I was surprised at how easy it was to connect with Aaron. His diving right in was fun as we got into playing music from the first moment.

Aaron knows how to work with kids. After 30 minutes my 6 yo came out confident and ready to play!! He doesn’t realize that he still is terrible because he at least knows one chord!! Lol!

Very helpful and informative instruction.

Hello potential students! I have been teaching music for over eight years, and love teaching as much as music itself.

Private Drum Teacher

Whether you're just starting out, wanting to learn Led Zeppelin, Foo Fighters, or even Taylor Swift repertoire, maybe you're preparing for band or college auditions, or just simply looking to broaden your playing with different styles like jazz, latin, etc., I am here to guide you and help you develop the necessary skills!

I have been teaching drumset for over 15 years. My lessons focus on applying technique and reading, with snare reading exercises and learning popular songs. Lessons will adjust according to the student's level, pace, and goals.

My goal for my students is to have an understanding on how to use their instrument, develop versatility, discover who they are as a musician, become independent learners, while having fun along the way!

My son really enjoys his lessons and likes how Joan helps him focus on technique.
John M.
Joan taught my son from first time to an advanced beginner. She was very patient and extremely helpful. My son was fully engaged in his lessons and always enjoyed his time with Joan. Joan was very dependable, always on time for lessons and always flexible with her scheduling. She also assisted in purchasing a drumset for my son. I would recommend Joan to anyone looking to learn the drums.

First lesson was great! We are looking forward to our future lessons with Joan.

Fun first lesson. Jared was ready on-time and figured out quickly where to begin working and also had very good integration with the computer, pulling up charts and sheet music and helping us follow along. We look forward to more lessons!

Marvin C.
I've had three banjo teachers over the past two and a half years. Judging by Jared's performance today, he's the best of the lot. The first banjo teacher expected too much too soon, and the second one started me out with the basics, as if I had never picked up a banjo before. Jared is starting our lessons at the right stage for where I am. He's patient and explains things well. If I had started with him two and a half years ago, I'd be a decent banjo player by now. Thanks, Jared!!!!!

"Matthew is a fantastic instructor and he has a lot of patients. I am a new drummer and he thought me and my two boys on how to drum and now after about a year we can actually enjoy drumming and we are having a blast. My older has special needs and I am so impressed that he will actually come and play the drums on his own now which would have never happened without Matthews teaching. My younger boy is doing so well too. We will continue to take lesson even with our busy schedules since we really enjoy our lessons with Matthew. Thank you Matthew."

"GREAT INSTRUCTOR!! I am 48yo and was apprehensive about trying to learn something new at my age. I've had three lessons thu far and have been enjoying this to the fullest. Rufus keeps the lessons fun and interestng by adding different assignments for me to work on throughout my week. The key is to practice; which, I have embraced and I actually like. I bought a drum set after my 2nd lesson. Rufus came to my house to help me set everything up and tune my drums. He blessed my drums by playing for a few minutes while I stood back and grinned like a 10yo. I jumped on next hoping my drums would sound the same as when he played (they didn't). But that's okay, they will someday. I will be a student with him for a while!!"

Josh is a motivational teacher - our son WANTED to practice each day and that is because of Josh's inspiration and modeling what it takes to be a great drummer. Our son gained both the confidence and ability to audition for an make it into 3 high school bands this year. He couldn't have done it without Josh.

"Great Teacher!

Andrew Brown is a great teacher! I didn't have any music experience when I signed up for my first class, but he was extremely patient and despite a lack of natural rhythm I learned a lot in every session. Most lessons would incorporate exercises, learning a new beat or technique, learning a song by reading music and learning a song by listening to it. I was never bored during one of his classes as the material was always challenging enough to keep my focus, but not too hard to make me feel frustrated.

I would recommend Andrew Brown to anyone who wants to learn the drums! He's a great teacher and a really nice person!"
