10+ Years Experience
I am here to provide dynamic, flexible, and innovative music (percussion + band instruments) experiences at your school! Don't let any prices stop you! Reach out to me!
Percussion is usually the least known about of the instrument families, among educators. My goal is to bridge that gap and provide flexible, high quality percussion events moving flexibly from Clinic to Recital to Masterclass depending on your needs! Likewise, as a band director, I have expert knowledge in all areas band: woodwind instruments, brass instruments, running sectionals, etc.
I can facilitate flexible 1-1.5 hour, or half/whole day sessions (depending on your needs) that can include any combination of:
1. World Rhythms + Improv!
2. Rhythmic Sensitivity
3. Contemporary Solo Percussion Recitals
4. Classical Percussion Masterclass
5. Beat Boxing
6. Music Technology
7. Full band rehearsals/listening + feedback
8. Brass/Woodwind sectionals
9. Brass/Woodwind individual lessons
10. University Music School Admissions
11. Solo and Ensemble coaching
12. Convention style percussion education presentations for educators
13. Beginning wind players
14. Instrument petting zoo
Give your percussionists, or band musicians some TLC! Are your students doing everything correctly? Do your rehearsals focus more on the winds? Do your percussionists get special attention?
Over the past 10 years I've worked as a Teaching Artist with Vic Firth, an international percussion soloist, orchestral percussionist and timpanist, chamber musician, clinician, arranger and adjudicator. I have performed countless clinics, masterclasses, convention style presentations and recitals to 1000s of students and educators.
