Jon Taylor

Drummer, Percussionist, Composer, Improviser, Educator

I've been playing drums for the majority of my life, and consider teaching to be an indispensable part of my musical and personal growth. the process of sharing my own insights and the knowledge passed to me by teachers and peers is extraordinarily grounding and healing, for both myself and for dedicated students. I take a heavily individualized approach to teaching, trying to understand first and foremost what each student is passionate about, using that as a baseline for motivating the development of technique and musicality. reading and listening skills are emphasized as crucial for professional and creative development. Most of all I try to encourage creative expression through improvisation and composition so that a student feels confident, curious, and invigorated in any musical situation that they choose to explore.  I teach all styles and levels.
