Fort Collins, CO

View Full Profile

Dave Y. studied Afro-Cuban Percussion, Percussion and Drums at the University of Northern Colorado, the nation's 3rd largest Jazz school. He brings 17+ years of education and teaching experience to the table.

About Dave
I own a local music/art/production institution which hosts lessons for many instruments and artistic pursuits. Personally, I've been teaching for over 17 years, and I teach beginner to advanced students in instruments like guitar, bass, piano/keys, voice, and drums, and depending on your needs, our studio offers a variety of professional teachers that teach all woodwind, brass, and stringed instruments.

I also am an online teacher for a the world's biggest web platform for guitar instruction, and teach lessons alongside those in Berklee alumni, Musician's Institute, as well with many very famous artists that are now in the music business.

Though I've had the fortune to work with some of the best in studios, as a songwriter, and player, and in education, both professional and informal, I love to teach entry level players up through
the intermediate levels the most. I enjoy watching people discover things for the first time, and in my teaching I really do my best to craft my lessons to the needs of the students. My primary aim in teaching is that I would cultivate in my students a love for music and learning. With these two things in place, a student can go on to be and learn anything.

Join me and my studio. We'll have a great time, and we'll get you to your goals while we're enjoying the journey of music together!!

The drums are the backbone of most music, so you have to be able to feel the groove and stay tight and on top of the beat. I encourage students to pick their favorite songs, and we drum to those while learning proper technique, rudiments, song form, fills, rhythm, different grooves / beats, and anything they want to know about the drums. I have been playing the drums for over sixteen years and have a Bachelor's Degree in Music from the Berklee College of Music. Drums is a beautiful art and form of expression and is just the tip of the iceberg we can tackle called Music.

About Eric
MUSIC!
I think music is the most beautiful thing in the world, so lets take time to learn and play music together.
I have been playing the drums for over sixteen years, and been in over fifteen bands in the course of that time. I have a degree in Music from the Berklee College of Music were I studied music theory and focused on Music Production and Engineering. I have been playing Piano, Bass, and Guitar for about ten years in addition to the drums, and have been recorded in sessions on each. I have a deep passion for synthesizers and electronic music, so lets make some bleeps and bloops together.

I am extremely kind, friendly, and funny so lessons with me are very relaxed and have an easy to learn environment. However I am very passionate about teaching to fit student needs; so if a student likes deadlines and homework, if that is w
hat will help them learn the best, then that is how I will teach.
Lets make some sweet music together!!

Alan was awesome! My son needed some last minute lessons before an upcoming concert he was performing in. Alan helped him fine tune his part and gave him the confidence he needed. My son is now excited for the concert and can't wait to show everyone his talent!

I am a well-rounded drum teacher, meaning I have learned and studied genres ranging from blues, jazz, rock and indie rock. I will give you tons of music to listen to and interpret and teach you how to learn tunes by ear. You will understand the forms of jazz tunes such as aaba Aba and abc. You will learn how to play the tunes you listen to and take the concepts of drum beats and drum rudiments used within them o make them your own and use them in your original playing. I also teach how to read standard drum notation, and can teach you how time signatures work and the values of notes if you don’t already know.

About Eli
Hi future students! I’m Eli. I know how tough it is to teach yourself an instrument, because I struggled with it for years and years. One of my biggest issues was learning how to practice, so if that’s something you struggle with, I can certainly help you develop a routine to which you would follow every week to keep you focused and motivated. After going through many drum teachers myself, I’ve seen the strengths and weaknesses of all of them. I've seen which ones were beneficial and which ones were not. One thing I realized is that teachers don’t always cater to your needs. So in that, I promise I will do my best to go slow and teach information to you in the way that works best for you. This means through audible or visual learning. You will be able to call or text anytime you want to ask me any questions about drums.I’m always here to
help and I just simply want to pass down an art form in a way that I feel is authentic.

Styles:

Jazz
Blues
Rock
Indie rock

After his first session, my son (10 years old) said Eli was, "really nice." They reviewed a lot, Eli asked a lot of questions about previous experiences and and listened to him play. Sounds like it was a packed session but not overwhelming.

I can teach drum set but also any percussion instrument you can think of-marimba, marching percussion, concert snare drum, any mallet instrument, hand drums, and more. I have a bachelor's in music education, have a lot of experience, and perform regularly to practice what I preach. I truly love to teach and work with students of any age, am great at cultivating a different teaching style to fit each individual student, and let students have a say in what they play.

