Professional percussionist, retired professor offering snare/drum set/marimba/music reading lessons. Northwest Indiana - Chicago area.


Due to my vast experience my approach changes with each individual student or class. Through demonstration and individual as well as class assignments; short term and long term goals are set. I believe that tutors need to make sure that the student totally understands assignments as well as new techniques.


College educated (Master of Music Degree) retired music professor with forty years experience. I've taught hundreds of students that have gone on to be professional musicians. My studio is open to all levels of ability on all aspects of percussion. Drum set, marimba, snare drum, rhythmic sight reading and more!


Rate for online lessons : $55/h


$55.00 for a one forty five minute lesson. $35.00 for a half hour lesson.
