Jon Berghouse began teaching drum and percussion lessons in 2013, and has been playing for 25 years and counting. Jon understands that every student is unique and he tailors lessons to each student in order to meet their needs. Jon strives to make drumming fun, and aims to teach his students effective techniques, improve their ability to read music, improve their listening skills (ear training with a focus on rhythm), and introduces different drumming styles from a wide variety of musical genres like rock, pop, funk, swing, jazz, and afro-cuban music. For drum set, Jon teaches beginner, intermediate, and advanced levels and works well with children as young as 5, as well as adults. Jon also teaches mallet percussion (xylophone, marimba, bells). Jon is also a percussion coach at Challenger Middle School and plays drum set and percussion in musical theater. He loves animals, his dogs, and enjoys traveling, hiking and camping. Jon is available for online lessons from 30-60min Monday - Friday and looks forward to meeting new students!
