My name is Anthony DeMartinis and I am a percussion instructor. I am a solo and collaborative musician, educator, and researcher. I have received my bachelor’s and master’s degrees in Percussion Performance and Chamber Music from the University of Michigan. I am currently a doctoral student at University of Wisconsin- Madison studying Percussion with a minor in Jazz Studies. My teaching experiences have included being the Assistant Drum Line Instructor of the University of Michigan, a percussion instructor for the Detroit Symphony Youth Orchestra, working with local public school students, and several years of private music teaching.
As a musician, I have been involved with a variety of performing and teaching opportunities, and as such, my pedagogy pulls from each of these diverse experiences. I believe that music should be enjoyed and explored by everybody from young professionals interested in perfecting their 4-mallet instrument technique, to high school students in marching band, to enthusiasts who want to learn how to play their favorite songs on drum set!
I teach a variety of skills pertaining to percussion and music including:
Including concert band and orchestra, marimba and vibraphone lessons, and solo and chamber performance
