    Course Information 
    I work with percussionists in grades 6-12 at the Forbes, Tippit, and East View campuses.  Due to the complexity of my schedule working on three campuses on a daily basis, email is almost always the fastest way to reach me.  Please be patient with my response in non-emergency situations.  Never hesitate to contact me if you have a question or concern about your child's percussion education!
