Great teacher!

Great with my daughter (age 7). She looks forward to her lesson every week, and is learning rapidly. He has great patience and has gotten to know my daughter and listens to her feedback while at the same time offering encouraging instruction.

Great Drum Teacher

My daughter had been taking private drum lesson for years before she started with Derrick. At the first lesson, Derrick told her how important it was to feel the music, other than just working on technique. That was exactly what she needed to work on. Derrick has a broad experience with playing different type of music. He likes to show her how to play, which helps her understand right away. He is very nice and patient. He is flexible and reliable in terms of lesson schedules. He uses lots of references, songs and exercises in his teaching. Now, my daughter enjoys her lessons and practices a lot more.

Derrick is everything a Teacher should be.

I have known Derrick for several years and can attest to his playing and teaching prowess. He is a well schooled percussionist, drum set player and teacher. Even though I have played professionally for over 40 years, I still come to Derrick to get a different perspective and guidance in my playing. Derrick is the perfect blend of technician and musician all rolled into one! While he can improve a beginning to advanced player's technique, he also stresses the need to play musically. This is an important aspect to anyone wanting to 'up their game'. The fact that he is a truly nice person only adds to his other attributes. You can't find a better teacher in the Chicagoland area. Period!
Ryan J. Oak Park, IL

Drummer with 18 years of playing experience now offering lessons to students ages 7 and up. I tailor my lessons to fit the specific needs of each student. Lessons focus on fundamentals, timekeeping, feel, coordination, technique, reading, learning different styles of music, playing along to recordings and, of course, having fun! I work with students of all skill level and teach out of my centrally located studio in Oak Park.

About Ryan

*** Studio Equipment *** two drum kits to record students seating for parents *** Travel Equipment *** I do not provide drum kit, hardware, and cymbals for in home lessons. *** Specialties **Born and raised in Oak Park, Illinois, Ryan began studying the drum kit at the age of 16. Having previously played the violin and trombone, he always found himself tapping out rhythms on his violin as opposed to practicing the Suzuki method. It only made sense when Ryan picked up the drum sticks, as his older brother and a handful of other relatives were all drummers. It was obviously in his blood. Ryan dove head first into private lessons in high school, eventually studying with Glenn Kotche of Wilco. His studies with Glenn landed him a position as Drum Tech (and on a number of ...

Zachary H. Chicago, IL

I have been teaching drum set for five years and have worked to help students of all ages learn to play. As teacher I work with individual students to set goals for their playing and develop the skills necessary to meet those goals. Beyond learning basic beats for different styles I teach students the importance of a steady tempo, proper feel or swing for each style, and general musical concepts that will help students on any instrument and in any musical setting. Depending on the individual students goals I also teach students to rhythmic notation drum set charts.

As far as my experiences go, I have performed in the following types of ensembles: -Symphonic band -Wind ensemble -Philharmonic orchestra -Percussion ensemble -Jazz, ska, rock, and brass bands -WGI (Winter Guard International) -DCI (Drum Corps International) I have also completed two ...

I have toured with various bands in the US, Asia, and Europe and recently completed six months of teaching, studying, and performing music in Brazil.

Learning the fundamentals gives students the tools they need to be creative as possible. I can prepare students for school band and jazz band auditions as well as prepare them to play in a band of their own! *** Lesson Details *** I always spend a good part of each lesson working with students on ...

Learn the fundamentals and how to groove

Peter is one of the best drummers I know. I had the opportunity to take lessons from him a couple years ago and he gave me the tools I needed to feel comfortable and confident on a drumset. He stresses proper technique and rhythmic precision. He also showed me how to play grooves I wanted to learn. A great all around musician and teacher. Highly recommended.
