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

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

Private Drum Teacher

Drumming is almost entirely muscle memory. I believe that anyone who wants to play drums, can play drums. I have systems implemented in my own practice routine that allow me to become a more precise, tasteful, and musical drummer. I can work with whatever skill level you are at. I teach timing, groove, rudiments, applying rudiments behind the drum set, theory, musicality behind the drum set, limb independence, odd timing, polyrythms, and much more. Thank you, I hope to hear from you!

"Working with Garrett has been a wonderful experience. I was nervous to take drum lessons at first, but the environment at Garrett's studio is really comfortable, and he is very easy to talk to. As far as the lessons go, Garrett is great at breaking complicated topics down, and he pays a lot of attention to the fine details. Whenever I have trouble with something, he always has other ways of explaining the concept and fines a way to make it click with me. Garrett is also just as good with jazz as he is with rock and pop. We started with a lot of rock grooves and technique, and now we're working on my reading, jazz comping, and soloing. I learn something new at every lesson and always have a good time doing so--I'd highly recommend Garrett to anyone!"

"Fantastic!!!

My son started taking trumpet lessons with Jesse last summer, but soon confessed that he really didn't like the instrument. He asked if he could try drums. I suggested that he do that and perhaps try some guitar or keyboards also. He has stuck with drums and loves it, but also asked Jesses to help him with a vocal song he'd like to perform for his school's talent show this spring. I LOVE the fact that Jesse can help him try out so many different aspects of musicianship in his fabulous in-house studio! The first "recital"/jam session was so amazing that my 9 year old daughter asked if she could also take lessons with Jesse. Now both of my kiddos are singing, Jamming and keyboarding together, and it is so much fun.
I hated piano lessons as a kid. I was always in trouble for not practicing enough, but everything the teacher gave me to work on was so unappealing. I wanted a different music experience for my kids. I have found it with Jesse. He is so talented and inspiring. He listens to his students and gently moves them to accomplish amazing results. With his back help, even beginning students can feel like they are part of a band and really making music.
I feel so fortunate to have found Jesse and for my kids to have such a positive and well rounded musical introduction. I have even decided to take guitar lessons for myself now!
My husband had similar negative music experience as I did as a child and was very negative about my efforts to have our kids take music lessons at all until he came to the first recital/jam session at Jesse's studio. He loved it and could completely appreciate how much fun the kids were having learning how to play music in a more modern and flexible environment."
