Jeremy Parker

Drums & Percussion

Jeremy has played drumset and concert percussion for 36 years. He has been teaching drumset, concert snare, and marimba for 26 years, over six of those at Ballard School of Performing Arts, and also teaches marching percussion/drumline. He begins with the basics and watches the student’s personal style develop, all the while using safe mechanics. Jeremy then introduces students to playing and appreciating many genres of music and he strongly encourages artistry. His students also learn to read sheet music, composition, and how to decipher charts. He has taught students ranging from 5 years to 60+. If you have a love for rhythm, we would be happy to have you as a student.

Jeremy’s favorite music quote is, “Make a joyful noise to the Lord” ~ Psalm 100:1
