Teacher, Composer, Percussionist

enriching and inspiring others through music

Music offers a great opportunity to make an outsized impact on making our world a better place. My desire to serve in this way drives what I do, whether I'm presenting to schools, teaching and mentoring aspiring musicians of all ages, working together with other talented performers to bring my music to a global audience, or providing pathways for others to explore humanity's vast musical treasury. I'd love to work with you and invite you to open the conversation!

Currently, I am teaching in person at Hugo Helmer Music in Burlington, ClickMusic in Oak Harbor, and online via Skype, Google Hangout, and Zoom.  If you're an aspiring percussionist, I invite you to register in my new online course, Rhythmic Coordination 1.  Finally, you can find over 100 previously livestreamed free lessons on my YouTube channel.
