I am pleased to offer private instruction in percussion, for the beginner, intermediate, and advanced player. I tailor instruction to the needs of each individual student, taking the time to find what works best. Instruction will include snare drum and mallets focusing on rhythm and pitch reading with attention to the proper technique of playing. Further study will include timpani, hand percussion, and drum set.
Research has indicated repeatedly that the study and daily practice of music has a dramatic impact on many areas of learning and growth, not to mention the intrinsic joy that it brings to one’s life. I hope that you will take advantage of this wonderful opportunity.
If you are interested or want more information please email or text from the information below.
I look forward to have the opportunity to work with you.
