For over 10 years I was a professional musician playing in and around Springfield Missouri. I have played and help host both local and national clinics and workshops. During my school days I was in band and performed in the honor band as well.
When I was younger and in middle school, my band director had me teach the percussion section both the theory and technique side of the percussion world. I also taught lessons for about 3 years, both theory and percussion.
When it comes to teaching, I believe in treating students as the individuals as they are. Finding out what they enjor and what works for them. I also use past professional and personal experience to teach in a mutual learning environment. Personal connection can be a great learning tool!
I look forward to be able to make some awesome music with you!
