Are you a beginner, intermediate or advanced drum-set player interested in learning how to keep a beat, how to set-up a drum-set, how to tune drums, how to play fills...actually you're here because you want to be a Rockstar, don't you? Ah. I see. This should be easy then.

I started playing drum-set professionally as a freshmen in high school and have never stopped. It was my first true love, and my way into my own musical voice. I also sing while performing drums, so if that's something you're interested in getting better at I have plenty of experience to help you lead from behind the set.

Whether you are planning on joining/starting a band, using it as accompaniment to someone else, or just want to learn for fun as a hobby, I can teach you all you need to know to meet your Rockstar drummer potential! If you have any questions, please message me!

Private Drum Teacher

My drum lessons are the most fun for many reasons. I focus you on the music you love, stay as far away from boring material as possible, while teaching you the most important aspects of drumming such as technique, hand positions, posture, pocket, feel, timing, ect. But I use music as the guidance system. We will cover drum rudiments, we will cover different genres like Rock, Pop, Metal, Hip Hop, Classic Rock, Reggae, EDM. We will have a blast.

About Jason

Hello Everyone, I am your future teacher. I have been playing for 25 years, I recently recorded for Mark Farner of Grand Funk Railroad, and I have recorded for various other rock and metal artist from NY and LA. I have toured the country with my original group from NY opening for bands like Iron M

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.
