Zen is a wonderful teacher. I appreciate the calm way things are explained & there are no dumb questions! I had trouble navigating my new Mac & even that was okay with Zen. Thank you & looking forward to next week

Zen was amazing. He gave lessons to my 8 year old and was extremely patient, generous with his time, and on top of things during the lesson.

Would highly recommend.

WHAT YOU'LL GET WORKING WITH ME

Now accepting select drum students ages 10+ for live, one on one online lessons.

There's nothing more fulfilling than learning to play, and by studying with me, you'll get an incredible knowledge of the basics and advanced techniques of becoming a great drummer.

Whether your goal is to join your first band, lay down electronic beats for EDM, get better in your current band or church ministry, my goal is to help you excel quicker and better than you ever could by doing it alone.

I am a pretty serious drummer and accept students who are serious about their craft. You don't have to be incredible - but you do have to want to improve and have the dedication to study, practice, and perform. Oh, and we have a TON OF FUN along the way!

So, if this fits your idea of a teacher, please set up a no-risk intro pack of lessons. If you're not satisfied, or I'm not your cup of tea, TakeLessons offers a refund for your remaining lessons.

Johnny is over the top talented, and is the best teacher ever! He has the patience of a Saint, and is able to teach correct technique to young drummers. Highly recommend!!!
Wally
As a new drummer I struggle with basics. I can sit at the drums and bang a sound for the most part. Johnny is so wonderful. He takes the time to explain the music in notes, beats and segments. I am learning the art of music, not just banging the drums. Kudos Johnny...you rock!

I am a sax player and amateur drum enthusiast. Scott and I toured for a few years together.
He was always figuring things out in the van with his trusty air drumset. When he could finally sit down at his set, he would pretty much have the idea figured out and ready to apply to reality.
We would talk endlessly about various drum and rhythm topics and he very effortlessly talked me through techniques and ideas. I’ve learned a great deal from him.
On top of that, he is one of the kindest and most compassionate people I’ve ever met.
There’s a fire inside of him and it comes out through his playing and interpersonal relationships in a beautiful way.

Nikki
Scott is an enthusiastic and gifted music teacher´┐╝ with a wealth of experience that he generously shares.
We were looking for a flexible, knowledgeable, yet reliable teacher who would inspire our son to grow his own musical talent. We were blessed to find Scott, who fit those roles wonderfully. Our son enjoyed and benefited from the interactions with Scott. We recommend him without a doubt.
Bob
Scott is an incredibly knowledgeable drummer. He possesses a wealth of wisdom on the drums that he has gained through years of professional gigging experience "on the front lines" so to speak. A kind hearted fellow who's love of music comes through in everything he does. He can help you be a better musician; he can help you be a better person.

My son really enjoyed his first lesson. He was able to play a little right away, which made it more fun for him.

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.
Shirley L.
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.

"As an instructor, David exudes the perfect balance of amiability and intimidation. He will inspire you to work your absolute hardest without scaring you away. Personality-wise, he is that happy medium somewhere between Mr. Rogers and J.K. Simmons in Whiplash. I studied with David during my college years and 7+ years later I still utilize his concepts in everyday practice. There are many specific stories, ideas and exercises of his that have always stuck with me and come up quite often when I am working on something new or teaching a lesson or class of my own. Whether we were learning orchestral excerpts, 4-way independence, Bach fugues or just playing quarter notes with the metronome, I always left our lessons feeling highly motivated and anxious to practice. It's also great to have a teacher that can blow your mind with his own playing. It might be difficult for some teachers to get students into something like the tambourine or triangle but when he picked one up and casually played some insane rhythms and advanced techniques I was immediately inspired to learn to do the same. Not to mention his drum work on Matt Herskowitz's "Forget Me Not" - some of the things he does on that record still keep me up at night. I'm very grateful for my time as a student of David's and glad I can still learn from him as a friend and colleague!"

"Great teacher for our 8 year old!

Matt has taught our 8 yr old for about 8 months and he has learned so much! Though our son is a bit shy, Matt has been very patient, positive, and makes his lessons fun. He lets him know it's ok to make mistakes too which is very comforting to him. He is now able to play with his older brother who plays guitar. Matt worked with them together to teach them a song for their school variety show and they are so excited! He is friendly, always on time, and very passionate about teaching. He explains things clearly and gives him a few beats to work on before the next lesson. He loves drumming now:) We highly recommend him."
