John S.

Lancaster, OH

About John

I have been interested in drums for as long as I can remember. When I was very young I remember trying to imitate drummers from the bands I was listening to at the time. I had a toy field goal kicker that would kick a ball through the goal posts when I pressed down on the player's helmet. I remember taking the goal posts apart and using them as drumsticks. I would use those "drumsticks" to play on the side of my bed when listening to my favorite drummers. My interest in drumming hasn't diminished at all since those days.

I joined the school band program when I was in the fifth grade an
d I have played the drums for over 30 years in a variety of musical settings such as marching band, symphonic band, jazz band, worship team and home recording. A group of neighbors and schoolmates that I kept in touch with over the years contacted me sometime ago and asked me to record drum tracks for them. I'm privileged to have the opportunity to play on some of their albums.

I'm very thankful for the great drum instruction I have received over the years. In high school I studied with a drummer who played with musicians and bands such as The Ohio State University Jazz Ensemble, The Glenn Miller Orchestra, Woody Herman, Diane Schuur, Maynard Ferguson and Tony Bennett. I have no doubt that these lessons played a big role in me winning the 1987 Louis Armstrong Jazz Award in high school. I have also attended Capital University’s Summer Drumset Workshop and a Drum Fantasy Camp at Seton Hall University. Some of the instructors involved at these university events were performers/educators such as Steve Houghton, Ed Soph, Steve Smith and Dave Weckl.

Drum lessons really helped advance my understanding of music and drumming. I improved my reading, listening and technical skills and even began transcribing drum parts. I now use Sibelius software for transcriptions. I enjoy passing along to students what I've learned from my excellent teachers and would be happy to help with just about any style of music (Rock, Blues, Country, Jazz, Latin, etc.).

*** Lesson Details ***
My goal is to help each student realize their personal goals in drumming. I help them do that by building a good foundation and then adding to that foundation. Building the foundation can include method books, rudiments, playing with a metronome and developing reading skills. After this foundation has been built we then use these skills to, most importantly, make some music. We will listen to and analyze the drumming of many important players and incorporate their innovations into our own musical personalities.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have a drum set in a finished basement with seating for parents available.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can bring method books, but the student will need to have everything else (instrument, sticks, stereo with headphones, etc.). A smoke-free environment will also need to be available.

*** Specialties ***
I grew up with rock music for the most part but over the years I've tried to develop competency with as many musical styles as possible (Rock, Blues, Jazz, Latin, Country, R&B, Reggae, Motown, etc.).

First thing,John and his family are very nice people.Being a little older person looking to play as a hobby. I still knew that in order to even be a decent drummer, you have to learn the fundamentals first.John in my opinion is like a professor of the drums.Like anything worth anything in life,it takes lots of hard work and practice in order to come close to perfection.John has the knowledge to give you all the tools that you need to strive towards that perfection.

John is a wonderful drum instructor. I was very interested in learning the underlying drum structure and rudiments before progressing on into other complicated drum techniques. His teaching style is perfect for everyone from a beginner to an advanced player. He has an in depth knowledge of the drumming industry from his own personal experiences and from teaching as well. He is able to communicate in such a way that is very easy to understand for both the lessons and the practice homework. I highly recommend John!

William F.

Columbus, OH

About William

Hi, my name is Bill F. and am very interested in excited about the possibility of helping students reach their highest level of performance in four areas: piano, bass guitar, table tennis and PSAT testing. I have played piano (40 years), majored in music and graduated in psychology from Ohio State University (PhD), played bass guitar (multiple bands 1962-present), table tennis (50 years--have a pretty good game), and have worked with a wide variety of students on maximizing their test taking potential and overcoming test anxiety before retiring from psychology. I am new to the field of private
lessons, but am confident that I can help you discover the joys similar to those that I have experienced in the above areas. I am 64, in good health, and have been married for 31 years, have three children whom I have coached in soccer, baseball and basketball and have helped them get a good start in life--have had great success over the years as a coach and mentor. Followed Jesus since '76.

My name is Trevor and I'm in 8th grade. My dad taught Brad's college racquetball class so I met him before our first lesson. He is a cool guy and helped me learn new drum parts on some of my favorite songs. He likes to break everything down and it helps a lot. I would recommend Brad to any drummer who is just starting out or is already really good.

Alex S.

Carroll, OH

About Alex

Hello! I'm Alex,

I've been writing, playing and performing music live since I was about 13. I was primarily self-taught, and later on took guitar and music theory lessons to supplement the knowledge I had already acquired on my own in order to better understand the systems and language used to communicate musical ideas. I also have been in groups that have performed live since a very young age, so I can also show you how to apply what you learn in a practical setting- be it playing live, writing your own music, or even if you would like to learn how to record yourself! My teaching style is
extremely personalized and I take the time to make sure each one of my students is progressing in a way that is specially suited to his or her needs and goals. I've always had outstanding feedback from my clients and I hope I can also help you accomplish everything you set out to do and more!