About Liz
I am Michigan native percussionist with a Bachelor's in Music Education and my teaching certificate. I currently teach at Columbine High School as their Percussion Director, and run all their percussion programs like drum line, front ensemble, winter percussion, and more.

I have studied hand drums in Ghana, Africa, so I love to play anything in that realm! I am also pursuing my Masters in Percussion Performance, and love to play marimba, snare drum, and really any percussion instrument. To see me play, you can search "Liz Karney" on you tube, and I have several videos that will come up.

I have taught students of many ages, from 6th grade through college students and love them all. So whether you are just getting started or looking for a musical challenge I can help you find what you're looking for!

My students have fun and learn quickly! I teach all skill levels and all styles of percussion, specializing in drum set, orchestra percussion, and four mallet marimba. Every beginner that takes a lesson with me with be able to play a drum beat and a snare drum piece on day one. After a few more lessons, they will be learning songs and creating their own drum beats! All ages welcome. Lessons are customized and catered to the needs/goals of each student.

About Nicholas
I am a professional drummer and percussionist. Currently playing with Meadow Brook Theatre's musical productions, in a four piece hard rock band- Rezination, and with the Adrian and Rochester Symphonies. I graduated from Eastern Michigan University with a Bachelors of Music Education.

My students can expect to improve every week in their drumming technique and musicality. Every drummer has a unique voice; I teach students foundational techniques in order to unlock their own individual sound. I encourage students to drum with freedom, confidence, and expression.

I teach students of all different ages and experience levels. Students can learn to play contemporary music by ear, by using lead sheets, and how to read music and pursue classical excellence. I also teach rudimental snare drum, marching tenors (quads), four mallet mari
mba, timpani, and hand drums.

I look forward to meeting you and helping you to become a better musician!

About Christian K.

Salt Lake City, UT
View Full Profile

I get pretty excited when when my new students pick up a new groove or take a new step in developing their technique! I've been drumming for 15 years and professionally for about 5, including paid gigs and teaching in the Salt Lake region. Currently drumming and section leader at the University of Utah Drumline. I've drummed professionally in groups such as the Seattle Cascades and Weber State Indoor Percussion. I've played in many rock and metal bands in the last decade and also have a track featured with the famous drummer Luke Holland. I've taught high school percussion. I can teach anywhere from beginning to well-advanced drumming. Ranging anywhere from classical symphonic to marching drums to heavy metal drum set. You name it, I can help.

On a side note, drumming is something that never came easy to me. The first 6 years of my drumming career was spent trying to catch up to my peers and getting cut from auditions. I believe this makes me a really good teacher due to the fact ...

About Christian
Drumming is absolutely amazing. Nothing gets me more excited than when I see my students learn. I make a pretty good income outside of teaching lessons. But, I continue simply because I love doing it.

Rhythm is key

About Mikel
Hello there! My name is Mikel Barandiaran, I'm a Spanish singer-songwriter, producer, arranger, composer and a million things more that has to do with music. But that is not important right now, you are the important individual in this conversation.

I want to tell you a bit about why I'm here:I feel music everywhere, in movement, noise, people, nature, animals, silence, etc. It would be an understatement to put music into a category of comparisson with other things for me, because is basically my natural state of appreciation towards life. But, I can say something: I just want to help the world listen to that music, that is everywhere. I want the chance to help you get into the world of music, I will teach you to learn about your own musical ability and influences. I'm not going to impose a genre, style, technique to you. I want to help
you discover your own path and we will go on your own pace. Luis Alberto Spinetta, one of my favorite musicians, once said that we are just bridges that connect the rest of the people to music. I believe that we owe ourselfs and to music, being truth to our own being and open enough to let that magic flow through us and reach the rest of the world.

We will work not only in how to play an instrument, but music itself, theory, arranging, composing, songwriting, tricks and formulas, pop, experimental and advance harmonic techniques.

See you on our first lesson, and bring some tunes you like!

First of all I chose piano, but he teaches you all that is necessary to domain the instrument, from theory to ear training. And it is not annoying or boring, I have AD syndrome and I cant focus as good as I would like, but he has found a way to connect me to music and be more eager and pacient to learn, I’m having so much fun wirth this that I’m even considering taking guitar or bass too
