John S.

Lancaster, OH

About John

I have been interested in drums for as long as I can remember. When I was very young I remember trying to imitate drummers from the bands I was listening to at the time. I had a toy field goal kicker that would kick a ball through the goal posts when I pressed down on the player's helmet. I remember taking the goal posts apart and using them as drumsticks. I would use those "drumsticks" to play on the side of my bed when listening to my favorite drummers. My interest in drumming hasn't diminished at all since those days.

I joined the school band program when I was in the fifth grade an
d I have played the drums for over 30 years in a variety of musical settings such as marching band, symphonic band, jazz band, worship team and home recording. A group of neighbors and schoolmates that I kept in touch with over the years contacted me sometime ago and asked me to record drum tracks for them. I'm privileged to have the opportunity to play on some of their albums.

I'm very thankful for the great drum instruction I have received over the years. In high school I studied with a drummer who played with musicians and bands such as The Ohio State University Jazz Ensemble, The Glenn Miller Orchestra, Woody Herman, Diane Schuur, Maynard Ferguson and Tony Bennett. I have no doubt that these lessons played a big role in me winning the 1987 Louis Armstrong Jazz Award in high school. I have also attended Capital University’s Summer Drumset Workshop and a Drum Fantasy Camp at Seton Hall University. Some of the instructors involved at these university events were performers/educators such as Steve Houghton, Ed Soph, Steve Smith and Dave Weckl.

Drum lessons really helped advance my understanding of music and drumming. I improved my reading, listening and technical skills and even began transcribing drum parts. I now use Sibelius software for transcriptions. I enjoy passing along to students what I've learned from my excellent teachers and would be happy to help with just about any style of music (Rock, Blues, Country, Jazz, Latin, etc.).

*** Lesson Details ***
My goal is to help each student realize their personal goals in drumming. I help them do that by building a good foundation and then adding to that foundation. Building the foundation can include method books, rudiments, playing with a metronome and developing reading skills. After this foundation has been built we then use these skills to, most importantly, make some music. We will listen to and analyze the drumming of many important players and incorporate their innovations into our own musical personalities.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have a drum set in a finished basement with seating for parents available.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can bring method books, but the student will need to have everything else (instrument, sticks, stereo with headphones, etc.). A smoke-free environment will also need to be available.

*** Specialties ***
I grew up with rock music for the most part but over the years I've tried to develop competency with as many musical styles as possible (Rock, Blues, Jazz, Latin, Country, R&B, Reggae, Motown, etc.).

First thing,John and his family are very nice people.Being a little older person looking to play as a hobby. I still knew that in order to even be a decent drummer, you have to learn the fundamentals first.John in my opinion is like a professor of the drums.Like anything worth anything in life,it takes lots of hard work and practice in order to come close to perfection.John has the knowledge to give you all the tools that you need to strive towards that perfection.

John is a wonderful drum instructor. I was very interested in learning the underlying drum structure and rudiments before progressing on into other complicated drum techniques. His teaching style is perfect for everyone from a beginner to an advanced player. He has an in depth knowledge of the drumming industry from his own personal experiences and from teaching as well. He is able to communicate in such a way that is very easy to understand for both the lessons and the practice homework. I highly recommend John!

My teenager has had lessons with Jacob for 3 years, first guitar, then piano. He has a great personality and is a very encouraging teacher. She never once wanted to quit and never complained about going to the lessons, even with an otherwise very busy schedule, which is a testament to him and his teaching. He is a very dedicated and talented musician, and was always willing to work with whatever songs she wanted to learn. I would highly recommend him for any age kid or adult.

Lydia taught my daughter both harp and piano for 8 years. She is an excellent teacher. I could not have asked for better. Lydia is extremely musical, and is professional, yet down-to-earth, kind and friendly. She is very patient and has pleasant to be around. She has recorded CD's of her harp music, has played with orchestras, and has attended many music study programs. Her musical ability is superior and she LOVES to share her the joy of playing both harp and piano to others. Lydia is also flexible with the pieces she teaches. She is very good at teaching the classical pieces and exercises, but also can teach pop and other genres. She has two recitals a year which are in a relaxed atmosphere but still give the student the performance experience. GREAT TEACHER!

Years ago, Lydia was kind enough to try Skype lessons with us, given we are 8-9 hours away from her. We sought a Bible believing, Faith-oriented Christian Harp teacher and she was it! We have been delighted with her teaching, her love for music and for working with the students. We have had the privilege of watching her play in the Orchestra and, traveling the 8-ish hours for Spring and Fall recital and hearing her play with the students and encourage the students on their playing in the recitals. She even recently coached us through a pedal harp purchase and her help was invaluable. We would highly recommend her to anyone looking for piano and or Harp instruction.

Szu-Yu is very knowledgeable and skilled, everything stated about her is correct. I am very please that she is willing to work with me and discuss how I play, I am almost 60 years old and can play some. She is not judgmental but very positive and encouraging. She is not intimidated by my age, (my daughter is older). She knows her stuff and is very confident.
We meet at a practice facility in a college, that is fun and interesting.
My money is being well spent and I am learning things that should help me to grow and enjoy the piano, and possible reach a personal goal to be able to play at church.

My name is Trevor and I'm in 8th grade. My dad taught Brad's college racquetball class so I met him before our first lesson. He is a cool guy and helped me learn new drum parts on some of my favorite songs. He likes to break everything down and it helps a lot. I would recommend Brad to any drummer who is just starting out or is already really good.
