The only thing I love as much as playing music live is teaching music. When the light comes on and a student "gets it", I get as much joy as they do.
I aim to help you achieve your goals through personalized training focused on technique, coordination, groove, and musicality. In addition to over a decade’s worth of playing experience, my 5 years of teaching experience have included private students, masterclasses, and clinics with both drumlines and big bands at Hillcrest, Bonneville, and Idaho Falls High Schools. Let’s play music, not just the drums.

Colleen M. Story
Colleen plays French horn in the Idaho Falls Symphony and various other local music groups in the area, and had been teaching private music lessons for over 30 years. She earned her bachelor's degree in music education from Western Colorado University in 1991, where she focused on French horn and piano, earning the prestigious Damson Scholarship for Musical Performance.
Colleen graduated summa cum laude and though she switched careers to focus on writing (she is a published author and full-time freelancer), she continues to enjoy teaching music privately. Many of her students have gone on to earn scholarships for their musical ability at the college level. She expects her students to work hard, and she goes the extra mile for them in return, striving to instill within them a love of music, an ability to focus and accomplish their goals, and a sense of inner confidence and pride that will serve them throughout their lives.
