Mr. Reese provides one-on-one and small group instruction on rhythmic and melodic percussion instruments.
Teaching Philosophy: I believe that all children are musical, and that they should have a role in designing or selecting their musical path. I encourage students to explore music in ways they can connect with and relate, and I allow them some flexibility or decisions when we meet to create their curriculum and plan of study. I also believe in the value of parental engagement and support of the student and their musical interests.
