Peggy teaches students of all levels, both children and adults. The lesson focus is on drumset and snare drum (mallet lessons are not offered at this time).
Lessons consist of technique books, exercises, solo material, and playing to recordings. Brush playing is also included. The exact mix is determined by student abilities and immediate concerns (jazz band chart, competition solo, etc.). Students are expected to take their lessons seriously and work to the best of their abilities.
Peggy teaches lessons both at her home studio in North Tonawanda and at Alder Creek Music [Niagara Falls Blvd in Wheatfield].
For lessons at Alder Creek, please contact the store at (716) 693-5456 or aldercreekmusic.com for information.
