Percussion fits well into any style of music and is a great way to have fun with other musicians. I teach cajon, congas, djembe, bongo, timbales, frame drum, and much more to students of all experience levels. I have traveled extensively to learn percussion in Africa and Latin America, and was able to perform and record with my teachers there. I can teach you how to get great sounds out of almost any object - that's what a percussionist does! In addition to world percussion, I have lots of experience in classical percussion for orchestra and band, and in mallet percussion. I performed orchestral and contemporary classical music on marimba, xylophone, vibraphone, and glockenspiel during my undergraduate degree, and studied Jazz vibraphone with Stefon Harris during my Masters degree. I would love to share any of this information with you, and we will play percussion together in the lessons. We can record loops and get creative to make sure we are always making real music. Ask me
Are you in school band in the percussion section? If you'd like to get up to speed on those instruments or if you are gearing up and wish to study to become a member of an orchestra, I can help you understand the process to reach a high degree of technical proficiency. I am well versed in including timpani, mallets, snare drum, cymbals and all instruments in the array of orchestral percussion.

I customize each students lesson to their individual needs and the styles of drumming they enjoy. Expect to have a lot of fun on your path of drumming!
The wonderfully fun thing about percussion is "percussion" means so many things! Percussion is anything you strike! I'm thrilled to work with younger students on rhythm with whatever percussion instrument (drum) they have at home, or teach snare drum and glockenspiel for more serious or older students.
