Musician specializing in percussion and contemporary music, teaching lessons online from Boston, MA.

Methodology

I teach students from beginner to college age. I have taken lessons and worked with many great teachers throughout the United States, and have studied a wide variety of topics including orchestral percussion, marching percussion, and contemporary music. As a teacher, the goals for my students are to improve their overall technique, teach them about musicality and what it means to be a musician, and to give them a wide knowledge of percussion and contemporary music as a whole.

Background

I’ve been teaching students for about 3 years, with a small break from teaching while I completed the first year of my master's degree at the Boston Conservatory at Berklee. I taught close to 10 students regularly, ranging from grades 6-12. My students have succeeded in many ways, ranging from qualifying for Texas UIL Region Band to being accepted to DePaul University in Chicago, IL to major in music performance.

Rates

Rate for online lessons : $30/h

Details

I charge $30 for hour-long lessons and $20 for 30-minute lessons.
