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

About Gabriel

I started playing drums when I was in second grade and formed a band with my 2 older brothers who played bass and guitar. 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

Drums are the heartbeat of any musical situation. The way the drum-set is laid out makes it easy to feel how music works and fits together. In our lessons we'll be sure to cover the basics of hand technique, rhythm, melody and theory to ensure a solid foundation to build upon. Concepts are taught through the use of various method books in addition to listening exercises, ensuring a well-rounded approach to becoming a great musician.

Not many world-class musicians are also great teachers. They either aren’t humble enough or never took the time to learn how to explain what they do. Anthony Fung is a true exception. As a lifelong fan of the drum set but someone who was always too intimidated to learn, I tried many teachers in-person & online and walked away feeling confused more often than not. Anthony was the teacher who changed that.

I first discovered Anthony’s drumming hearing him at the Newport Jazz Festival playing the drums with Grammy Winner and virtuoso pianist Danilo Pérez. Never have I been more blown away by hearing a musician live. He was in his early 20s at the time and had all the signs of someone with a special gift who would go very far in the music world. The drumming spoke for itself.

Then, later that day, he taught a drum clinic for hundreds of under-privileged high school students and adults that had the room buzzing. I saw the profound difference in the students’ playing immediately. And it became clear why people all over the world contract Anthony for his teaching.

We kept in touch over the years and I took lessons whenever I was in Los Angles at his studio. After the first lesson, I found I had already learned more facility at the drum set than from years of slogging through method books and teachers who didn’t know what they were doing.

Since the beginning of this year, I have switched over to weekly online lessons, which I found to be just as effective as in-person studies. We are now studying advanced concepts and exercises for developing technical facility and versatility as a drummer in the 21st century (and I played my first gig on the drums!). I feel truly fortunate to be able to take lessons with one of the world’s greatest drummers. No matter what genre you play, and whether you’re a complete beginner or advanced drummer, I know you’ll benefit immensely from Anthony’s experience, world-class artistry, and personable approach.

My nephew takes lessons with Anthony and he wanted to play like Travis Barker. He learned how to play All The Small Things and Adam’s song with Anthony, and he sounds great!
Alex Hahn
Anthony is a tremendous teacher who does a great job sharing his passion for music. He has amazing experience and has thoroughly studied many different genres. I highly recommend studying with him to take your musicianship to the next level!

I will provide all of my students with the knowledge of basic rhythms/rudiments, techniques, and express what a good work ethic looks like when applied to a craft like music!

I specialize in Marching percussion, Jazz, and Funk drumming. I have marched with world-class drum lines and I play in a growing jazz/rock band, The Family Recipe. With the culmination of knowledge from my previous experience/instructors, I know the importance of good instruction and how to use those tools for maximum expression through drumming.

Dylan is an excellent teacher and an amazing drummer. He is down-to-earth and makes you feel comfortable immediately. He's also very organized regarding scheduling, and his lesson plans are flexible and productive. His teaching style is detail oriented and he explains well. He does not hesitate to correct my child and still encourages her to play better. Dylan is very enthusiastic about drumming and makes lessons a joy to take.

I am so glad we found him as soon as we came to NYC!

"Michael is a great instructor. I'm an adult learner with no drum experience and my first lesson with Michael was spent getting to know my goals, making sure my set up worked, and then starting me off with the basics and slowly building, Michael was very encouraging and positive throughout and the lesson flew by. Looking forward to working with Michael and becoming a proficient drummer!"

"Brent is an extremely talented musician and teacher as well as a kind and thoughtful person. My 14-year-old son has been taking drum lessons with Brent since 2016 and his progress has been phenomenal. Over the years Brent has been a respectful and supportive mentor, and has contributed to my son’s love for playing a musical instrument and honing his skill.

Brent has the ability to incorporate his musical training and knowledge in an easy-going yet structured manner, which has been very relatable to my son. Always mindful, Brent would express interest in what my son enjoys listening to, and/or would like to play on the drums, and integrate that with exposure to other genres, necessary musical theory, musicianship and technical skills. He would also provide valuable tidbits throughout the lesson and has pointed us to numerous helpful resources to aid in my son’s skill advancement. My son enjoys every lesson and actually practices without check-ins from Mom - no small feat for a 14-year old boy! (We have had the opportunity to see Brent play live a few times, which has been tremendously inspirational to my son.)

Brent is a great communicator and a wonderful resource when we have technical questions. He also lets us know in advance when a lesson may need to be rescheduled.

We feel very fortunate to have Brent as a teacher, as not only is my son learning about music, there are life lessons incorporated as well.

Thank you Brent!"
