I offer private and group lessons in all styles of drum set, marimba, hand drums, and classical percussion.  I have a studio space in the North Valley where I teach and rehearse.  Lessons can take place at student's home if desired.  My studio space is available for bands that need a large room to rent for rehearsing.
