I want to help you be the best percussionist you can be. With percussion, there are so many different instruments to play but what ties it all together is the technique you use to play the instruments.

Here’s my secret! To get the best, most resonant sound out of any instrument I strike. That’s it.

How you do that is dependent on the instrument, the mallet choice, the striking area, the touch, and many other factors. I want to help you with these so you can progress faster, learn how to think about these choices quicker and easier, so you can make BETTER music FASTER!

sooooooo much fun taking hand drum lessons from Brian! Ultra beginner student is me (shhh I'm getting better!). I decided to learn bongos plus the djembe ( I don't own either drum BUT he has them at his studio so it was cool )......He is very supportive when I try the exercises he shows me and no pressure to be a pro right away lol. I will keep coming to learn more and more I like the salsa stuff he showed me at lessons.......and don't worry Brian I am about to buy a set of bongos to practice at home! Cool guy - recommended!!!
Luther
This dude can play! Brian is a great teacher.. we did some hand drums and drum set for the few lessons we had together. I was new to learning music and glad I came across Brian because he is a chill guy with positive light. I felt as if I could take drums as far as I wanted with Brian as my teacher. I will be back for some more lessons when my wife lets me lol.
Jessie
Quality drum teacher. I took lessons with Brian for about a year and his teaching style is relaxed compared to other drummers I studied with. I never felt rushed with the exercises, we always went at my pace. I recommend this teacher.

Hi, I'm Jeremiah! I've been playing drums/percussion since I was 11 years old. I'm 23 now with a BM in Percussion Performance and I love playing all types of music! Currently I:
• gig with local artists that come from a range of genres: from jazz to pop to rock to folk
• also have experience playing percussion in symphony orchestras/concert bands
• have also held the drum/percussion seat for 14 different musicals
If any or all of those areas are of interest to you, I'd love to see if we'd make a good match! I'm super excited to share what I've learned (and am still learning) with beginning/intermediate students that love the thrill and challenge that comes from performing live music, no matter what form that takes.

Tom is such an amazing instructor! He is incredibly passionate about percussion and it comes through in his teaching style. He is patient and takes the time to makes sure to cover the fundamentals as applied to learning a song. I look forward to our lesson every week!

Taking drum lessons with Thomas online has been so rewarding. I finally dusted off my old drums and went on a search to find a great teacher and I found him. I'm not looking to become the next Neil Peart or anything. Just want to have fun and learn. He's very easy to talk to and helps me grasp musical concepts in a really digestible way. He has me working on exercises and my durability on the drum set has improved worlds beyond where I thought I could ever be. I really love his work with Minor Characters, a Chicago band he was in. I'm an older guy but I was motivated by Thomas to start jamming in the garage with some friends of mine who play guitar and bass We have about 10 songs we play each week and Thomas helps me work through each one and every week I get better. Take lessons with this guy. He'll change your life!
Scott
Thomas is such a good teacher. He's patient with me and is so incredible about breaking down a music for me and helping me understand what I'm playing. I've become a better drummer two times over after working with him for a few months. He's very kind, too, and very flexible with my schedule! Can't recommend him enough.

"I was honored to take a hand percussion lesson from David after hearing him perform with a major arena tour and a phenomenal jazz trio!. Although the setting for the lesson happened to be intimidating, David was able to help me focus on my strengths as a player and showed me how to build on them. He excels at building confidence and inspired me to integrate world percussion into my work as an elementary school teacher. I highly recommend him as an educator who knows how to motivate and bring out the best in students. I look forward to taking lessons online in the future!"

"I am a high school band director and Cameron was our percussion instructor last school year. He did a wonderful job with the students! He covered all areas of percussion from marching band, to concert band, and even percussion ensemble. He pushed the students and expanded their skills on all percussion instruments, all while keeping things engaging for the students. He programmed for and rehearsed our three percussion ensembles last year. Cameron was an integral part of our band program and our students loved working with him!"
