My musical career started at age 3 when my parents placed a pair of drum sticks in my hands. I started playing drums in church and then progressed to play in middle school where I was part of the jazz band and orchestra. With some very early lessons, I begin to blossom into a skillful drummer. I then continued to play in bands in high school and, in addition, became a member of the Milford Mill Academy Marching Band. In my sophomore year, I became the section leader of the drum line where I played & mastered the snare drum. I have 2 degrees in music theory from Deer Park Magnet school and Morgan State University. I have performed with many bands from all different musical genres such as gospel, funk, pop, jazz, blues, rock, Latin, reggae, and R&B. In 2004 I became the only ...

I like to start my students off with a solid rudimentary and technique based foundation, to ensure the development of fluidity as they progress. I give recommend listening, and try to expose students to various styles of music as we also learn to play all their favorites!
Music is something that everyone can share and express themselves through, and i want to help everyone to find that avenue of expression! I studied drums at the Drummers Collective in New York City, where i studied several genres of music. I play everything from rock, jazz, soul, R&B, Caribbean, and Latin music. If a student is interested in a certain style of music i would be happy to dive into that further, or explore other genres that may peek interest. The difference between me and many other teachers is that i genuinely love teaching and watching my students grow as players and musicians.

I've been teaching drums for the past 10 years, nine of those as the Director Of Drum Set Studies at Dale Music, Co. I will teach you how to read musical notation and I specialize in how to play using proper technique with solid timing. Two of the many areas that we'll cover are, The Rudiments as well as a variety of musical styles. A few of the instructional materials that we will work from are: "Elementary Drum Method" and "Realistic Rock" for the beginning student, "Stick Control" and "Syncopation" for the intermediate on into, "New Breed" and Alan Dawson's "...Complete Vocabulary" for the advanced student.
While my teaching style is relaxed, you will have to put in the work to achieve a level of proficiency. Keep in mind, "you can't get a full result with half an effort" and "the best shortcut is hard work." So, let's get to work!
Hi, I’m Jeff and I have been playing the drums for over 40 years and an instructor for the past 10 years. I began my teaching career at The School of Rock where I spent one (1) year helping the drum students learn to play along to songs from various rock groups such as The Rolling Stones, Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Rush, Kiss and Led Zeppelin. We also covered funk artist Sly & The Family Stone, Stevie Wonder, Parliament Funkadelic and James Brown, to name a few. From there, I started teaching at Dale Music, Co., where I served as the Director of Drum Set Studies for the past nine (9) years with a concentration on performing jazz. My personal drumming style has been influenced by Steve Gadd, William Kennedy, Jimmy Cobb, Art Blakey, Steve Smith and Ndugu Chancler to name a few. ...
I have a degree in Music Education, and I am a percussionist. I took lessons in college while pursuing a Masters Degree in conducting. I have performed countless solos and studied many method books in all areas of percussion including mallets, timpani, snare drum, and drum set.
I earned a Bachelors in Music Education as a percussionist in 2006 at Mansfield University. I took lessons for 8 semesters with three different teachers, so I have various teaching styles I can choose from. Also, as a music ed major I took classes on flute, clarinet, sax, oboe, bassoon, trumpet, french horn, trombone, baritone, tuba, strings, and multiple piano classes.
I then went on to be a band director for 6 years. During that time I was able to give my students private and group lessons on their instruments. In addition, I had a couple private students on guitar, drums, and piano.
I left the classroom to pursue a Masters Degree in Instrumental Conducting at Mansfield University. I played in the marching band, wind ensemble, and orchestra while working on my masters ...
