Private Percussion Teacher

Percussion is so much more than drums. If you are wanting a comprehensive beginners guide to playing percussion. I can help you with posture, sticking, and giving you the fundamentals needed to have an awesome start to your percussion playing. These skills transfer to all percussion instruments, including drum set. I would recommend finding a percussion teacher who plays percussion primarily.

Perry knows his stuff! His instruction and book have helped me become a solid drummer. I look forward to learning more from this talented musician. Thank you Perry!

Didn't think online drum lessons would work, but they do and I am thrilled I found Perry as my teacher! His Drum Control book is the perfect guide and I am improving with every lesson. Thanks Perry!
Gerry
Returning to drums after several years, I found that the "Drum Control" book Perry created and wrote really cleaned up my technique and got me going again with the essential tools I needed. I can't believe how easy it was with this great book. The combination of his teaching and book got me rockin' in no time! Perry is a real pro and knows what he's doing. I am learning from the best! Thanks Perry!

I want to update an erroneous review I apparently accidentally made a few months ago. 1 star for Mr. Charles?? Never!

My 8 year-old son looks forward to his lesson with Mr. Charles every week. I was a little nervous about having a 45 minute lesson - but Mr. Charles keeps my son fully engaged and excited the entire time.

Mr. Charles quickly accessed my son's tendencies/needs and has set him up on a track that is a good balance of enjoyment and growth. We look forward to many more lessons with Mr. Charles.

My son is three lessons in with Doug. He has enjoyed them. Doug explains things to him, jokes around with him, and keeps the lessons fun. He understands that my son is a beginner and focuses the lessons accordingly. We are pleased with the instruction.

To the extent of what I learned in my experience, Andrew is a great percussion teacher for students looking to join a band or marching band. He obviously had a great amount of knowledge and experience with the instrument itself but also the teaching of it. By the end of the first lesson we had already moved to patterns with 8 strikes on each hand and was presented with an arsenal of other exercises for afterwards to find a rate of improvement when given time. He is a very patient teacher and is sensitive to mistakes and which ones to focus on. I could safely recommend him to any of my friends who are also into percussion, and can speak from experience that any nervousness of getting a new teacher quickly dissolves after the first lesson. Great teacher.

"Kevin asked pertinent questions about my background and used that information to tailor the first lesson. He went beyond the scheduled 30 minutes to provide a complete and coherent beginning to my studies: the extra time did not upset my schedule and I appreciated his going beyond to get me off to a good start. Kevin had a lot of stuff to present yet allowed me to interrupt with questions, which he knowledgeably answered. His personality is relaxed and friendly. Observing him with another student before my lesson, I saw that he offered criticism considerately.
My first lesson was a good experience (4 stars). I don't know if he is the best ever (5 stars), but he must be darn close."

"Mariano was an amazing percussion and drum set teacher. His lessons were engaging and productive, and he was always able to communicate an idea or musical concept in a way that I was able to understand and connect with. After about 2 years of lessons I was accepted into the Orange County School of the Arts for percussion and I owe my success to the lessons I took with Mariano. I continued lessening throughout high school and my skill level contined to grow. What I loved about Mariano's teaching was his unique ability to take very simple exercises and make them more difficult and therefore much more beneficial. Along with stressing the importance of basic technique, he would constantly inteoduce me to new things - Afro beats, traditional grip, Latin beats, new ways to sight read, and 4 mallet marimba technique. I would highly suggest taking lessons with Mariano if you are looking for a fun, encouraging teacher who has lots of experience with a variety of percussion performance!"

With her kind, friendly, patient teaching style, he was immediately comfortable and learned quickly. With her guidance, 3 years later he is doing great things in high school! Yulia is an absolute gem — a professional who is also a great teacher. We would give her 6 or 7 stars if we could!!"

She moved at a pace that worked for me, and I already feel as though I have learned some basics. I'm excited to continue my lessons with her!"
