Jason is an AMAZING TEACHER!!! He is so fun and knowledgeable. I found him on Instagram. I was always admiring his guitar playing whenever I saw his videos. I reached out to him and I took my first lesson last week via Skype since I'm living in a different state. I'm looking forward to what he is gonna teach me next! Thank you so much Jason!

I took several lessons with Jason and he is a very knowledgeable guitar teacher and he makes the learning experience a good one. He breaks down the teaching experience so even the most beginning student can understand it and he caters to his students individual needs.

Private Drum Teacher

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

I'm inspired to impart a vibrant love for the art of drumming to my students. I value giving students a strong foundation in the fundamentals of rhythm, technique and all styles of music, as well as exploring the individual and creative interests of each of my students.

I have degree in Music Education from CU Boulder (2012) with a special interest in jazz studies, improvisation and classical percussion. I also have thorough experience with traditional Indian spiritual music known as kirtan. I have taught middle school music in Denver public schools as well as privately for ages ranging 7-30. Studied with various professional musicians around Colorado, including Paul Romaine, Mike Marlier, Brad Goode, John Gunther and Doug Walter.

All in all, music is an art form meant for cultivating the human spirit and enriching life. My desire is to impart this gift to my students through the art form of drums, rhythm and creativity.

About Bryan

John is fantastic teacher and very knowledgeable about music. He has a great rapport with his students. My daughter is very enthusiastic about her drum lessons with John every week and always looks forward to it. I would highly recommend John to anyone interested in music lessons.

Not only is John an off-the-charts professional drummer, he's a fantastic human being as well! He loves music and it comes through in the lessons! In 35 years of playing and hanging around wannabees, John is the genuine musician! Anyone really wanting to learn correctly needs John. I recommend him 100%.

Sam is an awesome teacher. His style of teaching makes learning the music AND the theory behind it a lot of fun! One of his best abilities is that he can understand questions really well. I have a lot of long, crazy, seemingly nonsensical, confusing, rambling questions, and he is able to ANSWER them all! I am continually astounded! He's assisted me in making a lot of progress, because of that skill, and others, such as patience and articulation, and demonstration. I would recommend him.
S
Sam is a fantastic drum instructor! He has the expertise to teach both beginners (like my child) and advanced students. His personality is winsome and friendly, firm yet kind. He explains music theory in an extremely accessible way - convincing his student why the theory “stuff” makes musical expression even more fun.
Tiffany
Sam is an amazing teacher! He’s so easy going (so my kids feel comfortable, able to ask questions and ask for input). This is great for confidence building! He’s also extremely knowledgeable and able to inspire the creative artist within your child. He gives concrete, helpful instructions on how to improve and practice each week. My kids always have a plan for their week which makes improvement a no-brainer. My kids have improved by leaps and bounds since taking lessons from Sam. They love the skill and artistry they are attaining and love their lessons from Sam. Great guy, great teacher. You will not be disappointed!!!

"Excellent!

I started learning drums from Colin starting June 2013. I am a beginner and Colin was my first drum teacher.

I really liked the way Colin provided step by step guidance. He has great patience when it comes to work with beginner like me. I am really glad I learnt under his guidance. He was very encouraging which is really helpful especially at the beginning.

Colin teaches how to do and play things right. I learnt really cool beats from him in my first set of lessons. Overall it was fun experience.

I would definitely recommend Colin.

And thanks a ton to Colin for being such an excellent instructor..."
