Stephen B.

Private Percussion Teacher

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 ten years, and last year finished my master's in percussion performance at CU, after a music education degree in Michigan.

I start my 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.

Mike is going to be great instructor. He was able to quickly assess my level of experience and we already have the next few lessons planned out. I'd recommend him for any age or style you want to learn.
Margaret
Mike is an exceptional teacher. I’ve been a teacher, my parents were both teachers, we pay a lot of tuition to put our children in schools with (theoretically) well-paid and highly qualified teachers: IOW, I am really picky about teachers! Mike is the epitome of patience and clearly devoted to music and instruction. He is professional and conscientious. He kept my son challenged, engaged, and motivated to practice and improve. Truly, Mike is the kind of teacher you wish populated every classroom.
Christopher
Mike is awesome! Super down to earth and easy to talk to. He is understanding and patient and seriously takes the time to help you grasp new concepts and increase comfortability with new styles. He is an incredible musician and really understands the deeper meaning behind any drum style or technique that you are trying to learn. I have been a self taught drummer my whole life and I moved to Denver to attend CU for music after getting out of the Army. Mike helped me to prepare for my entrance exams and my drum kit audition, which I knocked out the park. I am now a full blown music student and officially on path to my dream career. Thank you Mike!! I'm looking forward to more lessons and to continue improving!

Have had over 8 years experience playing percussion in concert band. Would love to help you. Have lots of experience helping with music notation, site reading, and rhythms on various music al instruments. Thanks!

About Kevin

I truly enjoy teaching. I've taught in the public school classroom for 11 years. Teaching music is so so much FUN! And it should be fun for the students to learn. When I'm teaching I tell all my students that if they don't enjoy and smile about something, then we need to change something.

Kevin is a great teacher - he has brought out the drummer in my 2nd grader, and he has been able to do this through Zoom, not even face to face. Highly recommended!
Kristin
Kevin is an enthusiastic and professional teacher! He has built up my son's confidence, and given him opportunities to perform and hone his percussion skills. I highly recommend Kevin!
Aidan
I was out of town when my 15-year old son had his lesson with Kevin, so I sent a text to my son to find out how it went. "He is the best guitar teacher ever!!" my son replied. I think that says it all.

Perry knows his stuff! His instruction and book have helped me become a solid drummer. I look forward to learning more from this talented musician. Thank you Perry!
M.Lancaster
Didn't think online drum lessons would work, but they do and I am thrilled I found Perry as my teacher! His Drum Control book is the perfect guide and I am improving with every lesson. Thanks Perry!
Gerry
Returning to drums after several years, I found that the "Drum Control" book Perry created and wrote really cleaned up my technique and got me going again with the essential tools I needed. I can't believe how easy it was with this great book. The combination of his teaching and book got me rockin' in no time! Perry is a real pro and knows what he's doing. I am learning from the best! Thanks Perry!

Patient, focused, encouraging and time efficient. He was good at keeping our youngster on task and making the experience fun. Wish he was able to take our child further with piano. I don't know how much was Tyler and how much was our child, but our kiddo learned quickly from Tyler. Thank you Tyler!

"Steve D. is an excellent teacher! My daughter is in the band at her middle school, and she started taking lessons a few weeks before school started. She was worried about having to play a part on the bells that she did not know. Steve showed her exactly how to play it, and she was able to play the whole piece before leaving her lesson. She came worried, and she left confident! Steve is very patient, and is able to answer any question you ask him regarding percussion. He is very kind as well, and I would recommend him to anyone who needs lessons."
