I have 17 years experience performing drum set, hand drums, mallets and many other percussion instruments. I received a Bachelor's in Music for Percussion Performance and Music Education from the Sacramento State School of Music and I received my Master's in Music for Percussion Performance from the University of Nevada, Reno. I have experience teaching in public schools (high school and middle school levels), the collegiate level, music camps, and I have maintained a private studio for over two years. I have a method of teaching based on what you want to learn while also going over technique, posture, musicianship and music theory. My teaching is based entirely on the student as many people have different ways of learning so I do my best to make myself clear. My goal is to make lessons fun and informative, so let's enjoy the journey of making music!

About Trevor H.

Hello! I am a freelance percussionist, educator and private teacher based in Sacramento, CA. I received my Bachelor's in Music in Music Education and Percussion Performance from the Sacramento State School of Music and my Master's Degree in Music from the University of Nevada, Reno.
I have been performing music since I was 8 years old and started on drums/percussion when I was 12. Over the past 17 years as a percussionist/drummer, I have performed in many settings and styles from classical, world music, jazz, musicals, contemporary, rock, folk, alternative and many others.
I began teaching music during my first year in college to a few high schools around the Sacramento area and have continued teaching ever since. Currently, I teach private lessons in percussion as well as assisting high school percussionists at three high schools.
As a percussionist, I am able to teach a wide variety of instruments from drum set, snare drum, certain hand drums (feel free to inquire), mallets and many others in the vast percussion family.
I have taught many ages and skill levels ranging from elementary school, high school, college students, and even those who have retired from the work force. One of my biggest passions in music has been to teach to those who are striving to learn music or want to develop their musicianship further. My curriculum is based on what you want to learn and we will study at your pace.

Trevor is excellent in teaching and performing on drums. He is extremely supportive and will help you work towards your musical goal. With his passion and ability to play both percussion and drums, I give Trevor beyond the 5 star ratings. It was a pleasure meeting Trevor at Cazadero Music Camp in 2018. He is a talented and inspiring music teacher!

My son, now in 8th grade, has been taking private lessons with Trevor for over 2 years now. We have had lessons both in person and on line. My son has grown & matured quite a bit working with Trevor and is currently 1st chair at his school. We highly recommend Trevor!

I've had the pleasure knowing Mr. Trevor Hall as a colleague for the past 7 years at Cazadero Music Camp. He serves as the percussion specialist on the music faculty. He is an outstanding teacher, is a wonderful musician on tuned and untuned percussion, and set drums. His ability to communicate with students is superlative, and he is an effective teacher with sound pedagogical skills. I have personally observed Trevor working with the percussion students each summer at Cazadero. It didn't matter if the student was a young beginner or an advanced high school percussionist. Trevor inspires all of his percussion students throughout the summer and school year. I highly recommend this music educator.

Trevor is a compassionate, enthusiastic, and highly qualified percussionist and educator. I look forward to our lessons because he is so kind, knowledgeable, and encouraging! He always leaves me inspired to improve on my instrument and achieve my goals. I would highly recommend him for percussion lessons!

Trevor is really kind and encouraging. He knows how to focus in on specific skills and help to improve technique, but he does it in a way that is compassionate and helpful. I also love that he is a well-rounded percussionist, so if I need help on mallet stuff or other percussion for my school band he’s really knowledgeable and can help on anything. It’s really hard to find teachers that have lots of experience on variety of percussion, not just kit, so Trevor is truly a gem!
