I have experience teaching drummers of all ages and all experience levels. Beginners and advanced students are welcome. I like to set realistic expectations based on each student's situation/schedule and level.

I teach beginner to intermediate drums students who want to work up to more advanced playing.
Hello! I'm Jamie, and I love music! I started teaching drum lessons to kids around my neighborhood when I was in high school, and have kept doing so on-and-off for the past several years. I like to focus on giving each student a strong understanding of the basics of drums and drum set playing (theory, notation, rhythm, grooves, beats, etc.), and play to each students strengths and interests. I like to think of my self as a big, bearded man-child, so kids like me, and I like them. As for guitar, I am mostly self-taught. I took a beginner course in high school, and have been learning along the way on my own ever since. I play rhythm guitar, and I like to think that my drumming informs my guitar playing to a great extent. I am very groove-oriented, rhythm is what gets me going!
When you have rhythm....who needs music? The drum is the most fun of all, no blowing, plucking, or bowing...just beat on it! There is literally rhythm everywhere at all times, and I can help you play along.
As a graduate of University of Memphis (Bachelor of Music, composition/percussion, 1983), I have since been a professional musician for over thirty years, performing in 49 out of 50 United States, Canada, U.K., Japan, Malaysia, and Singapore, and on over 100 nationally released recordings. I believe everyone has music inside that needs to be nurtured and shared, so I began teaching contemporary keyboard lessons privately in upstate New York starting in 2010. In 2012 I was invited to be the main keyboard teacher at the Paul Green Rock Academy in Woodstock NY, whose namesake was the original founder of the School of Rock franchise, and within the first year helped to quadruple the student body, while guiding them through learning the demanding music of Yes, Queen, and Frank Zappa. Now ...

I consider myself a coach rather than a teacher. Rhythm is about breathing, posture, and attitude! Play like you mean it.
I base a lot of my teaching in the essentials like rudiments, the Moelor hand technique, relaxed stick control, independence, feels etc. This approach allows the drumming muscles and mind to work with multiple styles.
I instruct using songs and exercises. I will guide you whatever way you choose to go!
Hi I'm Aaron! I started out playing drums to my brother's Led Zeppelin tapes and my dad's soul record collection. My first ever private lesson I remember learning some awesome pointers to play the song "I feel good" by James Brown. I remember that day I felt empowered as a player. Like I had what it takes. And I was given some knowledge of how to get me there. Every student has an ambition to play a certain way. To have a certain THING. I help guide them with skills and techniques to reach those goals. I'm not just a teacher, I'm a drum coach. Not only will you be learning the essentials, rudiments, hand technique, feel & timing, etc, But you will also be taking home a different perspective, posture, and attitude to playing the drums. I've toured and recorded for over 10 years
