I have maintained a private lessons studio for eight years, spanning a wide range of students and styles. I believe in the potential of every student, especially when fostered by a personal and holistic approach to music lessons. I take great joy in teaching, music making and sharing stories of inspiration with students.


I am available and qualified to teach any level of percussionist from the first-day beginner to the progressing university student. While I follow a particular curriculum for ensured skills development, focus areas can include snare drum (concert and rudimental), mallet percussion (marimba, xylophone, vibraphone, bells), orchestral percussion (bass drum, cymbals, tambourine, triangle, castanets, etc.), drumset (jazz, rock, pop, etc.), timpani, marching percussion, hand percussion, and music theory. I also offer lessons in voice, guitar and beginning piano. Many of my students have consistently received superior ratings at regional and state contests, won chairs in district and state bands, and pursued careers as music performers and teachers.
