My drum lessons are the most fun for many reasons. I focus you on the music you love, stay as far away from boring material as possible, while teaching you the most important aspects of drumming such as technique, hand positions, posture, pocket, feel, timing, ect. But I use music as the guidance system. We will cover drum rudiments, we will cover different genres like Rock, Pop, Metal, Hip Hop, Classic Rock, Reggae, EDM. We will have a blast.

Jason instructs my 6 year old son on a weekly basis, via FaceTime. He’s fantastic. The drum lessons have been a great way to keep my kid engaged in learning music during the pandemic. Jason is patient and thorough and keeps my child focused and happy. If you’re lucky enough to get room on Jason’s schedule, take it!

I’m a bilingual professional drummer/musician with a Masters degree in music. I have also been teaching drums for more than 18 years with students of all ages, from beginners to advanced drummers. I have also toured worldwide with many top artists like Becky G., Thalia, Oscar Hernandez, Lauren Jauregui, etc. Part of the things I think are important to learn as a drummer are: How to develop independence, hand/foot technique and speed, rudiments, theory, how to play different genres among other things.

The purpose of my lessons program is to cultivate a fun and inspiring learning environment. I wish to create an atmosphere where the student feels like they are part of the family and not just merely there to take in information. I will also ask the student what they want to learn and create a personal lesson plan around that to help them achieve their goals. Everybody is different when it comes to learning (the one size fits all approach does not work). I will personally find the best way to teach each student and have them learn at the pace they are most comfortable with.

About Kody

I have been teaching drum lessons for three years and am now available to teach lessons at your home. I have helped students learn their first drum beat, I have taught students how to read music, and I have taught students how to play their first song. Everybody is different when it comes to learni

I have been behind the Drum Kit for 20 years, 13 of those years as a professional touring a recording drummer. I have taught students of all ages and all abilities to great success. Whatever your goals, whether you delight in mastering this complex instrument, or whether you hope to be a professional yourself one day, I can help you get there.

As a South African, I was raised on the drumbeats and rhythms of traditional Zulu and Xhosa folk music. Growing up in the UK, I received classical training in drum kit, chorus, and piano, and built a career as a professional drummer with the critically-acclaimed band Stornoway. I’ve played some of the world’s most renowned stages. With numerous critically-acclaimed albums, EPs, and singles under my belt, I’ve mastered all stages of recording and producing under the tutelage of some of the finest producers in the business. Now, as a New Yorker, I blend these very different approaches into a unique teaching methodology that emphasizes ...
