About Dan
I am a dissabled Security Force Member from the Air Force. I suffered a TBI, and was informed that I would have no quality of life. I read a study by Harvord, and John Hopkins on music and the brain, and I choose to follow a study in music to first increase my quality of life, and second to help others. I have learned through the years that music is the perfect tool to assist children with attention deficits. I have been performing for over thirty years, and I have been teaching for almost as long. I have taught private studio, both private and public schools. I have also, taught in two different colleges. I believe anyone can learn music, whether it is for personal edification, performance, theropy, or quality of life.

About Brandon
Hello! My name is Brandon and I grew up in Ohio. I started off my drumming career when I was twelve years old when my uncle gave me his drum set. I fell in love instantly and have been playing it almost every day since then. When I got into high school, I played in every band possible such as Jazz band, concert band, and marching band. Music is my absolute passion and I love using my talents to help others. I went to Miami University for a percussion performance degree.

I love to go on hikes in the woods, volunteer at any place I can, and take a nice vacation whenever possible. I also love to go out in nature and do some photography on the side! I am a very easy going and patient person. I look forward to getting to know you better and I promise you will have a great experience!

Dave Y. studied Afro-Cuban Percussion, Percussion and Drums at the University of Northern Colorado, the nation's 3rd largest Jazz school. He brings 17+ years of education and teaching experience to the table.

About Dave
I own a local music/art/production institution which hosts lessons for many instruments and artistic pursuits. Personally, I've been teaching for over 17 years, and I teach beginner to advanced students in instruments like guitar, bass, piano/keys, voice, and drums, and depending on your needs, our studio offers a variety of professional teachers that teach all woodwind, brass, and stringed instruments.

I also am an online teacher for a the world's biggest web platform for guitar instruction, and teach lessons alongside those in Berklee alumni, Musician's Institute, as well with many very famous artists that are now in the music business.

Though I've had the fortune to work with some of the best in studios, as a songwriter, and player, and in education, both professional and informal, I love to teach entry level players up through
the intermediate levels the most. I enjoy watching people discover things for the first time, and in my teaching I really do my best to craft my lessons to the needs of the students. My primary aim in teaching is that I would cultivate in my students a love for music and learning. With these two things in place, a student can go on to be and learn anything.

Join me and my studio. We'll have a great time, and we'll get you to your goals while we're enjoying the journey of music together!!

I teach lessons to any grade/age group. I have an extremely open mind to teaching and music in general, so nothing goes out the door in terms of philosophy, however, I've come to realize that some methods work better than others. That said, I tailor my attention and focus as an educator to the needs of student I'm teaching in front of me. I don't consider the student who just walked out of the lesson or the student who is coming in next. I put my all in the student who is in front of me because I believe time is an essential asset to lessons. Also, every case is so uniquely different in terms of students and I take a good amount of time to calibrate the learning style of every student.

About Matt
I am passionate instructor who is fueled by seeing success in others. No other feeling is more fulfilling then seeing the growth of another human.

I have been teaching private lessons in my own studio for about 8 years now. I've taught 7 marching bands and currently writing music for some with an emphasis in percussion.

Currently pursuing a degree in Music Business at Northern Illinois University. I've participated in Drum Corp. tours such as Colts Drum & Bugle Corps ('13) and Phantom Regiment ('14-'16), and also marched 5 seasons of WGI with Cavaliers Indoor Percussion.

I am thrilled to hear that you or your kid is ready to start taking drum lessons! I have been teaching drum set and percussion for eleven years, and last year finished my master's in percussion performance at CU, after a music education degree in Michigan.

I start students off with "repeat after me" style exercises to develop technique, coordination, and musical tone on the instruments. Then, we can dig into playing the music (s)he loves! I'm always curious to hear if there is a certain band or drummer my student admires?

About Stephen
Hey drummers!

I am a working drummer and percussionist in all major styles, from blues, funk, and jazz to classical and marching band.

In my off time, I enjoy playing in the mountains with my girlfriend and our cat.

