Private Drum Teacher

I have been playing for over 2 decades and have a lot of experience playing professionally. I am also currently a audio engineer and record music for a living. I have a professional studio that will give the student the ability to sit inside and feel what it like to be in a real studio, not just a practice space like pretty much every teacher i have ever had lessons with. I have a practical approach for any one getting started with drumming. But i also like to teach what the student wants to learn at that time. This varies based on the needs of the student.

sooooooo much fun taking hand drum lessons from Brian! Ultra beginner student is me (shhh I'm getting better!). I decided to learn bongos plus the djembe ( I don't own either drum BUT he has them at his studio so it was cool )......He is very supportive when I try the exercises he shows me and no pressure to be a pro right away lol. I will keep coming to learn more and more I like the salsa stuff he showed me at lessons.......and don't worry Brian I am about to buy a set of bongos to practice at home! Cool guy - recommended!!!
Luther
This dude can play! Brian is a great teacher.. we did some hand drums and drum set for the few lessons we had together. I was new to learning music and glad I came across Brian because he is a chill guy with positive light. I felt as if I could take drums as far as I wanted with Brian as my teacher. I will be back for some more lessons when my wife lets me lol.
Jessie
Quality drum teacher. I took lessons with Brian for about a year and his teaching style is relaxed compared to other drummers I studied with. I never felt rushed with the exercises, we always went at my pace. I recommend this teacher.

Michelle is a great teacher. She is patient, kind, and enthusiastic about music. My child loves going to class and hates missing a class (only when she's sick). She makes learning music fun but it also firm if the child doesn't meet the expectation. It's been a year since we started lessons and we couldn't be more happier.
Izabel M.
Michelle has been very good at keeping my 8 year old engaged and interested in learning to read music. We are looking forward to many more lessons.

Easy to sign up and Great customer service

My 12 yr old decided he wanted drums for Christmas and we knew that would include getting him lessons. Finding Christian through Take lessons was indeed lucky for my son. If you are looking for a teacher who is calm, level headed, knowledgeable and very easy to contact at anytime then Christian is who you are looking for. He has several students and they all come out happy and feeling good about their lessons. My son, even when not feeling great insist that he attend his drum lessons. compliments to the instructor.

James is a reliable instructor. He always meets at the scheduled time, and instructs with patience and persistence. Our son has been a student for 8 or 9 years now, and likes Jame's style of teaching. Our son has learned many techniques for playing drums, starting with simple beats. James is well liked and respected. For 11 years James instructed our oldest son on the drums. When the boys started showing an interest in piano, we bought a keyboard for them, and James started teaching them the basics of piano.
Currently James instructs our youngest son on drums and keyboards - rotating each week.
When our son wants to go over something he's been learning at school in his Advanced Keyboarding class, James has been a great help in this area!
Heather
My son has been taking drum lessons from James for a few years now and has grown so much in his love of music and his ability to play. He looks forward to his lesson every week. We are grateful to James for cultivating his passion.

"Perry is a talented drummer and teacher who's defiantly been around the block before. However this experience doesn't taint his ability to teach. He's always open to new things and new ways of explaining something. Perry's goofy personality keeps lessons lively and he always knows the best way to go about learning something. He doesn't push anything and doesn't gloat during lessons like a lot of teachers do. I've known Perry for almost 2 years and am still taking lessons from him. I highly recommend him as a friend and a teacher/drumming mentor."

How to Practice Drums Along With Your Favorite Songs

When you're practicing the drums and learning new rhythms, one of the best ways to perfect your skills is to have something to copy and imitate. Playing along with your favorite songs is a great idea, but you need to make sure you're practicing the right way. All of that fun could go to waste if you're not targeting the proper patterns! Selecting Your Songs When your drum teacher gives you new rhythms to practice, ask him or her which songs might have some examples of these rhythms. This is …
