Students have the options of borrowing my used books or purchasing new books.

Experienced drummer with 13 years of experience, performing in multiple bands genres ranging from Rock, Blues, Jazz, Punk, Country, and more.

I began learning drums through Rock Band, yes.. I said a video game. After a month or two I was playing songs on hard or expert difficulty and I soon began applying the rhythms and rudiments I was learning in Rock Band to a real drum set. I began playing drums every day. I played in a few different bands in my teen years, recorded in studios and currently I accompany musicians around San Diego regularly.

"Haitham Kassem teaches like no one else. He goes in depth in to the topic and makes sure that you understand what he is teaching. He tells his students to stop him and ask if they don't understand something. He is very dynamic and engages the student. He connects each lesson to the bigger picture and leaves the student with a through and holistic understanding of the subject, which is something not every teacher cares about or is capable of giving."
