About Marshall

Marshall Wilfong
Music Teacher, Expert
Location: Durham, NC
Speaks: English
Instructs: Drums
Education: Studied percussion under Dale Baker ( Six Pence None the Richer). Graduated from Northern High in 2015. Have two years of College education under my belt at West Virginia University.
Performance Experience: Have been drumming within the Greensboro music scene for the past five years. Previously played with prog-jam band Fifth Species and performed all throughout Greensboro and Burlington. Am currently recording, and gigging with up and coming progressive rock band Porcelain Lovecraft.
Teaching Experience: Have been teaching in some shape or form since I was fifteen. Initially I taught merit badges at a Mt. Airy based scouting camp. For the past five years I have been offering private drum lessons to a number of students. I have gained experience teaching a variety of subjects to a wide array of age groups through my employment over the past four years at Carolina Friends School.
Teaching Philosophy: I believe in teaching drums through the traditional methods that all of the quintessential jazz and progressive drummers went through, everyone of my students will be fluent and comfortable playing marching snare drum before moving onto the kit. They will be able to site read snare drums cadences, play through Lawrence Stone's Stick Control, and work through all 40 rudiments before progressing onto the standard drumming books that countless musicians, myself included, cut their teeth on.

Get to know Marshall

Born and raised in Durham, NC. I grew up in a musical household, my father being the trombone player for the Durham and Raleigh musical productions and my mother being a piano and hand bell player fostered a love for music within me from a very early age. I began playing drums at twelve years old and have pursued and practiced the craft daily ever since. On top of my passion for music and all things drums I am also an Eagle Scout, have been a lifeguard and wilderness survival instructor and currently work at Carolina Friends School as the head of their middle school after-school program, and primary substitute for both High and Middle Schools.
