I want to help you be the best percussionist you can be. With percussion, there are so many different instruments to play but what ties it all together is the technique you use to play the instruments.

Here’s my secret! To get the best, most resonant sound out of any instrument I strike. That’s it.

How you do that is dependent on the instrument, the mallet choice, the striking area, the touch, and many other factors. I want to help you with these so you can progress faster, learn how to think about these choices quicker and easier, so you can make BETTER music FASTER!

***I am a freelance musician/percussionist in the NYC area but I am currently teaching online lessons from my Texas home in the midst of the pandemic.***

Being from Texas, music education became a huge part of my life from the moment I picked up a pair of sticks in 2001. I received two performance degrees from very prestigious music/percussion programs (Florida State and Eastman School of Music) and I have been private teaching since 2013. Lessons with me could set you up for either great success and/or to simply have a very good time learning something new. Whatever goals you have, I will do my very best to fulfill them. I have training on the following instruments: marimba, xylophone, vibes, bells, snare drum, timpani, drum set, auxiliary instruments (tambourine, triangle, cymbals, tom-toms, etc) and a few hand drums. I currently have access to a drum set, marimba and drum pad/snare drum.

About Sarah

*** I am currently only teaching online lessons and temporarily living in my Texas home (central time zone). My schedule slightly varies (I am more than positive that we can find a mutual and consistent time) each week so please consider messaging me before paying for lessons!*** Sarah Jayne Gar

My son Christopher received private lessons from Ms. Gartin when she was here at Brennan High School. He learned so much from her and gained such a confidence in himself. She taught him so much, and helped him discover his passion for music. HIGHLY recommend her for lessons! We miss you Ms. Gartin!

My daughter took drum lessons with Sarah. She made huge advancements in percussion during this time and the relationship between her and my daughter was remarkable. It is a blessing to find someone that your children bond with and look up to.

Perry knows his stuff! His instruction and book have helped me become a solid drummer. I look forward to learning more from this talented musician. Thank you Perry!

Didn't think online drum lessons would work, but they do and I am thrilled I found Perry as my teacher! His Drum Control book is the perfect guide and I am improving with every lesson. Thanks Perry!
Gerry
Returning to drums after several years, I found that the "Drum Control" book Perry created and wrote really cleaned up my technique and got me going again with the essential tools I needed. I can't believe how easy it was with this great book. The combination of his teaching and book got me rockin' in no time! Perry is a real pro and knows what he's doing. I am learning from the best! Thanks Perry!

I can teach you advanced drumming techniques on a drum set. How to keep time, rudiments, reading drum notation, and how to let loose. Double Bass not a problem.

About Scott

Hi! I'm Scott. I usually perform using a one-man band setup I created. I modified guitar and made foot pedals to control a drum set, while singing. I have a recording studio at home, and have performed with bands as a singer, guitarist, saxophonist, bassist, percussionist, and as a sound engineer.

Had our first lesson with Scott. He was great with my 7 year old. We look forward to future lessons with him!

Very personable and eager to share his love of music. He’s not looking to teach you “his way” but meeting you where you’re at and helping you get to where you want to go, musically.

"To the extent of what I learned in my experience, Andrew is a great percussion teacher for students looking to join a band or marching band. He obviously had a great amount of knowledge and experience with the instrument itself but also the teaching of it. By the end of the first lesson we had already moved to patterns with 8 strikes on each hand and was presented with an arsenal of other exercises for afterwards to find a rate of improvement when given time. He is a very patient teacher and is sensitive to mistakes and which ones to focus on. I could safely recommend him to any of my friends who are also into percussion, and can speak from experience that any nervousness of getting a new teacher quickly dissolves after the first lesson. Great teacher."

"Kevin is a fantastic instructor!

I have been taking private lessons from Kevin for two years now as we'll as receiving instruction in Band for the last three years. Kevin not only is an incredible percussionist himself, but he has a knack for being able to convey ideas to students that they can understand. New and better approaches to teaching rhythm, personalized lesson planning to suit a student's needs, and a vast knowledge of music from years of professional experience are just a few things that Kevin brings to the table. If you're looking for a percussion instructor, I would highly recommend Kevin as your first choice!"

"Amazing instructor

Erasmo has been my instructor and has taught me mallet percussion for the past year, and over that year I have improved unbelievably. He is an amazing instructor, very patient and helps explain so the student can fully understand. I have gotten very far within such little time thanks to him. I have become such a better musician from the time I started learning from Erasmo, and I have gotten many great opportunities to become an even better musician thanks to the instruction I have learned. I would highly recommend him for anyone of any age."

I was new to learning music and glad I came across Brian because he is a chill guy with positive light. I felt as if I could take drums as far as I wanted with Brian as my teacher. I will be back for some more lessons when my wife lets me lol."
