Hello, my name is Sam! I am a musician from Wisconsin. I received my Bachelor of Fine Arts in Percussion Performance from University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee in 2016. I am currently working towards a Masters Degree at San Diego State University where I serve as a Graduate Assistant. I conduct and artistically direct the SDSU Percussion Ensemble!

I began playing music as a trombonist. Eventually Rock n' Roll drew me into playing electric guitar. But soon afterwards I found the Drum Set and I knew I had found my passion! I have coached and taught various high school ensembles, honor bands, summer bands and private lessons.

I teach Drum Set, Marimba, Snare Drum, Timpani and Piano.

My teaching style is laid back but fun. I like to work from workbooks and sheet music to give a wide understanding of technique and repertoire. The primary focus of my lessons is to make the experience as exciting and fun as possible!
