About Athan

Hello potential students! I have been teaching music for over eight years, and love teaching as much as music itself.

Private Drum Teacher

I've been teaching drums to students of all ages since 2004. I'm available for lessons at my home studio or your house, and I'm great with kids, however I ask that your child is at least 6 years old. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to play basic drum beats and play along to some of your favorite songs. At the same time, we'll work on good drumming technique, note reading, developing good timing, and more. I'm a very patient and positive teacher and would be excited to hear from you! I pride myself on having long-term student retention. :)

I had a lovely first lesson with Alexa! She was patient, encouraging, and fun. By the end of the lesson, I learned something new, knew what I needed to practice, and was excited to go back for another lesson.
Yasmin
WOW! My nephew was so inspired and excited after his first drum lesson with Alexa! She is so professional and knowledgeable ... and made the lesson so much fun! I wholeheartedly recommend her!
Fred
I was a beginner drummer looking to learn a new skill. Alexa was a patient and extremely talented teacher. I looked at many different individuals before choosing her. I was trying to find someone who was educated in music through formal schooling (To have a strong background in the fundamentals who could actually teach me as an absolute novice) as well as someone that is currently performing (who Rocks !). I have seen her perform a number of times and she is truly talented.
I felt so comfortable with her as a teacher (and a person) I also had her teach my youngest son (who was 11 at the time).
She never missed an appointment, and was always on time (very important for a drummer)

Online Drum Teacher

ABOUT ME: I’m a drum teacher and artist who resides and has a studio space in Northborough, MA. I primarily teach at my studio, but will also travel to your home or have lessons via Skype or FaceTime. I have been playing drums since I was 6. I first started teaching in 2000. I could never fathom my life being void of this connection and want to pass on this healthy bond to others.

The diversity and abilities of my current and former students speak to my innate ability to connect, efficiently and effectively, and to teach. If you asked each of them independently, they share this common answer: they come away with a solid understanding of rhythm and the role of the drummer in a band, as an accompanying instrument, as a sound-base for meditation, as well as a holding the firm knowledge of the techniques and attitudes that make for excellent musicianship.

My goal for each of my students is that they become the best drummer that lives in them, one they have yet to meet. I want to get

Online Drum Teacher

I teach lessons to any grade/age group. I have an extremely open mind to teaching and music in general, so nothing goes out the door in terms of philosophy, however, I've come to realize that some methods work better than others. That said, I tailor my attention and focus as an educator to the needs of student I'm teaching in front of me. I don't consider the student who just walked out of the lesson or the student who is coming in next. I put my all in the student who is in front of me because I believe time is an essential asset to lessons. Also, every case is so uniquely different in terms of students and I take a good amount of time to calibrate the learning style of every student.

About Matt

I am passionate instructor who is fueled by seeing success in others. No other feeling is more fulfilling then seeing the growth of another human. I have been teaching private lessons in my own studio for about 8 years now. I've taught 7 marching bands and currently writing music for some with an

"I have spent the last 9 years playing in various music groups with Jason Turnier. Besides being one of Long Islands best percussionist, he happens to be the most warmest, patient, personable, and fun loving soul I have encountered. Any student would instantly feel comfortable and not only would their musicianship evolve and improve, but their character & self confidence will expand by having be trained by Jason Turnier. Top notch musician, top notch individual."

Kimberly is a great teacher. She is always prompt and ready for the lesson. If a student runs behind she makes sure to catch them up and follows up on their progress. I enjoy taking classes within the convenience of her home. She is very organized and I look forward to her lessons weekly."

"Hi, I just started taking lessons and I absolutely love it! I have an excellent teacher that takes his time to show me the right techniques and fundamentals to achieve the goal of playing professional. He has great expertise and pushes me to be the best. He makes sure I understand why I need to do certain things such as rudiments and learning to read notes. I couldn't have asked for a better teacher. He's always full of energy and ready to teach me so I can go far in drumming. If your looking for a fun cool teacher full of energy who loves teaching the art of drumming Mr. Rufus is your guy! He has the passion and love for it and that motivates me and gives me that drive to keep pushing to go further in music!"

Asaf has trained my son initially on a practice pad. Taught my son Quater notes, Eighth notes and moved on to the Snare Durm and worked his way up to 16th notes. He taught my son how to use wrist action, rather then his arms. The fact that ASAF travels to my home and instructs my son is definitely a plus. He is highly commmunicative and flexible."
