I hold a Bachelor of Music Education degree, instrumental emphasis, and Bachelor of Music degree, percussion performance from Wartburg College in Waverly, IA. I was the outstanding senior in the B.M. degree for my class.
Classically trained, my favorite percussion instrument is the marimba. I also play snare drum, timpani, percussion accessories, and drum set. Most percussion lessons are done on marimba, snare, and drum set.
I currently perform regularly as the drummer for Southern Resident Killer Whales. We have shows throughout the Twin Cities every 6-8 weeks. Links to shows will be posted in events. Please note that not all shows are all ages.
I am the band teacher at Twin Cities German Immersion School. I teach grades 5-8 band, including instruments flute, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, trombone, and percussion. We play throughout the year at school events, and have a final concert in June.
