I'm Wesley A. I have been drumming and playing percussion for about 17 years. I am 29 years old. I have 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.
Teaching since 2016
Teaches students 1 and up
This was our first online lesson experience. Wesley was very patient and willing to help us with any issues that came up. During the lesson, Wesley is always communicating and making sure the student is understanding what is being taught.
Thank you Wesley!! you did teach Jacque a lot.
You taught me a lot to work on in between classes and I can't wait for our next class
Wes is patient, kind, and a joy to be around. He is knowledgeable with drums, music theory, and all things percussion!
Wesley has a great deal of knowledge and performance experience in the area of drumset and percussion. He is reliable and a consummate professional.
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.Show More
