About Vaughn B.

As a 2014 Berklee College of Music graduate and someone who loves teaching, my goal is to help students find their own joy of playing the drum kit and other percussion instruments. My job is to teach students various styles of music; music theory; proper instrument technique; and to have fun! My instruction also includes techniques derived from Tai Chi to encourage relaxation and to prevent injuries.
