile drummer.

Teaching since:
February 1999

I have been teaching strings, piano, harp and drums since 1999. Many of my students have studied with me for years and developed a lifelong love of music. Some have gone on to be professionals.

I have been tutoring music therapy students as well as teaching music composition for seven years.

I strive to help students achieve their musical goals however I can, but I do not tolerate laziness or half-hearted attempts.

Music can be a tool and thus, summers are dedicated to fun, composition and learning to record.

So far Michele is a talented instructor. She is a down to earth person and knew my strengths and weakness right away. I am looking forward to my next class with her.
