Private Drum Teacher

Lesson regiments are tailored to synthesize student goals and musical passions, setting a foundation in the instrument of interest.

Technique and practice-exercises provide the core for study and development (but we won't let that get in the way of the fun!).

My teaching philosophy largely derives from experience with master-drummers of different fields of study; therefore, my modality is a synthesis of concepts designed to ensure anyone's improvement. We all have rhythm!

About Joe

I am a professional percussionist and drum instructor based out of the Tannery Arts Center in Santa Cruz. I teach both studio and outcall lessons to all ages, covering drumset, steel pan, hand drumming, orchestral percussion, music theory, and piano. Additionally, I am a leader in the samba

My son enjoys his lessons with Joe very much. He’s an encouraging teacher.

My son loves his drum lessons. Being eight, he naturally has an excess amount of energy and a tendency to chat but Joe has a way of engaging him and keeps him learning. Very positive and supportive as well.

My son has loved taking lessons with Linda. She is setting just the right pace with him. She is flexible given his strengths and weaknesses. He was genuinely disappointed when I told him he couldn't go to lessons this week because of a family commitment. Can't recommend highly enough!
Janet P.
very comfortable and satisfying first lesson.
JoAnn C.
Linda was great! As an adult beginner with the cello she made the lesson enjoyable and easy to follow. She adjusted quickly for where I knew a little and where I knew nothing. Highly recommend her!

Online Drum Teacher

I work on the fundamentals like drums placement and body posture, technique, understanding of rhythm, role of the instrument in a band and playing simple grooves with the right sound and feel which is the foundation of becoming a demanding drummer in the industry. For me it is very important that the student sounds right on the instrument, depending on the styles of music he/she performs whether that’s Pop, Rock or Jazz.
My approach to every student is different as every student's learning abilities and goals are different. I work on a plan with the student and progress step by step according to his/her goals. A big part of my teaching philosophy is practicing with songs and playing with bass loops which is a great way to lock with a bass player and build your groove.

About Thanos

Thanos is a Berklee Performance Graduate, a multiple music scholarship recipient and a multi-instrumentalist. He has performed in some of the most iconic venues such as the Irving Plaza, the Theatre of Living Arts and the Gramercy Theatre with legendary Rock bands like the Dead Kennedys as well wit

Hello!

I have been playing the drums for about 15 years and it has always been my passion. I remember when I first started playing and how important those first lessons were to me in launching my drumming career. Now with some experience under my belt, I would now like to share my knowledge with as many aspiring drummers as possible.

Open to all ages in the beginner category. I want to work with you to realize your drumming goals. Whether that's learning some solid technique, or playing along to your favorite songs, I hope to be a good teacher to kick start your drumming journey and beyond!

Online Drum Teacher

I teach a wide variety of students ranging from beginners to advanced, with my youngest student being 5 years old and my oldest in his late 50's. I believe whether you are a beginner, thinking about music as a hobby or someone who wishes to pursue music as a career, I am positive I can cultivate and grow your musical capabilities based on your specific needs.

Providing my students with knowledge from a musician who is actively furthering their career is important to me, I want my students to know that I am aggressively pushing the boundaries of drumming alongside artists such as Grayson Erhard, Emma Mayes & the Hip, and my own jazz influenced hip-hop trio Smirk.

About Ryan

My name is Ryan and I offer private drum lessons. Music, specifically drumming, is my passion. I am extremely grateful to have the opportunity to make a living performing & teaching drums. Watching a student work on a new song for months and finally get to the point where they are ready to perfo

"My son has been taking lessons with Ed since he was 5. Ed was very patient dealing with a high energy child who had a limited attention span. Eight years later, we are still seeing Ed weekly for lessons and my son has turned into a well-rounded musician. Ed tailors the lessons to my son's musical interests and takes an interest in what is going on in his life.

We have gone to see Ed perform in several venues and he always takes the time to talk to us during his break. I highly recommend Drum Lessons with Ed for those at any skill level."
