Teaching Philosophy: My teaching philosophy is very simple. I focus on learning how to keep time as a percussionist, how to play clean and precise, and how to play with other musicians.

All lesson plans are of course tailored to the students skill level and interest as well.

Get to know Jasper Willis

My name is Jasper Willis. I am a local product raised in Northern Virginia and attended college here as well (George Mason University). Although I did not study music in college, that is where I found my love for music and the drums. I started playing for a local church and through exploratory practice and learning from other musicians, it has molded me into the musician and teacher that I am today. (Still learning as well!) 

 

I have been performing before live audiences for 9+ years. I have been in a variety of situations playing a variety of different styles and genres of music ranging from Rock to worship to even some classical music. I have played in different countries as well playing to music in different languages.  

 

I have been teaching music for about 7+ years to students of all ages and all skill levels. I am mainly a self taught player who learned a lot through experience. I believes this gives me an edge and keen voice as an educator because I know exactly what is being played in the live scene as well as knowing how to research and pick out certain skills to hone to perform when called up.
