Why private lessons?
Taking private lessons is one of the best ways to make huge improvements, and fast. Your teacher is coach, mentor and personal trainer all in one. You will:
  • Make progress faster
  • Avoid mistakes
  • Develop good habits
  • Set and achieve goals
  • Grow your network
  • Achieve your potential!
There is also strong research and statistical evidence that good, high quality music education helps students achieve more in school and in life than their non-musician peers.

What have students achieved?

  • Accepted into Utah All-State Concert Band and Jazz Ensemble
  • Entrance and scholarships to colleges and universities, including all major programs in Utah
  • Top placement in school and region/district ensembles
  • Professional/touring musicians

What do parents say? 
"Thanks for all you do! {My son} LOVES to come to lessons because you're so amazing!"

"I'm very grateful {he} has a good teacher who knows how to help him learn, improve and enjoy percussion!"

Where and when are lessons taught? What are your rates?
There are currently two locations available, and the first lesson is always free. Lessons are $25/lesson* - 30 minute lessons**

KBS Percussion Studio in Syracuse
  • Lessons on Tuesdays thru Thursdays
  • Located near Syracuse Arts Academy
  • Acoustic drums (Yamaha/DW) and cymbals (Zildjian)
  • Electronic drums (Roland V-Drums)
  • Acoustic 4-octave xylophone (Adams)

What is your teaching philosophy?
It’s my belief that music makes us better people, no matter what educational, career or life path we choose. Part of the benefit is learning to enjoy working hard, doing it “right” and finding success through challenging oneself.

I also strongly believe that music making should be fun, at least a majority of the time. So we will work hard, learn a lot and have a great time doing it.

*Lesson schedule and pricing are both subject to change at any time. Please email for current information.

**45 and 60 minute lessons are available for advanced students. Please email for more information.
