About Me

I am a Recent graduate of Berklee College of music in Boston with 10 years of teaching experience, and 17 years playing experience. I have won multiple drum competitions and have experience performing in all styles from jazz (Phil Woods) to folk (Jay Ungar and Molly Mason).

I first got excited about the drums from watching local bands play in my hometown of Ithaca, NY. From there I began to play in the jazz band at a community music school, and soon after that began playing in elementary school concert and jazz band. Soon after, I started playing in cover bands and expanding my repertoire. In high school I won two downbeat awards for best pop/rock drummer (2004) and outstanding performance for jazz drumming (2005). In high school I played in various touring groups, and started Berklee in 2009.

Since Berklee, I have worked on Celebrity Cruise lines as a drummer for jazz and rock bands, as well as playing for the theatrical performances and musical reviews. I am happy to have my teaching studio up and running in Nashville!

My influences are many, but if I were to break them into categories:
Rock: John Bonham, Abe Cunningham, Abe Laboriel Jr
Funk: Chris Dave, Ziggy Modeliste, Pete Mclain
Jazz: Tony Williams, Max Roach, Art Blakey

“Russ is one of the absolute best students I have ever had in my long teaching career at Berklee College of Music. Russ is very talented, smart, highly disciplined and open minded as a musician. Having Russ as a teacher will be an experience where the student will receive an effective, focused, and open minded approach to the students individual musical needs and interests.”

-Dave Weigert, Drum Instructor, Berklee College of Music.  I've been teaching privately for 10 years, and in that time have found that the best way to maximize each students success is to focus on the material that is most interesting to them.

Beginning students can learn their favorite songs, while getting a basic foundation in rudiments and syncopation, while advanced students can structure the lesson in a way they would find the most beneficial to their playing style and interests.

I am happy to recommend books, music and DVDs relevant to your interests! I have a huge collection of drum books, DVDs and music that I am happy to share!

About Me

Re-imagine. Re-define. Re-authenticate.

This is the motto followed by Minnesota born Kyle Wesley; combining classic methods with modern soundscapes in order to stretch genres. Whether through production skills, engineering, or instrumental performances, the goal is always innovation.

Studying under multiple teachers and disciplines, Kyle Wesley's sound has been shaped by his education, stemming from Jonny Lang's teacher Teddy Larsen, to jazz visionaries Nick Fryer and Alan Carter (MSUM), to professional Nashville session guitarist Mike Ihde (Berklee College of Music).

Thanks to proper education and inspiration, Kyle Wesley has performed at many venues of multiple sizes. As small as local jazz clubs, such as Studio 222, unique as the community theater orchestral pit, and as large as opening for bands like OK Go in packed settings. No venue is too large or too small.

Currently Kyle Wesley is paving his way through Nashville and beyond by creating his own methods, re-defining genres, and creating vast soundscapes to fit any situation. Constantly furthering himself creatively and proficiently, Kyle Wesley has showed continuing dedication towards achieving success in production, engineering and musicality.

Lessons with Kyle Wesley can include anything and everything!

I believe the ability to play an instrument is only part of musicianship. I also strive to teach my students the theory behind the music they learn. I work hard to make sure that my students are doing everything in the easiest way possible. I want to ensure that they are able to progress quickly enough so that they can see the difference. The most rewarding moment as a teacher is when a student points out how hard something once was and how easy it has become.

*** Lesson Details ***
Expect to have a great experience from your first lesson to your last lesson. I live music every day and like to expose all my students to new and innovative songs and styles that are used in today’s music.
I design a practice work flow so my students know how to set up their practice space and the best way to practice what I have shown them. You will see a gradual progression that I create for students to advance their drumming techniques enabling them to play the songs they have always wanted to play.
I teach a step by step method to playing the drums and each lesson includes technique skills, reading music skills and learning drum patterns to playing songs.
Students will be able to play a simple drum pattern in their first lesson with a song. In 3 months you will see music reading skills greatly improve and a good start on coordination technique skills. In six months the student will be able to read music well and play basic patterns for songs. Coordination and technique skills will have greatly improved.
I like to have a music concert for my students once a year at the end of April or the beginning of May in a safe and quite venue which lasts only about an hour. This gives students a performance goal and it’s so much fun.
