DUE TO SHELTER IN PLACE RESTRICTIONS, ALL INSTRUCTION IS CURRENTLY HELD ONLINE VIA ZOOM FROM In person teaching
In person teaching is returning!
Starting June 16 2021, I am welcoming fully vaccinated students back to my studio!
I will continue distance learning on Zoom for those who prefer.
Each meeting has an individual password protected Zoom link, and I work with each student to optimize the audio and visual experience.
I HAVE BEEN SUCCESSFULLY TEACHING MY PRIVATE STUDENTS THIS WAY SINCE MARCH, AS WELL AS AT CSU EAST BAY (CLASS AND INDIVIDUAL INSTRUCTION), CHABOT COLLEGE (CLASS AND INDIVIDUAL INSTRUCTION) AND AS PERCUSSION DIRECTOR OF THE CALIFORNIA YOUTH SYMPHONY (MASTER CLASSES, AUDITIONS, AND COACHING).
EACH MEETING HAS AN INDIVIDUAL PASSWORD PROTECTED ZOOM LINK, AND I WORK WITH EACH STUDENT TO OPTIMIZE THE AUDIO AND VISUAL EXPERIENCE.
I offer private instruction on drum set, mallet instruments, timpani, snare drum, hand drums, and all accessories.
My studio has two drumsets, marimba, vibraphone, four timpani, snare pads, and all standard percussion instruments, as well as recording and playback equipment, so you can play along with tracks, record yourself, and listen back!
All lessons are tailored to the students needs, for enjoyable, efficient and thorough progress.
Whether your goal is to make first chair in the school band, get into a top music school, or just to be able to jam and have fun with friends, I've helped others to do that, and we can do it too!
