Drummer / Percussionist + Educator / Performer



Interested in learning to play the drums? Then sign up for lessons with me today!

I understand that every student learns differently, and so every lesson is tailored to fit each students' unique learning style. Although you can't become a rock star overnight, I pride myself on giving fun and entertaining lessons, while teaching students everything they need to become a successful musician at any level.
All lessons and classes are taught at The Center of Music and Art, and are currently available Monday through Thursday between 10 A.M. and 8 P.M. Private lessons are charged by the 1/2 hour. Semi-private (2-student) lessons are available, upon my discretion.

Daytime spots have become quite popular with my homeschool students, and I'm glad to work with homeschool parents and groups to give your student(s) the highest quality music education.

Beginner through Advanced lessons are available for Drum Set, Snare Drum, Marching, and Concert Percussion. Beginner and Intermediate lessons are also available for Mallet Percussion and Hand Percussion. Beginner lessons are also available for Ukulele.
