About Nava

I graduated from Mills College with a BA in Music with honors, and majored in Percussion. I've been playing percussion for most of my life, and I am active performer and improviser currently based in Bay Area. I can teach from basic to advance percussion techniques and mallets. Together we would figure out what you needed and the best way to learn it.

Although I am American, I was born and lived in Japan for 18 years until I went to college in US, so I am also native Japanese speaker, so I can teach general to advanced conversation depending on what you want to learn. As another option, I could also teach percussion in Japanese to anyone who would like to learn in Japanese.

Last but not least, I love teaching, and I am dependable, dedicated and willing tackle on any challenge.
