For the past 9 years, I have been a school counselor in Charles County Public schools and I have been a percussionist for the past 22 years. I have performed in symphonies, rock bands, musicals, jazz bands, marching bands, drum lines, and I am currently playing as a snare drummer in the City of Alexandria Pipes and Drums band. I have a great understanding of percussion and it's important role in music. I enjoy working with kids and students of all ages and love to connect drumming with their goals and dreams. Each student I work with sets their own personal goals and we work hard to achieve them together. I look forward to working with you and discovering the world of rhythm!
