About Douglas

I am a professional percussionist and am fluent in many styles of drumming. For 12 years, I traveled the globe playing drums, percussion, and vibraphone with Portland’s Pink Martini. I was also a member of the 1985 World Champion Garfield Cadets Drum and Bugle Corps. My degree is in Percussion Performance from the University of Oregon, which I attended on a partial scholarship. I now dedicate my time to teaching people of all ages the art of percussion and drumming with an emphasis on playing and learning because it’s fun. To help students understand rhythm without having to jump immediately into learning complex notation, I invented a series of books titled “Rhythm By The Numbers” system. Students have found these books to be very helpful, and I offer them for sale in my studio.

Learning to play the drums with me is rewarding, educational and, most of all, FUN! Contact me via WyzAnt today with any questions you may have. Thank you!
