About Us

A bit of history

Percussion Performance Denver is my online presence for a career in teaching drum lessons that has lasted since the late 1970's.

My name is Alan Martin and I have been teaching drums privately since my senior year while attending the University of Colorado, Boulder. Many of my students are still playing today.

I have also taught in the public schools. Having taught General, Instrumental music for over 10 years. This gives me a unique perspective at what is being taught in the Public and Private school systems.

My professional experience has included playing in local productions of musical theater. I also have done many private engagements from Jazz quartets, Big Band,and Orchestras.
