RATAMACUE is a percussion performance learning center where the art of playing drums and percussion are taught at the highest level. The atmosphere is comfortable, relaxed, and although highly professional, very welcoming for all ages and levels. Jude and John work closely together to provide the same level of teaching for all students.

The best part of teaching is learning each student's style (both learning style and playing style) and then developing that into performance talent!

    Best Percussion Instruction
    Jude is an amazing teacher. She has a wonderful, bright personality that puts her students immediately at ease. She knows how to impart her musical knowledge and talent with both newcomer and advanced students. I cant recommend her enough.

    Multi-generational experience with Jude
    Delighted to have my son following in his Uncles footsteps & studying w/Jude. He has built a great relationship with her in just his first year and is learning so much already. We look forward to a long relationship for years to come.

    So much more than drums!
    My daughter has been studying percussion with Jude St. George for a little over three years. She has gained an appreciation for all of the instruments under the percussion umbrella. Jude encourages her students and works with them to have a thorough understanding of sheet music and deepens their music theory knowledge.
