Private Drum Teacher

The purpose of my lessons program is to cultivate a fun and inspiring learning environment. I wish to create an atmosphere where the student feels like they are part of the family and not just merely there to take in information. I will also ask the student what they want to learn and create a personal lesson plan around that to help them achieve their goals. Everybody is different when it comes to learning (the one size fits all approach does not work). I will personally find the best way to teach each student and have them learn at the pace they are most comfortable with.

About Kody

I have been teaching drum lessons for three years and am now available to teach lessons at your home. I have helped students learn their first drum beat, I have taught students how to read music, and I have taught students how to play their first song. Everybody is different when it comes to learnin

Garrett is incredibly personable and knowledgeable, the best attributes of a great teacher! I've learned so much from him already and am looking forward to more to come in future lessons. I'd highly recommend Garrett to learn basics and beyond of dj'ing.

Garrett, is very knowledgeable, professional, patient and thorough. He continuously checks for understanding and is enthusiastic and passionate about what he does. My son had his first lesson and is very excited and is looking forward to his future lessons!
Dillard
Garrett was patient, kind, and professional when he meet with my son virtually. I was a little worried about how the meet was going to go because it was virtual; however, he did an excellent job rearranging the camera whenever he needed to provide the appropriate angles for my son to learn.

Our son loves his Drum lessons.

Benk is very flexible, affordable and our son took to him very well. He even records what he has learned each week so we both can keep track of his progress. He is much more affordable then other drum teachers or studio's in the area, and even will come to your home.

Online Drum Teacher

Beginning to Intermediate Drum lessons and beats that are actually used in today's and yesteryear's "hit songs".

It's no secret, drums is the backbone or "foundation" to any hit song.

I break down drumming to its most basic rudiments so that you will grow by leaps and bounds instead of just crawling along.

You have to walk before you can run so getting it right initially is very important to moving forward and getting you playing your favorite songs quickly and accurately..

My child really enjoyed his first lesson with peter. Peter is a very talented musician and he made the lesson fun! My child seemed to learn a lot from just one lesson with peter and he enjoys practicing what he learned at home.

Peter is a great teacher. He finds what your level is and goes from there. Peter finds what kind of style of learning best fits you.
For me, when Peter is playing the drums or Piano after he has given me the structures/scales makes it very easy to learn. Very patient and encouraging. Ask yourself- Why aren’t YOU taking lessons with Peter?

"Evan is a terrific drum teacher for our two sons. My youngest is a beginner; Evan has structured lessons for him but definitely encourages creativity. My oldest is in a band at school and Evan is great at reinforcing the style of music that he plays at school (mostly jazz) and teaching other styles that my son enjoys playing (mostly rock). He is organized, dependable, and easy going. He is flexible when we have conflicts. Most importantly, not only does he have great skill but he has a great demeanor for teaching: he is kind, encouraging, and has a good sense of humor. Highly recommend him!"

"I know a bit about drums myself, but wanted to find a professional instructor to teach my son. I've met a lot of teachers in San Diego who advertise that they teach a lot of different instruments and found that most of them know very little about drums and percussion (usually just basic rhythms that they learned from other instruments, and a few rudiments). Garrett on the other hand is exactly what my wife and I were looking for for our son. He specializes in drum set and percussion, is professional and very mature for his age, and an excellent teacher (I've learned a lot from the lessons as well). He gets along great with my son as well, and inspires him to practice hard throughout the week. We'll be sticking with Garrett for a very long time."

You Got the Beat: 16th-Note Drum Fills for Beginners

As you progress in your drum lessons, you will learn to play more advanced drum patterns. Here, Federal Way, WA drum instructor Kendra M. shares some exercises to help you play 16th-note drum fills...  When you create a four-fill beat, the possibilities are endless. Many beginning drummers, however, tend to rely on the same pattern every time they play a one-measure solo. One of the first fills most drummers learn on a five-piece kit moves from snare drum down through all three toms as f …

How Long Does it Take to Learn Drums?

How long does it take to learn drums? Find out the reality in this guest post by Seattle, WA drum teacher Mason L... Many of my new drum students ask me this question a few weeks into their lessons: “How long does it take to learn the drums?” The answer to that question depends on what you’re trying to get out of drumming. If you want to master a few songs and beats, it might take a couple months; if you want to be reliable and confident enough to be in a band, it might take a year …
