Over 30 years of helping others learn the skill of drumming!
I have been teaching and performing percussion professionally for 30 years. I have had the privilege and honor of performing as a military musician while traveling around the world Many of my students have gone on to pursue college degrees in music education and have become educators themselves. Learning percussion should be a joyful experience and one that will be a positive change in your life. I have taught percussion at the college and high school levels. I specialize in rudimental and concert snare drum, mallet keyboards, drum set and timpani. Whether you are auditioning for a college scholarship, a high school all-state band position, or simply trying to sharpen your skills....I'm your teacher. I frequently sit on judging panels to determine all-state members for percussion. I currently teach at a high school and junior high where I start beginning percussionist on snare drum and mallets. At the high school level, I help create championship drum lines, indoor percussion lines, and great overall percussionists. Contact me and lets starting making a plan to get you to the next level.
