About Derek Jones

Derek Jones
Derek Jones
Music Teacher, Professional
Location: Gilbert, AZ
Speaks: English
Instructs: Drums
Education: High School Diploma
Performance Experience: 15+ years experience has presented me with opportunities in orchestral percussion, theatre, jazz ensembles, drumline, weddings, show tunes, private events and local venues. These opportunities as well as others, have given me exposure to a wide variety of musical genres and scenerios.
Teaching Experience: I have over 9 years experience teaching private lessons via house calls and in studio venues. I also have experience teaching middle school and high school drumline and percussion
Teaching Philosophy: In my experience, individual, careful attention to the unique needs for each student is paramount in achieving great results. What the student is inspired to explore is key in focusing the direction of my goal as a teacher. Discovering new and exciting aspects of what music, drumming, and creativity can do for us is one of my greatest joys in life. As a father, the joy through learning brings great connection and security. Having FUN is the foundation of great learning. Let's play!
