Teaching

In addition to being an accomplished concert percussionist, I also offer classes.

  • Orchestral Percussion
  • Timpani
  • Drum Set
  • Marimba
  • Vibraphone
  • Steel Drums

I always recommend that the student becomes proficient on the three main areas of percussion (snare drum, timpani and mallets). Topics to be covered include:

  • Reading
  • Improvisation
  • Ensemble Playing
  • Sight Reading
  • Music Theory
  • Ability to follow conductor and/or play with a click track

*College credit available thru Pima Community College.

My former students have gone on to graduate from schools such as:

  • Eastman School Of Music
  • The New England Conservatory
  • Peabody Conservatory
  • Berklee College of Music
  • University of North Texas
  • University of Arizona
  • Arizona State University
  • The Musicians Institute of Technology

There are different plans of study. Please email me to discuss rates and your particular situation.
