Private Drum Teacher

I've been playing drums for almost 20 years and it is an integral part of my life. I've been teaching for 3 years and have watched students grow from beginners to beast-status. I teach all different styles: rock, jazz, Afro-Cuban, rudiments, you name it. Time to rock!

I am brand new to music production and Scott broke everything down very easily for me. He also gave me great recommendations on starter kit equipment to purchase that was not too expensive.
Aidan
I had a good time with Scott as my coach and first time playing on a drum set! I hope to continue more lessons and maybe do some studio work later.
He showed me basic techniques that I could understand and practice with music. I am happy that I met him.
Jeff
Scott is amazing! He helped teach me the basics of Ableton, over Skype. I was coming from Logic and needed a quick course. I learned how to have a faster workflow and tons of cool shortcuts! Also he is a very chill guy and easy to get along with. I highly recommend Scott if your looking to take your music production, and mixing/mastering skills to the next level.

About Matt

With most of my music students, we focus on several key areas to ensure success of overall technique and knowledge: WARM-UPs, SCALES, MUSIC THEORY, SIGHT-READING, and PREPARED SONGS. I tailor my approach and style to each student. Although I'm very detail-oriented with lessons and followup, I'm

Matt is an excellent teacher. He provided acoustic guitar and keyboard lessons for my 11 year old son and drum lessons to my 9 year old daughter. He always brought all the equipment needed for a successful learning environment and was interactive with each child. I highly recommend Matt as a music teacher for any instrument because his professionalism, kindness and patience toward my children was alway evident.
Wendy
Matt is an exceptional musician. His knowledge of a variety of music genres, ability to sight read and transpose into any key is extraordinary and makes him the accompanist of choice. As a man of faith, he inspires others to celebrate music as a gift from God, that should never be taken for granted.
Ling
Matt has the ability to keep his students interested in their music while bringing out their appreciation and musical creativity. I would highly recommend him as an instructor no matter the age of the student.

Online Drum Teacher

Drums are fun. That's why I play and I'm willing to bet it's why you want to learn how to play. Whether you are a complete beginner, someone who is looking to improve their weaknesses, or someone looking for the freedom to play and create with out without the structure of a song, in my lessons you will find a curriculum focused on the foundational techniques, systems, and concepts that will allow you to have a deep understanding of what it is that you are doing, which in turn will open the door for you to explore your own musical creativity as you progress.

I am a Berklee College of Music graduate and have been teaching professionally since 2011. I have been teaching online lessons since 2017. If you're ready to get started let's set some lessons up! I'm looking forward to meeting you.

About Victor

I began my drumming journey in 1998, when I received a pair of drumsticks from my aunt for Christmas. After I had proved to my parents my commitment by ruthlessly beating their couch every day, they signed me up for 5th grade band, with private lessons soon to follow. I started my first band in t

Chris
The short version: Nothing but good things to say. I highly recommend Victor!

The longer version:
Victor is a top notch drummer and an excellent teacher! I'm a beginner that has been taking lessons with Victor since the end of 2019 and it's been a lot of fun. He keeps the lessons moving to make the best use of the time in each session, but will take as much time as needed to answer questions and explain anything I'm having trouble with, or not quite grasping. He will consistently spot the smallest of details in my technique that need work, as well as when I'm getting something right to reinforce the proper way to do things.

Victor has also been quick to respond to any questions I've emailed him between lessons. Anything from drum setup, requests to transcribe a song, or just clarifications on something from our last lesson.

We started with in-person lessons but switched to online once COVID hit. I was a little unsure about making that switch but decided to give it a try. Once I did, I realized it was not a big deal, and that the quality was right up there with the in-person lessons.

Again, I'd highly recommend Victor!
Michael
Victor is encouraging, patient, thoughtful, punctual, and thorough during his lessons and off the clock. An exceedingly professional instructor that had to make a lot of changes during COVID but didn't have a single hitch in his lessons, even after switching completely online. I've had other music teachers for guitar and I guarantee if they were half as good as Victor, I would still be playing. I can't recommend him enough.
Nic
I started drumming at 48yo with no prior experience. Victor's lessons are fantastic. He is incredibly patient, explains concepts and techniques very well, and his lesson structure is fun and guarantees improvement.

Because I am a beginner, Victor's lesson path focuses on technique to ensure a good grounding. However, he also works on songs with me, to include transcribing songs for me at a level that I can play.

Victor is very enthusiastic and clearly loves teaching. His prices are extremely reasonable. Due to COVID, we now do online lessons and they are as effective and enjoyable as in-person lessons.

I cannot recommend Victor highly enough!

Great first lesson! I know nothing about music and was a bit scared, but Richard made it easy to understand. I am excited to continue playing. Thank you!

"Noam is an excellent drum tutor!

He is so knowledgeable about the drums and passionate about sharing that knowledge. His lessons are well structured to make the most of the time available to practice existing skills and learn new techniques, as well as being fun!

He takes the time to really focus on your existing technique in order to iron out any bad habits and he breaks down new techniques in a simple and easy to learn manner.

Highly recommended!"

"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!"

"I took many lessons with Francisco after a period of relative inactivity from playing drums on a consistent basis. I had been playing for years, but had unfortunately become rusty and out of practice at the time. Francisco helped me build my chops back up, and introduced me to new unique concepts in phrasing, approaching grooves, technique, and much more. Francisco's down-to-earth and very friendly personality, combined with his obvious passion for drums and percussion, made every lesson an event I looked forward to. He gave me a lot to think about each lesson, providing me with great musical concepts that can be studied for life. Francisco isn't a teacher who only thrives teaching beginners. As a drummer for several years with lots of performing experience, he still managed to significantly help improve my playing and reignite my spark in drumming. Thanks, dude"
