Do you have two left arms and two left feet (or two rights of each if you're left-handed), and have no idea how to coordinate behind your drumset?

Do you want to be able to accurately listen to a song and "play it" on your steering wheel as you drive?

Do you constantly have trouble maintaining speed, slowing down or speeding up for no reason?

How about wanting to go all-out and learning those crazy double-bass parts and snare rolls popular in today's extreme metal?

I require a practice pad for lessons to learn rudiments and coordination techniques, even if it's just a mouse pad taped to a heavy book to start with. If you continue taking lessons, I can recommend the best practice pad for you.

I typically will teach and write drums using a combination of tablature and standard sheet music. Tablature a simple set of lines and X marks that are much easier to read, and once learned will instantly give you access to thousands of songs.

You'll learn how to keep time with ...

Nathan is an excellent teacher. He is very clear in his explanations and helped me to better understand guitar chords, strumming patterns and fingering. He gave me several exercises to work on in the coming weeks. I am looking forward to my next class.

Learning a lot about the guitar

I started out with no experience playing guitar. Within a few weeks Stevie has taught much of the fundamentals. I am now feeling confident as I play my instrument.

He's always on time and has excellent communication skills.

I would definitely recommend Stevie to anyone interested in learning about music.

As well as having a Bachelor's Degree from a prominently known Jazz school. Perry has taken from some of the top "name" drummers in the business. This is essentially part of lesson time-but worth mentioning. Well over twenty years of gigging and still doing it. Five years of around 270 dates a year on tour (yes on a tour bus-and planes).He specializes in getting students to sound good and be confident on their instruments- so they can- have fun, and make music, and play with other musicians and record their own music.

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 know how daunting it can be to learn an instrument. Especially drums, since it can look so intimidating to see someone playing them at a high level. Pair that intimidation with a boring approach to subjects like technique, and you can often times get students losing their motivation because they

"Both my daughter and son love taking lessons from Carmen. Carmen’s fun class and love of drum drew out their interest in drum from the very beginning. Carmen is always prompt, and her lessons are organized and a lot of fun. She also provides clear practice instructions to students and parents. Outside of lesson time, Carmen found us a drum set and set it up for us. Because my son is young and small, she also found him chair and stands that could adjust low in height. We feel very lucky to have Carmen as our drum teacher."

"My son Cooper, now 13, began lessons with Brandon 2 1/2 years ago. He had never held a set of drumsticks but was interested in playing. Brandons ‘ease in’ make-it-fun approach is a complete winning combination for the student. Brandons ability to also read the student and know when to challenge them has been a key success factor for my son.

Who I have now is a 13 year old boy who practices 2 hours a day minimum, a passion for all things drum related, growing proficiency in theory and varying styles of music and most importantly a young confident musician who regularly plays in front of dozens if not hundreds of people.

I couldn’t have hand picked a better instructor for my kid...."

But then Corey got me switched on to a couple of method books and practice routines that kicked me up to a whole new level! Everyone in my band could tell the difference, and drumming is fun and exciting for me again. 5/5 would recommend Corey to any level of drummer looking to grow!"

"Excellent teacher--highly recommended

We are so glad we found Eric! After trying (and failing) with two other drum coaches who lacked a crucial requirement--in one case, depth of knowledge, and in another case, patience--my son has been taught by Eric for three years and has become an excellent drummer. Eric is highly knowledgeable, very patient, and a great communicator. He is the best music teacher we've found (and that includes three music teachers we used for another child, who took lessons for several instruments). Eric is also very knowledgeable about several other instruments. You cannot find a better music teacher than Eric!"
