Overview

Hi I'm a 27 year old professional musician that has worked hard to become a first call drummer for performance, instruction, and studio session work in the Atlanta area. Over the past 5 years I have toured nationally, recorded with countless regional, national and local artists, and have gained a positive reputation in the Atlanta community as a unique, innovative, and passionate drum teacher. I studied music at The University of Mississippi and I am qualified to teach numerous styles including Rock, Pop, Hip Hop, Jazz, Electronica, World and many others. I have years of experience teaching private and group lessons (I have been a Camp Counselor in Summer music programs). I offer inspired beginning drummers of all ages the chance to learn the art of drum set playing within a basic, relaxed, and fun context.

*** Studio Equipment ***
My drum studio includes 2 drum kits and percussion instruments to help aid in visual learning!

*** Travel Equipment ***
For student's home lessons I require at least one drum set (minimum of two piece), they must own a pair of drum sticks.

*** Specialties ***
27 year old professional musician Casey has been rising as a first call drummer for performance, instruction, and studio session work in the Atlanta area over the past 5 years. Within that short time, Casey has toured the country several times over, recorded with countless regional, national and local artists, and has gained a positive reputation in the Atlanta community as a unique, innovative, and passionate drum teacher. Based within a fun, relaxed context, Casey has developed a natural teaching method that focuses on learning and understanding the building blocks of drum set playing, familiarizing and connecting these building blocks, and applying them to individual expression. He has the ability to take nearly anyone without prior drum set or rhythmic experience, and, within days, turn them into beat playing drummers. His approach focuses on: HAVING FUN, building an understanding and relationship with each drum, the basic rudimentary foundation of drumming, how to approach the drums, hold the sticks, set up the drums, and tune the drums, basic mechanical techniques, development of each limb, learning how to read basic drum charts and play to them, learning and playing the most significant beats and patterns in the history of drum set, and gaining the ability to effectively teach oneself how to improve as a drummer.

Awesome teacher

Having no previous experience with drums and playing along with my favorite songs in few weeks is pretty amazing. Casey is easygoing and has a great ability to teach in a fun way. I definitely enjoy learning from this skilled musician!

Great teacher with a lot of passion!!

I started taking lessons with Casey about 8 months ago. He is the third drum teacher I've had and I definitely won't be looking for another one! He has a lot of patience but is always striving to make me work harder and be a better musician. He is passionate about what he does and it shows! I've learned and grown as a musician significantly faster with Casey than any of my previous teachers. He makes the hard work fun! I would absolutely recommend him to beginners and intermediate players as well! He is a lot of fun and he's flexible! Try him out, you'll be rockin' in no time!

Passionate & Reliable

Casey has been an amazing drum teacher. He understands my style of music and motivates me to become a better performer. I've improved lightyears since taking lessons fro him. He always has a positive attitude and is extremely reliable and punctual, which can be very rare in the music industry. I am so happy I met Casey!

Casey is professional and makes learing easy and fun.

Casey is an amazing teacher. I have ZERO musical talent and Casey had me playing songs within a week. He makes learning fun and very easy. He is very knowledgeable not to mention a pretty sick drummer.
I started taking drum lessons just to check it out... and I keep coming back to learn more.
If you want a very relaxed and good time while learning to play. Casey is your guy.

Outstanding Drum Instructor

Casey has been instructing our 9-year old son for over a year. He is an outstanding drum instructor and I highly recommend him. Casey goes above and beyond as an instructor and his passion for music AND teaching is always evident. Casey connected with our son by taking the time and effort to get to know him to understand how he learns and what he likes. He adapts his approach to ensure our son is having fun while learning. Best of all, the results are tangible ... our son enjoys his lessons, looks forward to practicing, and has learned how to play and read music. I would not hesitate in the least in hiring Casey as an instructor.

Fun and Effective!

I thought I had no rhythm. I never played drums. After a couple hours with Casey I can play rock beats and even at least play to some songs on my Ipod. Great teacher!!!
