Blake Dixon Greetings! My name is Blake Dixon and I am the third generation of teachers in the Dixon family. My grandfather and grandmother were tap dance instructors and owned several Dixon Dance Studios around the surrounding states. My father is the legendary Denny Dixon, who owned Denny's Drum Depot and taught for over 60 years. Now I am carrying the torch of teachers with 18 years of drum teaching experience. Teaching is my passion and I love the opportunity to escape life's obstacles in the teaching room every day with my students. Possibly even with your sons and daughters! I enjoy all genres of music, but I do prefer hard rock/heavy metal. I'm trained in all areas of music from jazz, blues, classic rock, reggae and funk. I am also well versed in marching band music/sight reading pep band/jazz band for many of the local schools. I look forward to continuing my teaching career well into my 70's, as my father and his father before him. God Bless, and come rock with us at Greenfield Music Center!
