I am available for SKYPE lessons. I have been the Assistant Principal Timpanist and Percussionist with the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra since 1992. I have also been an Adjunct Professor of Percussion at Butler University since 1995, and have been a frequent Guest Lecturer at IU’s Jacob’s School of Music. Prior to the ISO I spent many years as a drum set player including playing for Matthew Morrison (Glee), Idina Menzel (Glee, Rent,etc..), Marvin Hamlisch, touring Europe with the American Youth Jazz Band, touring the US with Johnny Mathis, Perry Como, and Jimmy Dorsey. Also played for 4 years in the University of Delaware Jazz Band, Dominic Spera’s Jazz Band at Indiana University, playing literally thousands of gigs with Al Cobine, Cathy Morris, Jim Farrelly, weddings, the Jazz Kitchen, Chatterbox, rock bands, etc
I hold a Bachelors degree from the U of Delaware, a Masters from IU, and Performers Certificate from IU, all in percussion performance.
Teaching is a passion of mine, and I want to teach more from my home rather than Butler or IU. I love teaching students of any age and level of playing!
