DaltonDrum Lessons For All Ages And Levels In Den Haag !
With years of experience playing drums across the US and Europe in a variety of contexts, I am passionate about percussion and music. My extensive studies and professional experience have included classical percussion, rudimental (marching) percussion, and contemporary drumset.
Behind the drumset, I specialize in jazz, rock, and free improvisation and have performed at major venues and festivals including the Monterey Jazz Festival (California), Montreux Jazz Festival (Switzerland), Umbria Jazz Festival (Italy), Frederick P. Rose Hall - Lincoln Center (New York City), and Carnegie Hall (New York City).
After studying with John Riley at the Manhattan School of Music in New York City, I am now in Den Haag to study Electro-Acoustic Composition and Performance at The Institute of Sonology. I have been teaching rudimental percussion, drumset, and improvisation for nearly three years and absolutely love it! I am always enthusiastic to meet new students, understand their musical ambitions, and help them reach their goals!
I am available to teach at my home in the center of Den Haag, at the Koninklijk Conservatorium, or I can come to meet you at your home or studio.
Additionally, I am proficient in Ableton Live, Max MSP, Reaktor, and Supercollider and can teach about incorporating electronics into the acoustic drumset.
Feel free to contact me with any questions or requests!
Talk to you soon :)
