Private Drum Teacher

I attended Berklee College of Music with drum set as my principal instrument. Drumming is a huge passion of mine and I have an appreciation for many genres. From pop to death metal, I love playing it all and want to teach you how to engage with your favorite music! I can teach you a classical snare piece, or we can learn math rock. I can get you comfortable behind a kit so that you can play the music that moves you! PLEASE NOTE: I do not have a drum set at my studio, all lessons would need to be in-home.

Online Drum Teacher

I teach with an encouraging, positive mentality that will foster fun and a love for the drums! For beginners, I start from the ground up with proper technique, rudiments, musicality, all while ensuring room for creativity and curiosity.

After that, and for drummers with a little more experience, you'll learn to:
-Use rudiments in a musical and practical way on the kit
-Build your drum vocabulary
-Play musically and with purpose
-Read and write music
-Write fast charts for gigging

I teach out of my music studio in my home, a roomy and professional space with a beautiful kit to play on, or online.

From day one, Cassie has not only been enthusiastic about music, but also about creating a relationship with my daughter. I can visibly see progress in my daughter's understanding of rhythm in what we listen to and she loves to create games around the subject. We look forward to an ongoing relationship with Cassie.

We love Cassie! My son, who struggles to focus, loves his time with her...from learning rudiments to playing the music that HE loves. She’s a fantastic drummer AND teacher!

"Fanstastic teacher for my 7-year-old little drummer!

We originally chose Jesse because we found out he could teach just about any instrument and my 7-year-old son wasn't sure about what he wanted to play. On the first class he tried the drums, and he never wanted to let it go. My son is a particularly challenging student because he is highly distractible, and Jesse was extremely patient and very organized/methodic with him, and therefore able to keep him on track. My husband plays in a band, and we both think Jesse is a super talented teacher who offers lessons with a great balance between fun and actual learning of good musical habits. In less that a month my son was feeling confident enough to play in front of the camera and send family members video samples of his new drummer self! We couldn't be happier."
