My son and I take lessons from "Mr. Matt." He is always enthusiastic and supportive even if we're not the most musically talented. We love his mix of basic essentials, music style and theory, and plain rocking out to songs we pick that he shows us how to play.
Jessica
We could not be happier with Matthew! He has the perfect deameanor and teaching technique for our 7 year old. Our son has learned an unbelievable amount in the last two months, but more importantly, he thinks playing is fun. We are so happy to have found Matthew!
Michael
Matthew has been great for my son, Michael! He has learned a lot in a short period of time!

Private Drum Teacher

Experienced drummer with 13 years of experience, performing in multiple bands genres ranging from Rock, Blues, Jazz, Punk, Country, and more.

I began learning drums through Rock Band, yes.. I said a video game. After a month or two I was playing songs on hard or expert difficulty and I soon began applying the rhythms and rudiments I was learning in Rock Band to a real drum set. I began playing drums every day. I played in a few different bands in my teen years, recorded in studios and currently I accompany musicians around San Diego regularly.

I've been teaching drum set for 5 years. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to properly hold a pair of sticks and as time goes on you'll be able to effectively keep time, and play along to songs. I specialize in rock, fuck, pop, and blues drumming. In my lessons I typically us the instructional books Syncopation by Ted Reed and the Drummer's Bible by Mick Berry. At lessons I have two drum sets, drum pads, sticks, brushes, music stands, and various drum books. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and am excited to teach.

About Danny

I have been playing and performing the drums for the past 16 years. In a teaching situation I try and provide a relaxed and friendly environment in order to learn a students strengths and weaknesses. I want students to be able to learn at their own pace, and not to worry if they think they are n

The drum set is primarily an ensemble instrument, and I believe it should be studied as such.

My approach focuses mainly on strong fundamentals of playing, particularly on solid time, feel, touch and sound: concepts that are essential for playing music with other people to create meaningful music.

I like to tailor a syllabus for each student in accordance with their own preferences. I want my students to be equally inspired by drumming material in the context of music they enjoy but also to point them towards fundamentals of the instrument that are the foundations for all styles.

About Timur

Having graduated from Berklee College of Music, Timur arrived in NYC in 2008 with a set of drums, a pair of running shoes and a handful of books on meditation, he set about collaborating with as many people as possible.

Yo, Zen is the best in the game. Gettin' groovy on the drums as well as in the virtual world. Much obliged!
Jason R.
Dj zen is an excellent teacher for someone like me.. He was patient and understanding when it came to the speed at which I pick up things. (Slowly) He was extremely versatile when it came to the types of music i wanted to mix and very knowledgeable about the equipment i had in front of me. I would recommend him to extreme beginners to people looking to polish their skill sets and add even more. Im very happy with what I am learning!
Lorelei M.
Zen has done such an amazing job teaching me how to operate Ableton. I was extremely overwhelmed and had no idea where to start and Zen really broke everything down for me and provided me with the resources I needed to get started.

Niyama R.
Murray is friendly and accessible. He is able to combine his skill with an obvious love of teaching. His approach seems to emphasize technical skill, fun, and a bit of boldness on the student's part. I appreciate his ability to represent the many potentials of drumming, not just as an art but also as a modality of expression and healing that can meet the needs of the moment for a person or a community.
Margie & Ian R.
We had fun and are looking forward to our second lesson. Thank you,

Hollie
Murray was an AWESOME teacher! Learning musical instrument via zoom sounds like it may be difficult or not as productive as in person but Murray proved that wrong. Each class was fun and interactive and came away feeling more confident than the last.

I appreciate how he encourages her play intuitively, which is teaching her principles that she can apply in all aspects of music, not just in playing the drums. I would recommend Ben for a student of any age, but I have been impressed with how he has connected with my daughter."
