Simon Boyar School of Drums and Percussion Faculty 


Elijah Duncan

Elijah Duncan is a drummer and percussionist based in Ossining, NY. Elijah began developing his foundational hand technique while studying snare drum with Simon Boyar in the early years of the Simon Boyar Drum School. At the end of high school he studied with Latin Jazz master Adam Cruz before going on to attend the Conservatory of Music at Purchase College. While there he has studied with renowned drummer Matt Wilson and learned from Legendary drummer and jazz historian Kenny Washington. As his time at Jazz School ends Elijah looks to be performing and gigging as much as possible in the area. Elijah is honored to have returned to the Simon Boyar School as a teacher to offer the musical knowledge he has accumulated so far. Coming from a large family, he has much experience with younger learners and enjoys instructing students who are motivated to improve.
