Private Lessons

After graduating from Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA with a degree in Music Business/Management (Drum Set Principle), Wes moved back to his hometown of Portland, OR. He brings the knowledge of lessons he learned from professors at the school like Kenwood Dennard, Sergio Bellotti, John Hazilla, and Larry Watson. He is also fortunate to have studied with local legends Israel Annoh, Christopher Brown, Mike Stevens, Rob Sullens, and Mike Johnston. Wes is an accredited member of the Oregon Music Teacher’s Association, and teaches at the Rhythm Traders drum store in northeast PDX.
