Hi there! My name is Reece. I have been playing drums and swimming through the waves of music for 22 years now! I currently work a dream job at a recording studio and work as an instructor at this wonderful organization.
I live a purely creative world and try to dive in to a pool of music daily. What you could expect from my sessions is learning to not only count out the beats, but to really be able to flow and adapt to the art of the music. I cater to all learning styles, and would love to unlock your specific kind. I am so excited to meet and create music with you!

First off, Reece made me feel super comfortable. I had a lot of fears going in and she made them all go away. She is very encouraging so I never felt pressured and always had fun. She made a customized lesson for my particular learning style (ADD af.) each time that depended on how I did the previous time. Can't wait for more. Feels good to feel myself get better and better!!

Reece is more than just an excellent drummer and instructor. She is an amazing human being. I've worked with her for years on musical collaborations and she has a magical way of communicating about an art (music) that can be difficult to put into words. She is extremely humble and makes you feel comfortable in any situation. Of any musician that I know, hands down, I would choose as a percussion instructor. I CAN NOT RECOMMEND HER ENOUGH!!!

Reece was excellent! She had prepared for my child, who is sensitive, then was open to follow his lead during the lesson. He connected with her quickly and they were able to accomplish a great deal together in just the first lesson. Thank you! We are already looking forward to our next one.

My daughter recently developed an interest in playing the drums. I was a little apprehensive at first, due to her young age and her vibrant personality, and felt bad for whomever would have to teach her. Without a doubt it would require a lot of patience and ability. Well, thanks to Reece, my daughter is now excelling and more and more excited about this new-found talent! Thank you Reece for your expertise and teaching ability!

Reece not only taught me how to play drums, she taught me how to feel the music and lose myself within it. I find myself hearing music everywhere I go now. It's amazing. She's amazing.
