Great teacher and very patient, he cared about what he was doing, Thanks Zaid!

Zaid is knowledgeable and dedicated instructor. He has taught my daughter for at least two years who had no experience and I feel that she has progressed faster than I think she would have at any typical music place.
The organization, and structure of the lessons are well planned and easy to follow.

Hi, I'm Jeremiah! I've been playing drums/percussion since I was 11 years old. I'm 23 now with a BM in Percussion Performance and I love playing all types of music! Currently I:
• gig with local artists that come from a range of genres: from jazz to pop to rock to folk
• also have experience playing percussion in symphony orchestras/concert bands
• have also held the drum/percussion seat for 14 different musicals
If any or all of those areas are of interest to you, I'd love to see if we'd make a good match! Lessons would be catered to the goals of each student. I'm super excited to share what I've learned (and am still learning) with beginning/intermediate students that love the thrill and challenge that comes from performing live music, no matter what form that takes.

About Jeremiah

Hi! I'm a freelance drummer/percussionist based in Chicagoland. In the spring of 2019, I graduated from Coe College with a Bachelor of Music degree in Percussion Performance. These days, I'm very happy to have the opportunity to play drums with various artists that span a multitude of genres: D

Online Drum Teacher

I have been teaching drums since 2003, and I start my students using The Drumset Musician, by Rick Mattingly and Rod Morgenstein. I also choose materials, from my extensive library, to address the needs of each individual. I am familiar with rock, country, blues, jazz, and world grooves, as well as marching band and orchestra. I teach the components of and purposes of voices within the set, proper grip, reading music, coordination, and feel. I also teach students how to analyze and map songs, so they can excel in a band setting. If a student is wanting to be in marching and symphonic bands, I can prepare them for those pursuits, as well. I have two sets in my studio, as well as abundant hand and auxiliary percussion instruments.

About Tracy

I have been playing the drum set in various bands since 2001. I have also been playing with the OKC Community Orchestra since 2009. I have played in symphonic and jazz bands and a percussion ensemble. I have taught a percussion class, private lessons, and I have been a full time music teacher in

"WE LOVE OUR DRUM INSTRUCTOR! My son was an extremely high energy very distracted five year old when we started lessons with Mr. Al. Let's just say that my son is not an easy student, but our son had already developed an obsessive attachment to music, most intensely to drums. We expected someone would be able to teach him drums, but we also got someone who is patient, flexible, understanding, and always respectful and kind to our son. We see Mr. Al in his home studio, and at now at seven years old, Joey's skill has definitely progressed. In fact, his learning has a momentum that our entire family can see. But Mr. Al has given Joey so much more than just that. Joey's love of music has flourished beyond measure. Joey now tells Mr. Al that he loves him after every lesson, WOW! We have been so pleased that my seventeen year old daughter now also takes lessons with Mr. Al too. Mr. Al is the perfect instructor for us. My kids think he's cool, and we think he's just fantastic all the way around!"

Want to play faster and improve your drum technique? Try these tips from Detroit, MI teacher Joshua J. to make your drum practice more effective. When it comes to learning drums, there are five questions you should ask yourself: 1. What am I learning and why? 2. Is this natural or forced? (is it relaxed or tense?) 3. Is it easy as pie? If not, then why? 4. Am I making progress? 5. Does it sound the way I want it to? Speed is a big thing for drummers. It’s impressive and it jus …
