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.

My daughters, 9 and 12, just started piano lessons with Chris. They have had lessons in the past and were so pleased with their new teacher. My 12 year-old is especially shy, and she warmed right up to him. We are really looking forward to Chris coming for weekly lessons.

Bgcheck Background Checked


Private Drum Teacher

I have been playing drums for more than 10 years and have been teaching for more than 3. Throughout that time, I have played across the country in New York City and even in Japan. I am currently a Jazz Studies Major at Sacramento State University. My goal is to make every student a well-rounded drummer who knows whats going on when they are in any type of musical situation. My favorite style to play is jazz, but I am well-rounded in all other styles such as rock, Latin, blues, funk, and country.

In my lessons, I base the material on the student depending on how advanced they are. If the student is just starting out, I will teach them the basics such as holding the drumsticks properly, basic rudiments, reading rhythms, learning about the hardware, and so on.

If you have any questions, don't be afraid to ask :D

About Gabriel

I started playing drums when I was in second grade and formed a band with my 2 older brothers who played bass and guitar. It was something to do when we younger but when I got into high school, I took playing drums a lot more seriously. I was in a very competitive marching band playing bass drum an

Bgcheck Background Checked


Online Drum Teacher

I like to teach with music, meaning we start by choosing the students favorite song and building slowly in level of difficulty. As they progress we play beats and learn fills. Later we get into reading and writing drum notes. Then we explore different genres, and styles of playing. This way the student can aim to play any song at-least 4-5 ways depending on what is required and what style and flavor they want to incorporate in their performance. For Advanced students we learn to jam with other instrumentalists, and write our own drum beats. Just like a pianist would learn to compose a melody, my drum students can learn to compose their own drum beats like all great drummers do. And finally the most advanced student can learn to manage the rhythm of a song, not only the drums but also the other instruments.
Any level of student can expect to learn the necessary rudiments, beats, fills to have a vast and deep repertoire. Also I strive to teach the art of freestyling which is the ...

About Shiv

I've been playing since I was 6 years old, so I understand the difficulty of learning drums, but it. doesn't have to be boring. I like to teach with the student's favorite songs, and break them down into simple levels. And as we learn new concepts we can play their song with a more complex rhythm,

Shiv is a great teacher, he is practical, uses songs to get you started and keep you interested in learning drums. He is young and has been learning music from very young age. It is relief for me when i go to drums classes as it clears my mind away from daily grind.

Vir is a gifted teacher. He has taught my son guitar for more than a year. He meets my son where ever he's at in his practice, attention and interests with calm, skilled focus and intention . Vir's background as performing musician infuses his teaching with an enthusiasm and creativity of practicing his teaching. We are truly grateful for Vir.

Vir is beyond your typical vocal coach. He was a huge help on things like pitch accuracy and phrasing, but more than anything, his focus on getting me to tap into and harness my inner power has already paid huge dividends in my recordings and performances. Further, Vir is an amazing person to know and his home-studio in Berkeley is magnificent!

"Francisco is a patient and thorough drum teacher. I took lessons with him for approximately a year and learned so much that I still apply today. I would still be taking lessons with him but moved away from Southern California. He tailors his lessons to your personal goals and gives you actionable steps for the week ahead but also exposes you to larger concepts to show you what's possible. I regularly left lessons with him with my mind blown feeling very excited for the new possibilities in drumming that were being opened to me. After taking lessons with Francisco I feel like I have a toolbox of skills and knowledge that I will use my whole drumming life. He is extremely passionate about his craft and takes your personal goals seriously. I'd recommend him to any drummer of any style."

Casey is an amazing teacher. I have ZERO musical talent and Casey had me playing songs within a week. He makes learning fun and very easy. He is very knowledgeable not to mention a pretty sick drummer.

He gave me confidence and encouragement to become the great drum player I am today. His methods of teaching are well rounded, his lesson plans are efficient and since day one he guaranteed I would be ready to play songs with a band in only 6 months.
