I've been playing drums for almost 20 years and it is an integral part of my life. I've been teaching for 3 years and have watched students grow from beginners to beast-status. I teach all different styles: rock, jazz, Afro-Cuban, rudiments, you name it. Time to rock!

Scott is a very talented producer and drummer and is very patient and easy to work with. i highly recommend him to anyone looking to learn Ableton and advance their engineering/ production skills!
Hannah
I am brand new to music production and Scott broke everything down very easily for me. He also gave me great recommendations on starter kit equipment to purchase that was not too expensive.
Aidan
I had a good time with Scott as my coach and first time playing on a drum set! I hope to continue more lessons and maybe do some studio work later.
He showed me basic techniques that I could understand and practice with music. I am happy that I met him.

Private Drum Teacher

I attended Berklee College of Music with drum set as my principal instrument. Drumming is a huge passion of mine and I have an appreciation for many genres. From pop to death metal, I love playing it all and want to teach you how to engage with your favorite music! I can teach you a classical snare piece, or we can learn math rock. I can get you comfortable behind a kit so that you can play the music that moves you! PLEASE NOTE: I do not have a drum set at my studio, all lessons would need to be in-home.

Hand drumming is so much more than just beating a drum. There is an essence about it that speaks through your soul. Lessons with me will be a unique experience because along with learning the basic fundamentals of hand drumming, but we will learn how to listen to those around us in order to have an all encompassing experience. It will be light, fun, informative, and we will go at whatever pace feels good for you, the student! I've been around drumming and drum circles for over ten years now and have come to have a very individual, impactful style for those around me. I look forward to sharing what I know!

About Jessica

Drumming is one of my life’s deepest passions. I was introduced to the art at The Great Blue Heron Music Festival drum circle. I was captivated by the scene: dozens of people creating impromptu rhythms together, on the spot, giving others sounds to dance to around the massive bonfire, all feeling t

Mark
My 9-year-old son, Luke, who is on the spectrum (PDD-NOS) studied with David for the better part of a year and the experience was terrific. In addition to being extremely communicative and reliable, David was kind and patient. David kept Luke focused and entertained while also inviting him to think about rhythm in ways that made sense to Luke's brain. We happily traveled from Inwood to "Downtown Brooklyn" for lessons because the level of instruction was that good and, I think, Luke's progress demonstrates that. Luke was bitten by the hockey bug, so we are taking a break from percussion right now, but I wouldn't hesitate to return to David's studio should time allow in the future.

My lessons are both fun and educational, with flexibility to honor each student's needs and goals. During my time as a drummer, I have had the pleasure of studying music with Dr. Richard Ripani, Eddie Bell, and renowned big band drummer Duffy Jackson in Nashville, TN. I graduated in May 2017 with a degree in Studio Music/Jazz Performance at UT Knoxville, studying with Professor Keith Brown. I want to pass on all the knowledge I gained from them to you! See you soon!

He not only was able to demonstrate what he wanted me to do, he could explain, even to a novice like myself, WHY I needed to do things a certain way. Great experience and I'm learning a lot!"

"My 9 year old daughter started taking drum lessons about two years ago with Michael. He is the best instructor any drummer could ask for. Michael has a big enthusiasm to teach, challenging, encouraging, easy going and a sense of humor. Michael is a very experienced and professional drum teacher that possess great musical skills and techniques. He helped my daughter build her confidence that she has now. My daughter feels free to bring any kind of song style to learn and Michael helps executing it perfectly as he is very knowledgeable about the music industry.
I highly recommend Michael as an instructor for any skill level at any age!"

"No experience, no problem. Colin knows how to play.

I had never played drums before my first lesson but I had a singing background which gave me a good rythm. Colin was able to assess my coordination and abilities within that first lesson and understand how hard to push me. Colin is very good at the drums but knows what it takes to get there. Despite his elite skills he is able to relate well to the beginner, understand the different issues they are having, and provide a solution. I've been taking lessons at Colin's house where he has a couple of drum sets in the basement. The equipment he has is very good. It can be a little cold in the basement during a minnesota winter but when you're drumming it's not a big deal. I would say that his basement is an average place to play, but he's got good equipment which is most important. While teaching he doesn't follow a lesson book. He provides a good progression of excersises that allow you to gradually learn while using the entire drum set. Colin is a great teacher who is always willing to answer your questions and provides very fun lessons."

Drumming With Your Weak Hand: 3 Helpful Tips

If you're like most drummers, you have one hand that doesn't always like to cooperate. And for some, the frustration that ensues makes it much easier to just ignore the problem and favor the dominant hand. Over time, while the stronger hand gets better control and technique, the weaker hand just gets... well, weaker and weaker. But just like switch hitters are invaluable players on a baseball team, learning how to build strength in your weaker hand can make you a much more efficient drummer. …