The drums are the backbone of most music, so you have to be able to feel the groove and stay tight and on top of the beat. I encourage students to pick their favorite songs, and we drum to those while learning proper technique, rudiments, song form, fills, rhythm, different grooves / beats, and anything they want to know about the drums. I have been playing the drums for over sixteen years and have a Bachelor's Degree in Music from the Berklee College of Music. Drums is a beautiful art and form of expression and is just the tip of the iceberg we can tackle called Music.

About Eric
MUSIC!
I think music is the most beautiful thing in the world, so lets take time to learn and play music together.
I have been playing the drums for over sixteen years, and been in over fifteen bands in the course of that time. I have a degree in Music from the Berklee College of Music were I studied music theory and focused on Music Production and Engineering. I have been playing Piano, Bass, and Guitar for about ten years in addition to the drums, and have been recorded in sessions on each. I have a deep passion for synthesizers and electronic music, so lets make some bleeps and bloops together.

I am extremely kind, friendly, and funny so lessons with me are very relaxed and have an easy to learn environment. However I am very passionate about teaching to fit student needs; so if a student likes deadlines and homework, if that is w
hat will help them learn the best, then that is how I will teach.
Lets make some sweet music together!!

As an educator, I strive to provide my students with the tools that they will need to explore the direction that they want to take with their instrument. This can include from enjoying drumming as a hobby, performing in small jazz ensembles, recording electronic and acoustic drums in major recording studios, to performing with a full orchestra! There is literally no limit to what you can do.

My focus is to get hobbyists to enjoy performing drums in the comfort of their own home or with friends, and to have my professionally-minded students go out into the world of performing and recording music. All of these environments are where the ultimate joy of playing an instrument can be expressed.

As a gigging and studio musicians, I understand what it takes to get to the stage or studio, apply oneself in that environment, and come away with a satisfying experience that you can then build upon for the rest of your life.

About James
Hi! I have been a drumset educator for over 3 decades. I benefited from formal education on the drumset, and I want to pass that along to you so you can experience the full joy that this wonderful instrument can bring you! I understand that each student's journey is specific to them as an individual. As such I tailor my teaching to the direction that they want to go with drumming.

Jim has been a fantastic teacher to our son. He explains everything patiently and approaches his lessons very systematically. He selects songs that incorporate essential drumming skills (e.g. songs that include doubles, paradiddles, accented notes, etc.). This way, the the student is able to develop an understanding of how theory fits practice.

I can teach drum set but also any percussion instrument you can think of-marimba, marching percussion, concert snare drum, any mallet instrument, hand drums, and more. I have a bachelor's in music education, have a lot of experience, and perform regularly to practice what I preach. I truly love to teach and work with students of any age, am great at cultivating a different teaching style to fit each individual student, and let students have a say in what they play.

About Liz
I am Michigan native percussionist with a Bachelor's in Music Education and my teaching certificate. I currently teach at Columbine High School as their Percussion Director, and run all their percussion programs like drum line, front ensemble, winter percussion, and more.

I have studied hand drums in Ghana, Africa, so I love to play anything in that realm! I am also pursuing my Masters in Percussion Performance, and love to play marimba, snare drum, and really any percussion instrument. To see me play, you can search "Liz Karney" on you tube, and I have several videos that will come up.

I have taught students of many ages, from 6th grade through college students and love them all. So whether you are just getting started or looking for a musical challenge I can help you find what you're looking for!

I have experience in the public school system teaching at The Cleveland School of the Arts, an alternative public school for artistically gifted students in the Cleveland, Ohio Metropolitan School District. Additionally, I am a drum/percussion instructor at Hunterdon Preparatory School, an alternative public School in Annandale, New Jersey. I have marching band

Lastly, I have seven years of private lesson instruction experience teaching students of all kinds and all ability levels including beginners as young as five years old, mentally disabled students, and intermediate-advanced adults.

I pride myself on my flexibility as an educator. All students are different and all students learn differently, and I hope we can find out what works best for you to meet your musical goals.
