Overview

Hello, my name is Sam! 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!

Rock n' Roll drew me into playing drum set at a young age. I have coached and taught various high school ensembles, honor bands, summer bands and private lessons.

I teach Drum Set, Marimba, and Classical Percussion. Although these are separate, some of these aspects of percussion can be merged if you want. Just let me know when we have our first lesson!

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 to help others grow not only as musicians, but as people!
