    About MeContact Me
    Introduction

    My name is Dale Speicher. I am a professional percussionist here in Seattle and I am accepting new students at my studio in Seattle. I am also looking for an opportunity to work with students in a group setting. I have experience working with band and orchestra students, percussion ensembles, group lessons in music theory and history. I can also travel to studentís houses for individual lessons and group lessons.

    My studio has a marimba, vibraphone, drum set and other percussion instruments to match your instructional needs. I am also interested in working with student percussion ensembles and coaching students in performing ensembles such as band and orchestra. If your school does not have a percussion ensemble I would be happy to speak with you about the benefits of percussion ensembles to the development of your young percussionistís musicality and listening skills.

    My Teaching Background
    I am the founder of the Seattle Percussion Collective and my experience ranges from chamber music to orchestral playing to multiple styles of drum set playing including jazz, musical theater and rock and roll. I have experience teaching students from age 5 to age 65. Lessons will be modeled to match the studentís experience level and musical training. All students will learn to read music and learn basic music theory skills. I am an orchestrally trained, college educated professional freelance musician and Iím excited to help you along your musical journey. My freelance experience includes work with the Pacific Northwest Ballet Orchestra, Bellevue Opera, Bellevue Philharmonic, Tacoma Philharmonic, Pacific Rims Percussion Quartet, and appearances at the Moore and Paramount Theaters.

    My Teaching Philosophy
    Lessons are modified to the needs of each student. However, all of my students learn to read music and will also learn proper technique.

    Rates And Availability
    I have a percussion studio, however I am able to travel to your home as well. I charge $30 for half hour lessons and $60 for hour lessons.
