Welcome to my page! My name is Patrick McGinty, and I'm originally from Charlotte, North Carolina. I've been a percussionist and a music educator since 2002 and can't wait to help you meet your goals! I am currently taking new students at my recently redesigned home studio in the following areas:

Drum Set (Rock, Jazz, Blues, Latin)
Concert Percussion (Snare, Mallets)
Marching Percussion (Snare, Tenors, Bass)
Latin and Brazilian Percussion

A bit about me: I have worked with school band programs all of my life (my first job being the month after I graduated high school), being a marching and concert percussion instructor, and an arranger/composer. After receiving my Bachelors of Music in Music Education, I have worked in 4 different schools of varying age levels (K-12). As a performer, I've worked with many groups including but not limited to orchestras, major country music artists, salsa bands and others.

I hope to see you soon!
