Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
I am thrilled to hear that you or your kid is ready to start taking drum lessons! I have been teaching drum set and percussion for eleven years, and last year finished my master's in percussion performance at CU, after a music education degree in Michigan.

I start students off with "repeat after me" style exercises to develop technique, coordination, and musical tone on the instruments. Then, we can dig into playing the music (s)he loves! I'm always curious to hear if there is a certain band or drummer my student admires?

Hey drummers!

I am a working drummer and percussionist in all major styles, from blues, funk, and jazz to classical and marching band.

In my off time, I enjoy playing in the mountains with my girlfriend and our cat.
