Take drum lessons with me! 

 

I offer drum lessons in person and via Skype to all skill levels and ages in my studio.

 
 

 

Accessibility to music education, and in turn music creation, amplifies voices and experiences, builds a supportive community, and supports development of key life skills. I fundamentally believes that art is an empathy machine and that the powerful benefits of music creation can, and do, make better happen. 

As a dedicated teaching artist, I seek to bring a passion and love for music to my students through the music they enjoy. Music is not a one sided conversation; therefore music education also shouldn't be. Through my studies with world renowned performers and educators and my experiences as a performer and session musician, I draw from a vast tool kit and my own methodologies to create unique and individualized lessons for each student.
