Drums and Percussion
Shiv (they/them) is a cat parent and arts student moonlighting as a percussionist. They grew up in the Poconos climbing trees, making bad jokes, and playing drums and percussion in their school orchestra and jazz ensemble.
Shiv is new to the DC area, most recently spending five years in Tokyo teaching kindergarten and working on personal art projects.
They are very excited to teach young learners about how to develop rhythmic skills and musical literacy, and to help them be comfortable with making mistakes in their musical journey. As an educator, they strive to be sensitive to students’ individual needs and learning styles, all while encouraging them to have fun and be themselves.
Shiv is always happy to nerd out about anything art or food related; talk to them about video game soundtracks and Thai cuisine!
