In our percussion class we will cover music theory, counting rhythms and discover a variety of percussion. The majority of this lesson will revolve around the Cajon, Shaker, Tamborine, and using brushes and snare technique and will explore african drums as well!

Bring your hacky sack and get ready for the drum circle. This class is perfect for groups and couples. Feel free to use the "ask a question" feature if you have any questions about this class or it's outline!

About Rachel

I started my musical path in a Ballet Studio. I fell in love with the crackle of the vinyl record playing as I learned to listen and dance with the rhythm. I started playing the guitar when I was in elementary and took classical lessons until I was a teenager. I really enjoy the art of practice

I am a husband, father, biocellular chemist, musician/recording artist, teacher, and performer in various genre. Piano was my first learned instrument (~30 years playing experience). Teaching music supplements all that is natural, perfect and me. I look forward to helping students learn technique and build confidence for when they may decide to perform or produce new music.

My standard teaching session aims directly at the common essentials of music and provides a combination of 1) chord and scale training, 2) an emphasis on contrasting rhythms and dynamics that give rise to genre and most common-day song structure, and 3) teaching students to play new songs (the student can request songs they would like to learn; I have demo materials and recommendations to assist). Using this trifecta approach, I have successfully taught learners with a broad variance of prior knowledge and aspiration to accomplish their goals. Together, my methods ensure that each student receives translatable

"I hired Matt to specifically help me prepare for the Quantitative section of the GMAT. We met online for several 2 hour tutoring sessions over the course of a month. Matt was very understanding of my busy work schedule and worked our appointments around this. During our tutoring sessions, Matt did a great job of explaining and helping me solve GMAT exam practice problems. He is very friendly and laid back, while also being an utmost professional. I highly recommend him for any of your graduate school level exam preparations."
