Adelphi University

As the director of percussion studies at Adelphi University, I am responsible for teaching applied percussion lessons and directing the Adelphi Percussion Group. Whether my students are aiming for a career in performance or music education, I strive to provide them with an extremely well rounded education in the percussive arts. Whereas the program tends to focus heavily on new and contemporary percussion music, the program also includes instruction in orchestral percussion, ethnic hand drumming and drum set. My goal is to arm my students with as wide a variety of skills as possible as they make their journey into the professional music world.
