Rafe H. Murfreesboro, TN

About Rafe

Hello! My name is Rafe (rhymes with safe) and I'm a drummer and drum teacher in Murfreesboro, Tennessee.

My wife, two teenagers and two dogs and I have lived in Murfreesboro since 2006. Prior to that I lived in Nashville after moving here from Atlanta in 2001.

I come from a long line of singer/songwriters and working musicians. I've been playing drums and percussion since elementary school. My first real drum hero was Peter Criss of KISS!

During and after high school I developed the reading and coordination skills to move from marching and orchestral percussion into drum set playing. Along the way I've had the good fortune of knowing and being mentored by some very worthy and accomplished teachers, most notably Jack Dukes of Atlanta, GA who was an early graduate ...

Ross R. Nashville, TN

OK, everything is percussion! But certain ones require certain techniques.....and this is what I spent my college years doing when I wasn't trying to meet girls. I can help with most Latin drums, all orchestra percussion, and vibes/xylophone/marimba.

About Ross

As a graduate of University of Memphis (Bachelor of Music, composition/percussion, 1983), I have since been a professional musician for over thirty years, performing in 49 out of 50 United States, Canada, U.K., Japan, Malaysia, and Singapore, and on over 100 nationally released recordings. I believe everyone has music inside that needs to be nurtured and shared, so I began teaching contemporary keyboard lessons privately in upstate New York starting in 2010. In 2012 I was invited to be the main keyboard teacher at the Paul Green Rock Academy in Woodstock NY, whose namesake was the original founder of the School of Rock franchise, and within the first year helped to quadruple the student body, while guiding them through learning the demanding music of Yes, Queen, and Frank Zappa. Now ...

Wil S. Nashville, TN

Drums have been such a wonderful supplement to my overall musicianship (piano primarily) that I continually practice my old rudiments and practice random percussion instruments on a daily basis. Even though I do not have a degree in drums, I teach them (and play) well.

I have been teaching drums for 8 years now, and have been fortunate enough to play in many different styles of bands, including alternative, jazz, marching (snare and quints), pop, country and more.

Students can expect rapid growth from my lessons as well as having a great time and enjoying music!

About Wil

Hello there! My name is Wil. Let me tell you a little about my background.

I have studied piano extensively for 17 years and drums for 10+, taught since early high school (2005) and have a degree from Southern Methodist University (2013) in Music Composition, with focuses on jazz and classical piano. I also have played in different alternative, pop, rock, country bands throughout my career as a musician, both as a keyboardist and drummer.

I offer any form of lessons, depending on what music style you are trying to play and learn - I have learned all types of music theory, and can play by ear as well! My diverse playing abilities aid in my full understanding and ability to convey music to any age, any style. I love teaching and giving back to the community through sharing and making ...
