I graduated from Greencastle-Antrim School District in 2013 and am currently a junior at Shepherd University where I am a music education major, k-adult with an emphasis in percussion. I am a well-rounded percussionist but much of my emphasis is in marimba performance. During my time at Shepherd I have had the pleasure of working with amazing percussion instructors, such as Dr.
During the course of these music lessons, I train students to become technically proficient with their instrument, expand their knowledge of music through music theory, history, and ear training, and help develop their musicality through etudes, chamber music, and solos to reach their highest potential.
I'll usually focus on beginners, and my experience working with elementary-aged students has made me very confident at introducing students to brand-new material. However, I'm happy to take on students of any age and skill level! Whether you're rehearsing an intricate xylophone solo for an audition, or just learning to hold your sticks, I'll be there to help.
My basic methodology is to teach music through performance. There will always be scales and exercises to work on, but making good use of etudes and musical excerpts makes it more fun. There are numerous method books for the various percussion instruments that are laid out very well and keep it interesting.
I will teach the student technique and give them different warm ups and pieces to practice. I will also help them find the right mallets and style for their needs.
I base my lessons on personal growth and FUN! While it does take the basics to learn and grow, I believe music should ultimately be fun. So while exercises will be a part of the lessons we will also take time to learn songs you want to learn so I can help break down songs so you learn thing you want to learn.
My goal as a teacher is to share the skills necessary to allow you to teach yourself for a lifetime.
I studied Percussion at the University of Colorado at Boulder. I played in jazz combos, percussion ensembles, orchestras, as well as playing solo recitals on marimba, timpani, and jazz vibraphone, as well as competing in Concerto competitions. I toured worldwide on Cruise ships, playing in cover bands, jazz bands, behind singers and dancers in production shows and world-renowned guest soloists.
If the student is new to percussion, they will be learning the basics. If they have prior experience, we will take that experience and experience and expand on it. I feel that each student is different so different techniques will be used for each student.
I like to start easy with the basics, e.g. how to hold a mallet, how to make a full stroke, where to hit the bar. then I can get into how to read music and basic two mallet exercises. Than I can get into more advanced stuff, like playing solos, and four mallet technique.
I base my methodology on instruction that I was given from a variety of instructors from University of Wisconsin Milwaukee as well as the Conservatory of Music. The content of my lessons contain technique, music theory, snare drum instruction and reading music transcriptions,and coordination exercises.
I expect students to practice in between lessons, and to be honest if something is too hard. I have taught all standards in the past and prefer one to one lessons, to make sure you get the attention you need.
Music is a beautiful combination of the two hemispheres of the brain (I know this isn't real science but take it for metaphor's sake). There is math and perfection of rhythms and harmonies within music, but these patterns mean very little without the creativity of the mind inspiring it to move in certain ways.
I studied the Bachelor's in percussion in the Superior School of Music. I give fun classes for children and adults who want to learn to play the songs they like best or want to prepare their audition to enter a conservatory. I am very patient with beginners and young children.
I am a Stay-at-home Dad that is a freelance percussionist. I have played around the world in all kinds of music styles and love to teach.
I am an experienced teacher and I tailor lessons to suit individual needs. I am happy to teach pupils from the age of five upwards, and any ability level from complete beginner to experienced professionals looking to learn specific skills.
I'm a drum kit, percussion and tuned percussion teacher with 25 years experience in both private and state education. I have also worked as a peripatetic teacher for the local authority. I'm use to a wide age range (5-65 years), varied abilities and am adaptable to personal areas of study and styles of music.
I primarily teach private lessons, but am open to a group setting. My lessons are very tailored to an individual's needs: once I've assessed someone's playing I have a very good idea of what they need to do to become a well-rounded player.
The methodology is based on the use of the main books and studies of technique, phrasing and coordination of the great American teachers such as C.Wilcoxon, G.Chaffee, T.Reed, A.Dawson, etc ... Generally alongside the study of the battery that of the classical drum technique and the applied rhythmic solfeggio, I try to propose to the student a study method suited to his needs and aspirations.
Different subjects and different needs will require different methods, from individual weekly on the instrument lesson, to a tailor made coaching plan to guide you in your musical project, an improvisation group class, or a full rehearsal coaching for a band who wants to bring their ensemble playing and compositions to the next level.

A broad pedagogical range in the areas of symphonic, Latin and multi-percussion percussion.
