I am very comfortable with all major areas of Percussion: Drumset, Concert Percussion, Marching Percussion, Latin Percussion, Steel Pan, Percussion Ensemble. I work to find effective ways to have people discover their hidden talents and show them how to build skills to play at whatever level they want.

I am currently working on 4 new books in the Percussion area and about a dozen more for other instruments.I work with each student to find out what motivates them and how to set goals to reach whatever lev
el they seek. I have worked with almost every age possible and find it exciting to see people find out how great they are.

Kevin is a fantastic instructor!

I have been taking private lessons from Kevin for two years now as we'll as receiving instruction in Band for the last three years. Kevin not only is an incredible percussionist himself, but he has a knack for being able to convey ideas to students that they can understand. New and better approaches to teaching rhythm, personalized lesson planning to suit a student's needs, and a vast knowledge of music from years of professional experience are just a few things that Kevin brings to the table. If you're looking for a percussion instructor, I would highly recommend Kevin as your first choice!

Joe H.

Inver Grove Heights, MN

I've been playing drums for over 20 years. It's brought me all over the country playing for crowds big and small and made me a world champion in 2003.

I studied at the University of North Texas where percussion was my primary instrument. Whatever it is you need to learn, be it for drumset, marching band, concert band or otherwise I'm well versed and ready to teach.

About Joe

I began music in Winona, MN at age 9 with a pair of drumsticks and went on to become a world champion in 2003 with the Blue Stars drum and bugle corps. I do all things percussion and have been playing for 20 years but these days I do a lot more than just drums.

My time spent studying Music Education at the University of North Texas expanded my musical horizons adding piano and guitar among other tools of the trade. The majority of my students these days are piano students young and old but I love teaching a variety of lessons including guitar and ukelele.

I currently teach piano, drums,
and guitar at a local music store in the Twin Cities. I also teach the Hastings drumline in the summer and fall and the Red Wing indoor drumline in the winter time.

On a completely different note, I'm a veteran member of the Twin Cities Terrors all-star men's roller derby team. I travel across the country as Egon Strangler challenging teams on roller skates from Dallas to New York. You can find more info about when I'm skating next at tcterrors.com or just ask me about it. I love to talk about derby.

*** Lesson Details ***
We'll take a focused and fun look at the kind of music you want to play and make that an achievable reality. Whether we'll be playing Ben Folds, Bach, or Bruno we'll work together to find a direct path to making the music that you like.

My goal is to make your experience interesting and understandable. If I send you home with music you can understand that you enjoy playing then I know you'll practice and our time together will be successful. Everyone has that creative spark and I'm just here to help you shine some light on it.

*** Travel Equipment ***
An instrument they can practice on.

*** Specialties ***
I play and teach a method that customizes the experience for each student so they get the most out of their time on their instrument of choice. We can play any song in any genre and most importantly, have fun with it.

I've got two kids (ages 9 and 12) taking guitar and piano lessons with Joe for a couple years. He's been great! He's a gifted instructor who does a great job of meeting my kids at their level and tailoring the instruction style to their needs and personalities.

Joe is a great teacher. He motivates my son to the nth degree. Focuses on music my son is interested in while also expanding his horizons. Drills without discouraging. He is just awesome.

The Good, the Bad, & the Drummy

Joe is knowledgable in percussion and pretty flexible with instruction. He identifies strength areas and assigns appropriate work. He also showed me how to install drum heads and gave me some tricks on care and maintenance of my equipment. Of the three drum teachers I've had, I like Joe the best. I have been playing drums for 3 years and I am 12 years old.

Vocal lessons with Tom

Tom is a great teacher. He is very encouraging and gives great advice on how to improve. Without his encouragement I do not think I would have tried out for the community choir. I made it through the audition and am back singing with a great group of people.

Eric has done a wonderful job with my teenage son! By offering instruction that met him where he was at and building upon it, he has learned so much. Furthermore, Eric has inspired my son to play to guitar by choosing things to work on that excite him. With Eric, my son is not only developing his guitar skills and abilities, but Eric passion has increased my son's love of playing guitar.

Riley J.

Saint Paul, MN

About Riley

I'm currently a student of Music production at McNally Smith college of Music. I have been a drummer since I was 6 years old and an active musician since 14 years old. I'm very proficient in using Logic Pro music software, fairly proficient in Pro Tools, and I can navigate my way around almost any recording or live console. I'm currently writing and arranging for a ska/horn band, so I'm very knowledgeable about music theory. I started teaching privately during my junior year of highschool, and I'm good at teaching younger students. I prefer if any students have some knowledge of traditional mu
sic notation, but anything can be taught. I'm very excited and eager to start teaching so please don't hesitate to contact me if you're interested!
