Dear Students and Parents:
Summer lessons will begin online tomorrow, June 8, 2020. If you have not signed up, please do so before the slots are all gone. If you do not have the link, please email me.
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.

***Action Item - I will be posting information and updates on my website going forward. I ask that you please log into your account on my website or create an account if you do not have one. Upon logging in, please fill out the form with your correct address and then send me a quick email when this is done. Within 24 hours of you emailing me, I will give you special access to the "Private Students Only" page. This is where most of the important updates will eventually be posted. Please note - YOU WILL NOT IMMEDIATELY BE ABLE TO GET INTO THE "PRIVATE STUDENTS ONLY" PAGE BECAUSE I HAVE TO MANUALLY APPROVE YOU. This is for your protection.
That's about it for now. Stay healthy!
