Jaren’s teaching is designed to offer a comprehensive approach for serious percussion students who are seeking to improve their skills and grow as artists. Jaren’s approach will give needed instruction to students who are looking to improve their technique and coordination behind the drum set, audition for colleges or bands, or simply foster their talents for the joy of playing music. Various groove styles (i.e. jazz, rock, and Afro-Cuban) are explored and implemented if the student so chooses.
