Taking percussion lessons online is a great option at this time. I have taught percussion lessons for 47 years and have been a band instructor in the public schools. I emphasize good technique, sight-reading skills, improvisation and applying these skills to repertoire in preferred styles. I primarily take beginning percussion students on snare drum, bass drum and bells.

About Darrell

My goal is to personalize a music lesson that is designed around each student’s learning style, skill level, schedule and interests. My specialty is in teaching elementary age students, but I have taught all ages, including adults through the years. My philosophy for teaching involves these elem

Wish there were more stars. Andrew is the most patient and gifted teacher. He’s been teaching our son since he he was two years old and we’ve stuck with him for almost 6 years. Highly recommend Andrew to anyone who wants to learn the drums.

Patient, focused, encouraging and time efficient. He was good at keeping our youngster on task and making the experience fun. Wish he was able to take our child further with piano. I don't know how much was Tyler and how much was our child, but our kiddo learned quickly from Tyler. Thank you Tyler!

I have formal training on congas (studied w/ Eguie Castrillo - Tito Puente's disciple, has performed with Jenifer Lopez, Paquito D'Rivera, Arturo Sandoval Band, & many others)

Also extensively studied at Berklee as well as spent a month in Ghana, regarding traditional West African percussion, especially that of the Ewe people. But also Ga tradition - specifically, the kpanlogo drum.

Also extensively studied Brazilian percussion, was just down in Brazil a month ago.

I have experience also teaching bongos (used especially in bachata) and also djembe technique.

I can teach you a universe of rhythmic knowledge to create a deep architecture for you to excel in any percussion/rhythmic context.

Great teaching. Goes into detail on what needs practicing and teaches you how to improve in a clear manner.

My son enjoyed the lesson and wanted to practice right away.
John
Josh is always easy to be around and is able to form any lesson around what I wanted to do, as well as teach me loads of new ideas if I hadn’t planned anything. He has greatly helped improve my own production and give me insight into what professional producers do to set themselves apart. He’s great to work with and always in an uplifting mood.

"Kevin asked pertinent questions about my background and used that information to tailor the first lesson. He went beyond the scheduled 30 minutes to provide a complete and coherent beginning to my studies: the extra time did not upset my schedule and I appreciated his going beyond to get me off to a good start. Kevin had a lot of stuff to present yet allowed me to interrupt with questions, which he knowledgeably answered. His personality is relaxed and friendly. Observing him with another student before my lesson, I saw that he offered criticism considerately.
My first lesson was a good experience (4 stars). I don't know if he is the best ever (5 stars), but he must be darn close."

"Rainice has helped me grow tremendously as a musician and develop a greater appreciation for percussion. I've studied with her for two years now and she is always super welcoming and positive in her approach. Rainice has helped me organize my audition preparation, overcome various technical issues I was having--especially on auxiliary percussion and marimba, and develop a better ear which has been particularly helpful for playing in orchestral settings. She has also given me lots of helpful advice based on her experiences in the field. Highly recommend!"

"Online Conga Drum Instruction

From Online pupil from England George D.

Johnny is an awesome teacher. Instructive. Quick to find what you need to focus on. Patient. Insightful. Funny. Just what you need if your time is precious, but you can get in front of webcam for a few hours a week. He's helped me get those tones right and given me the confidence to grow. Really, really importantly he's always there for questions and support outside of the lessons."

She moved at a pace that worked for me, and I already feel as though I have learned some basics. I'm excited to continue my lessons with her!"
