A Chat with Matt Germano Percussion Studio
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
My core principles have always been: enthusiasm, strong fundamentals, and preparedness for real-world musical situations. I utilize knowledge from my classical, formal training and my ten years of professional playing to pass on the tradition of drumming in a dynamic and dynamic and meaningful way.
Do you provide any materials? What should your students expect to bring?
My studio is set-up with a drum kits, mallet instruments (bells, xylophone), all manner of small percussion, practice pads, a piano, and my music library. Students should bring a pair of sticks and blank notebook to the first lesson.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Teaching has always been something I have been passionate about. Every since I graduated with a degree in music I been dedicated to music education Currently I run a private studio, coach percussion for the Peninsula Youth Orchestra, and run a Steel Drum Ensemble for North Shoreview Montessori.
What do you love most about your job?
I really enjoy interacting with students of varying age (my youngest student is in 2nd grade and my oldest is in his 60’s!), getting to know them through music, having fun, and seeing their musical growth.
