I’ve been teaching drum set, concert, and marching percussion since 2009, and playing nonstop for over 20 years. 

I’m musically hyperactive, which has led me to perform with marimba orchestras; pit orchestras; an NFL drum line; and funk, worship, Americana, Irish and cover bands, both live and in the studio. My recording credits include Big Hoax, a group that received honorable mention in NPR’s 2015 Tiny Desk Concert series. I’ve written and choreographed an indoor drumline show, taught in schools and stores, and most recently led a bucket band for BSO OrchKids.

I have a B.A. in Percussion Performance from Marietta College, but my approach to teaching is more organic, less academic. Currently, I’m also a private instructor for St. Paul’s School.

I teach one-on-one lessons out of my studio in historic Dickeyville. Learn more about lessons »
