*** Lesson Details ***
I've always thought that learning should be fun. I consistently try to bring a creative and laid-back approach to teaching drums. After the first or second lesson, most students realize that I don't take myself too seriously. Sometimes certain techniques or exercises can be tiresome or even boring. When this occurs, I ...

Brian's experience and passion for drumming become apparent during the first lesson. He is a talented musician and a wonderful teacher, adjusting the pace of each lesson to match your needs and your level of skill. His ability to play numerous styles makes him an ideal teacher for those up and coming drummers who don't want to get locked into playing one particular type of music. I've been playing drums for as long as Brian has, but even with all of my experience he has still helped me branch out and incorporate new techniques into my repertoire. Whether you are a beginner, looking to learn the basics, or an experienced drummer, looking to hone your skills in a particular area, Brian is a great teacher to turn to!

Great teacher. It's not about rushing you through the lesson, its about making sure you're learning WHAT it is you're supposed to. If you are looking for someone with patience, knowledge, that can teach well, and play even better, quit lookin'.

Brian is one of the most gifted drummers I've ever met. His teaching style is extremely relaxed. Every time I meet with him, he puts me at ease. Brian makes learning an instrument fun. His approach is direct and straight to the point. He's also very perceptive and focuses specifically on what he feels I am having trouble with the most. I have been taking lessons from Brian for over a year now, and I cannot believe how much I have grown as a musician. I am even playing in front of my friends now. My confidence is high and owe it all to Brian!
Jared J. Burbank, CA

Drumset only. I can teach students a variety of basic drum grooves in a variety of styles and can help students understand how to incorporate fills into their playing. I can also teach reading basics.

About Jared

I have been happily playing music for over half of my life and it has always been the light in my day. Now it is my hope to shed that same light onto you or your child. I am a very friendly and fun teacher with a great deal of professionalism and patience, even more importantly I love teaching and music with a passion.

I have been playing an instrument since the 4th grade (cello) and, as I learned how music works, was slowly able to pick-up a greater variety instruments with an increasing degree of ease. In high school, I decided to pick-up the guitar just to "have fun and rock out". I joined a band, played in the high school orchestra, joined the high school jazz band and began to practice songwriting and cover songs. Still, it was not until after I took my first class on ...

Jared has been helping my 14-year old daughter become passionate about playing cello again. My daughter had taken years of conventional school lessons and had all but given up due to boredom and monotony. She has only had a couple of lesson from Jared but so far, so good. Even the tone in my daughter's voice regarding her cello has improved so much. She sounds excited and proud regarding playing and I am so glad!

So, Jared is a one-of-a kind person who is able to tailor his craft to you. He is observant and watches you carefully, "tuning" his coaching to exactly what you need, when you need it. He is affable and easy to learn from. As if that isn't enough, he is - hands down - an excellent musician. He is a pioneer, willing to stretch to use technology to make things work for his students. Recently we managed a Bossa duet (guitar and cello) via Skype. He is exceptional and has my highest recommendation.

Focus on rudiments, fundamentals, technique. Snare solos, Timpani (if available), marching snare and bass techniques and fundamentals.

Unfortunately, I can not offer drum lessons in studio (my location) at the moment.

I felt I had a good grasp on Modern history until my eyes were opened to facts that I did not know existed. Wonderful illustrations, and organization and research. Wonderful lesson. Can't wait for next session!

Basics of drumming? Rhythms? Play with songs? Rock? Hip-hop?

I began playing drums in 1999, teaching myself in the garage. I took 2 years of drum classes in college and performed in a nationally touring band as a drummer. I have taught drums to a wide variety of students with a wide variety of musical interests.

About Jason

I've been playing music for over 20 years. I've been teaching for over 10 years. My main instrument is guitar but I also play and teach piano, drums, uke and bass. I play with two acts in the area: Nataly Lola (acoustic covers) and We Were Superheroes (original rock). I am constantly listening to new alternative music (98.7 and AltNation) as well as learning the classics for the cover band. I never have a bias for a song and am always surprised when the pop song on the radio is actually quite clever when broken down to its roots. As a teacher I cater to the student. I've taught Old Country, Jazz Theory, New Metal, Russian Ska (yup!) and anything else that you want to learn.

Kurt B. Van Nuys, CA

I can teach beginner/intermediate drum lessons. Subjects would include groove (all important!), timing, ensemble techniques/dynamics, and reading.

About Kurt

I hold a bachelor's degree in electric bass performance from Musicians Institute in Hollywood. I also have national as well as international touring experience playing for a platinum selling artist with a major label. I also worked at MI as a teachers assistant helping to run performance based classes, as well as helping students improve their chart writing and song writing skills. I teach real world principles in electric bass playing, and am able to teach students that only want to play for fun, or those who seek professional work in the industry.
