Terah's musical journey began once she discovered her passion for drums at the age of ten. She was trained in classical percussion and drums in Berlin, Germany, and then received her Bachelor of Music degree in the U.S. During high school and university, Terah played percussion for concert bands and orchestras, including a European honor band concert in Vienna, Austria. She played drums for musicals, jazz ensembles, basketball pep bands, various rock, dance and church bands, studio recording gigs and touring bands. Later, she focused solely on drum set, her favorite style being anthem-rock and anything groove. She has been teaching private drum lessons since 2004. An eventual move to California provided Terah the opportunity to play rock gigs around Los Angeles, and to perform as a drummer at Disneyland for five years. During her time with Disney, she was chosen to be the lead drummer for a Screen Actors Guild national commercial and a major company convention. She helped teach drum parts to new hires, and here's a fun tidbit: she got to teach Mickey Mouse as well!
Terah can teach you to read notation and follow charts, or to simply listen to songs and decipher the beats together. Her philosophy is to let the student choose since we all learn best in different ways. She believes you are never too old to start something new! Music has been such a fulfilling part of her life that she truly enjoys helping others achieve steps toward their own musical goals and dreams.
