I graduated from the University of North Texas with a Bachelor's of Music. I later graduated from the University of Missouri - St. Louis with a Master's of Music Education. I have taught band, jazz band, drum line, class piano, and class guitar for the last 25 years through public education. I love to perform music and I am presently performing as the timpanist with the St. Louis Philharmonic, and the drum set player for the Queens of Swing. I can play and I am proficient in all band instruments up through 9th grade. I am a professional percussionist and I have taught students on drum set and orchestral percussion up through an adult level. I have had several students become professional musicians. Since most musicians just want to perform music for their own personal enjoyment, I customize my lessons according to to goals of the student.
