Our son has learned quite a bit from Jim in just the few short months that he has been taking lessons from him. Jim is very thorough in making sure that our son is learning the correct way to play the snare drum. He does not rush through the lessons. We have been very happy with him.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Length of lessons usually depends upon the student's age and attention span.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    Attendance at the leading international Percussion conferences, multiple master classes, clinics and education seminars. I also present such sessions and serve as an Educational Endorser for Grover/Pro Percussion.

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    I was inspired by my older brother, who played percussion, and by a very active music scene in my hometown. I loved watching percussionists in action as they played the many various instruments and moved from one to the other.
