I believe teaching needs to be tailor-fit to the individual. There is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to private instruction. Our lessons will begin by me getting to know who you are as a student and as a musician. We will determine what you want out of music and your instrument, then we will set goals to get there. All of this will be a collaboration between me and you. I believe that music must be a self-driven endeavor. It is a vehicle for self-discovery.

That being said, I do believe in having a solid technical foundation, and I will push you to develop a daily practice routine. I try to begin every lesson with a rudimental warmup, regardless of age or experience. I also try to include free-play time, playing together, or playing along to music with every session to have fun and develop creativity. I believe fun, creativity, and human-connection is what music is all about, and technique is the work you put in to make those things happen. We will always end on a positive note ...

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.

I have really enjoyed taking drum lessons with Johnny Rabb. He is not only a highly accomplished and talented musician, but a phenomenal teacher as well. As an older adult student who has studied with other teachers, I find Johnny's teaching style to be very engaging, creative and fun. His style allows him to challenge his students, but not overwhelm them as they progress with their lessons. I highly recommend Johnny for any student who is looking to take their playing to the next level!

I believe that drumming is a universal practice for joy, health, communication and discipline available for anybody...any age...any brain...any body.

I enjoy helping other people find the groove within them, strive to improve, and adapt their drumming regimen to make "the work" of drum practice feel more like the "play" of sport and meditation ... fun, free, and refreshing

Jesey is FANTASTIC! I'm an adult beginner with no prior music experience. I've had a couple online lessons so far and I couldn't be more pleased. I've learned something new in every lesson and he's been helping me learn some of my favorite songs. He's great!

"Francisco is such a great teacher. He tailors his lessons to your needs and challenges you just enough. I took lessons with him for about 8 months, which ended when he moved to the west coast. Otherwise I would still be with him. But he taught me so much and still checks in to make sure I'm sticking with it months after our sessions have ended. He genuinely cares about his students and their love of music and he enjoys teaching and motivating others to play. I highly recommend Francisco as a teacher as he will get you where you want to be."
