With all students, I personalize the lessons to meet their goals on their specific instrument. I teach a variety of instruments (marching percussion, drum set, orchestral percussion) with high variations in skill levels (percussion beginners to college drumline players). I will use both repertoire I compose and outside sources throughout the study in 45-minute lessons.
Students enjoy my laid-back nature and stress-free environment. Alongside this, I push students to be their best selves. I constantly ask them questions on their performances and remind them to try their hardest and always be striving to improve.
I've been involved in music since fifth grade loved it since! As a performer, I was heavily involved in my high school's music program being involved in: the advanced jazz band (drum set), advanced choir (baritone), musical pit (drum set/auxiliary percussion), show band (vibraphone/tenor drums), and undefeated indoor percussion (drum set/tenor drums). I was also offered spots to play the vibraphone with the world-class Seattle Cascades Drum Corps and tenor drums with the world-class Oregon Crusaders Indoor. In college, I've performed with my school's drumline, percussion ensemble, orchestra, wind ensemble, and Arab music ensemble. I currently study music education at Cal Poly, Pomona. As a performer, audiences love my energy and expressiveness.
I currently teach at Kamiak High School and Harbour Pointe Middle School. At Kamiak, I specialize in teaching the battery percussion and help with the front ensemble. At Harbour Pointe, I co-manage the battery. I organize rehearsals while teaching the music, the marching drill, and technique along the way.
As a teacher, students love my laid-back nature and patience to create a stress-free learning environment. I customize my lessons to fit individual students' goals and experience. I love teaching because I get to meet so many different people with varying backgrounds, and I would love to meet you too!
I require students to notify me greater than 24 hours before a scheduled lesson for a cancellation. If not, I will try to reschedule but may ask for payment without a lesson.
