Students are expected to show up to lessons on time, well-prepared and having all sticks, mallets and music with them. They must own, rent or have regular access to all instruments studied in lessons. For at-home practice, students must also have a metronome, music stand and hearing protection. It is always my goal to make lessons fun, creative and exciting. One key element to an enjoyable, rewarding learning experience is consistent practice. I encourage students to follow the philosophy of pedagogue Dr. Shinichi Suzuki:
"Only Practice On The Days You Eat"
The McGrath Percussion Studio is located in the Adams Hill neighborhood of Glendale, California and equipped with a full range of instruments:
The Studio has a sound system for playback with recordings and/or a metronome, in addition to a library of hundreds of recordings, method books, solos, ensembles, scores and articles. There is always ample, free parking available. Please note that I only teach college and post-graduate students at my house. Pre-college students may study with me at the Colburn Community School of Performing Arts.
