2020-21 School Year Lessons will begin on August 31st.
Lessons are most effective if students have the following, although I may make individual recommendations based on each student's experience and goals:
1. Drum Pad or Snare Drum
2. Bell Kit, Marimba, Xylophone, Vibraphone, or Piano
3. Drum Set (optional)
3. 2 Electronic Devices - 1 to connect to Zoom, 1 to play a metronome or audio tracks and/or read off of the screen.
4. Printed sheet music and books that I ask you to use.
5. Sticks and mallets.
My recommendations if you need to purchase sticks or mallets are as follows. These recommendations are for most students, beginning to strong intermediate level. I have more custom recommendations for very advanced players.
