Jason is an AMAZING TEACHER!!! He is so fun and knowledgeable. I found him on Instagram. I was always admiring his guitar playing whenever I saw his videos. I reached out to him and I took my first lesson last week via Skype since I'm living in a different state. I'm looking forward to what he is gonna teach me next! Thank you so much Jason!

I took several lessons with Jason and he is a very knowledgeable guitar teacher and he makes the learning experience a good one. He breaks down the teaching experience so even the most beginning student can understand it and he caters to his students individual needs.

I have developed a natural teaching method that focuses on learning and understanding the building blocks of drum set playing, familiarizing and connecting these building blocks, and applying them to individual expression. I have the ability to take nearly anyone without prior drum set or rhythmic experience, and, within days, turn them into beat playing drummers! My approach focuses on:
-building an understanding and relationship with each drum
-the basic rudimentary foundation of drumming
-how to approach the drums, hold the sticks, set up the drums, and tune the drums
-basic mechanical techniques
-development of each limb
-learning how to read basic drum charts and play to them
-learning and playing the most significant beats and patterns in the history of drum set
-gaining the ability to effectively teach oneself how to improve as a drummer
-learning your favorite songs on drums
-how to play in a band

Online Drum Teacher

As I have taught many students on many different instruments, my focus has been on providing students with a firm foundation, including proper posture, breathing, embouchure, technique, and pitch/rhythm literacy. Beyond a traditionally classical approach, I believe strongly in listening to my students to realize what they desire to learn. Many students are primarily interested in learning the jazz style, including improvisation, which includes a great deal of listening, transcribing, and practicing of patterns/riffs.

"Murray is an exsquisite drum teacher. He teaches my son all of the fundamentals of playing the drums. He ensures that my son knows how to read music, and knows how to play all genres of music. His lessons are always fun and he encourages my son to have fun while playing, but to do so professionally as well. Murray makes sure that my son knows the different drum rudiments that he plays, such as, paradiddles/flamadiddles, so when speaks about a piece that he has played, he can sound educated and professional about his craft. Murray deposits fruitful information about how to conduct business, if you are planning to have a career in the music industry. Thank you for being a great teacher and influence to my child."
