Teaching since:
June 2016

I'm Wesley A. I have been drumming and playing percussion for about 14 years. I am 26 years old. I recently graduated with a B.A in Music from North Greenville University near Greenville, SC under the tutelage of Dr. Chris Davis, President of the SC Chapter of PAS (Percussion Arts Society). I am laid back as a teacher and I will try to make the experience fun for anyone.

Wes will be a great instructor in percussion. He has an even temperament, great skills, and relates well to all age groups. He has advanced training in all percussion instruments and a great love and respect for music. I expect that he will be a great teacher.
